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

Burrito bites

Yo y’all, it’s been another nutty week in the world of energy, as Brent crude has made 18-month lows, while WTI has disco-danced its way back into the 70’s (to $77 to be specific); worsening economic data on a global front has been the overwhelming drag on prices this week. Natural gas is seeing record temperatures across parts of the US boosting cooling demand, but even the impending formation and threat of the fourth-named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season cannot propel prices too much higher (insert Debby downer joke here). Enough from me, it’s time to eat:

Happy Friday once again! US natural gas has had its week defined by a rampant 14% rally on Thursday due to a bullish storage report, after prices had rappelled down to seven-week lows. Crude has been relatively unmoved by a non-eventful Opec meeting, pressured lower by continued poor economic data, yet supported by hopes of a coordinated bout of stimulus by central banks to prop up the global economy again. Snacks ahoy! » read more

Burrito bites

Happy Friday folks! Sorry for no other post this week, I’ve been traveling and distracted by the triumvirate of Pittsburgh, Platts, and Pierogies (h/t Karl Renninger). I have a few in the works, and will double down in the coming week.

As for this week that was in Energyland™, there have been the usual shenanigans in Europe driving crude (…lower), while strong supply and storage sweep natty south.  Snacks ahoy! » read more

Burrito bites

Happy Nonfarm Friday! Crude is mustering a positive end to a rather lackluster week, as poor US oil demand (hark, a 13-yr low) threw a wet blanket over prices. It has taken a decent employment report here in the US today to reverse this trend. Meanwhile, natural gas is on another rollercoaster ride, falling three days in a row before rallying over 7% on the back of a slightly more bullish-than-consensus storage print on Thursday. What a week it has been…let’s hit the cuisine: » read more
