Good day, and wowee what a week. As the Federal Reserve steps up with a(nother) bout of stimulus, oil markets have had a fire lit under them. A sudden ratcheting up in geopolitical tension is aiding this move, as the potential for escalating protests and violence in the Middle East builds in a risk premium to pricing once more. As for natural gas, it has managed to push above the three-dollar mark, only to panic and pop its head back below once again. Hark, food for thought:  » read more

Friday = happy, happy! ( joy, joy!). Another week passes us by like a pooh stick in time, leaving natural gas to be supported by production cut threats (n.b. boy / wolf / crying ), while Brent crude has ripped to a six-month high on optimism of a happy ending to the Greek tragedy (err, hello?) before retracing with reality. Meanwhile, US-based WTI crude prices cannot swing back above the monkey bar of triple digits given woeful US demand. But it’s no time to brood, let’s hit up the food:  » read more

Where have you been?! Your dinner's on the table!

Wowee, mid-October already. Despite Halloween and the prospect of scares ahead, general markets have mustered a kangaroo-like jump higher. Crude has rallied well into double-digits in percentage terms since the lows of last week – as have equities – as economic data and hopes of containment for the Euro debt crisis (am sounding like a broken record, I know) improve. Natural gas, meanwhile, has plumbed the depths of the lows of the year, but is now seeing some support from the onset of winter temperatures on the horizon. Lots to digest – let’s hit the bitefest: » read more

Friday, a long weekend ahead, and Q3 kicked off – reasons to be cheerful, 1-2-3. And this week has brought the familiar twists and turns. Well actually, crude had been on the straight and narrow (higher) for most of this week, egged on by the exuberance of the response to the approval of a Greek austerity package, which has essentially ensured the survival of the Eurozone in its current form…for now. As for the good ship nat gas, it has shown moderate progress after bouncing from strong support around $4.20ish, as summer weather supports higher cooling demand, while the first-named storm of this Atlantic hurricane season reminds us we never know what is around the corner – so keep your eyes on the prize (exhibit 1, left). A long weekend awaits, so be sure to load up on sustenance: » read more
