If Katy Perry and I Were To Do a Duet…

………I would have no squabble in doing one of her hits,  but we would have to work in some commodity themes into the lyrics. So here are some ideas I am working on pitching her.

Strong as an Ox

I like this phrase a lot. I think it’s because of a colleague I used to work with in London, who instead of saying ‘good morning!’ or ‘how are you?’ would ask ‘are you strong?’ – to which you could only reply ‘strong as an ox’. (Well, you could say ‘no’, but that would kinda spoil it…). It is this phrase which resonates with me this week, as there have been a couple of market dynamics hitting the headlines which exhibit the attributes of the aforementioned bovine. So let’s get to work. » read more

Burrito Bites

Good day! And as we make it to the end of another week, crude oil is pushing on to a multi-month high on a combo of a weaker dollar and geopolitical tension, overlooking some bearish-tilted monthly reports from the EIA, IEA, and Opec, as well as some mixed economic data. As for natural gas, more moderate weather conditions (innit beautiful?!) and outlooks have sent the bulls charging to the sidelines. Snacks ahoy! » read more

Happy 12/21/12! Something big was supposed to happen today but I can’t remember for the life of me what it was. As for our dearly beloved commodities this week, oil has remained under the influence of the fiscal cliff – the skullduggery of it all leaves crude ultimately range-bound and run ragged. As for natural gas, it has shimmied higher on cooler weather outlooks, back to swing around the monkey bar of mid three-dollardom. But enough from me, it’s time for treats: » read more

Burrito Bites

Twas the eighth day before Christmas, when all through the (commodity) house, not a market was stirring, not a bull, bear, or mouse……….crude oil has had the most dullest of weeks (barring weekly inventory shenanigans, see burnt burrito below), kicking about the high $80s as half-decent economic data and apathetic cheerleading from equities have been unable to motivate it. As for natural gas, it has got walloped as immediately colder weather is overshadowed by moderating forecasts into Yuletide. Meanwhile, supply continues to increase, leaving natty on a slippery slope lower, swinging on the monkey bar that is the $4 level once more. Anyhow, utensils at the ready for an infographic-tastic set of burrito bites: » read more
