File Under: Epic!

I was so excited to be on CNBC’s Squawk Box this morning, knowing my segment was with the controversial Peter Schiff. And he didn’t disappoint. While I answer a couple of questions in the middle of the segment, it all kicks off after that as Peter starts ranting and CNBC pulls the plug on him. Such a fun way to start the week!! Hark, click on the below mugshots to launch to the clip.

Burrito Bites

Good day! We bid goodbye to May, and look ahead to June (hark, Atlantic Hurricane Season, potential stimulus tapering, Wimbledon…), and the doozie of a week ahead of us. The week that was has seen oil markets try to weigh up Opec rumors and whether good is bad or bad is good is bad or good  (um, I’m lost), while natural gas has been larroped by moderating weather outlooks. But before the bountiful buffet of economic data next week, let us kick back, relax, and recharge with these snacks: » read more

Happy Nonfarm Friday! And what a thoroughly underwhelming employment report it was too, especially after all the hype. The disconcerting data is stymieing crude’s run, after WTI had got within a smidge of five-month highs (and just beyond, triple digitdom). Fortunately sense has prevailed, and rather than being enamored by the whiff of stimulus hopes, prices are instead confronting the harsh reality of this week’s poor releases. As for the good ship natural gas, it is keeling over as we are set to pass the pinnacle of hurricane season (hark, Monday), while also descending the slope of cooling demand to the base camp of shoulder season. Enough bumpf for now, ’tis time to chow:    » read more

Burrito Bites

Hello, hello! Welcome to burrito bites, which has been somewhat errant in recent weeks. There’s a bunch of bites below scanning this period (I’m mostly playing catch-up, rather than cutting edge…). Since the last snack attack, natural gas has tumbled out of three-dollardom as the end of summer is on the horizon as we slowly head toward the peak of hurricane season, unscathed thus far. As for Texas tea, oil has ripped emphatically higher on geoploitical concerns, QE3 hopes hopes of economic improvement, and a tighter supply situation. Enough fluff: here’s the good stuff: » read more
