Burrito bites

I bid you all good day, and Happy Nonfarm Friday! Oil has had a decent rally in the last week on the temporary fix to the Euro debt crisis, a strike by Norwegian oil workers stymieing supply, and simmering Iranian tensions. However, interest rate cuts by the Eurozone and China and further stimulus from the Bank of England have served to scare rather than soothe markets, hence a tumbling end of the week for crude, aided by a(nother) poor US jobs report. As for natty, heat to the tune of el scorcho has propelled pricing through the key level of the 200-day moving average, although moderating weather through July may drag them back lower once again. Anyhoo, enough talk; grab your fork: » read more

100 Burrito Bites!

It is with a hint of bemusement and a pinch of pride that I introduce you to the 100th edition of Burrito bites. Not quite sure how it got to this milestone…but welcome!

And it’s been another corker of a week in Commodityland™, as crude has been pressured lower by France joining the choir for a release from emergency oil stockpiles, before supply loss fears from Iran have rebutted a price fall once more. As for natural gas, it has hovered around the middle of the $2.20 – $2.40 range it has held for most of the month as an early start to injection season for storage has kept prices anchored close to the shores of 10-year lows. But that’s enough for now, let’s hit the chow! » read more

Burrito bites

Um, word up. I’m not sure that I’ve experienced a more confusing week in markets. This week has left me scratching my head as Monday to Thursday the Dow has closed  -635; +430; -520 ; +423. Given those surreal prints in the equity market, it has impossible to make sense of current action in commodities such as crude (or cities such as London; yep, I’m so proud…). At least natural gas has been somewhat logical, insulated by its own fundamentals: stymied by record production levels but buoyed by supportive weather outlooks, increasing tropical activity, and a bullish storage number. As for the movement in crude, your guess is as good as mine as volatility, indecision, hope, and fear leave it schizophrenic. Anyway, no need to brood…here comes the food: » read more
