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

Happy last Friday in February! And the bears are back on top (like our little fella to the left) in Natgasworld™, as warm weather wanes the will of the bulls, while falling production at such a minimal rate keeps supply glut concerns firmly on the radar. Meanwhile, crude prices have pushed on to nine-month highs as the spotlight has finally shifted away from Greek woes as a second Greek bailout was approved (sequel coming soon?). This respite has left the bullish influences of hope (of economic growth) and fear (of Iranian oil supply losses) to rally prices, as economic data leans positive, while Iranian actions remain confrontational. But no more delay, let’s hit the (food) tray!

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

Burrito Bites

Good day, good day!  Crude has toppled below the monkey bar of $100 late on this week as – would you believe – Euro debt concerns arise once more. In addition, crude has been clobbered by a disheartening domestic demand situation. Total product demand is down 7.2% on this time last year, while gasoline demand has just plummeted to its lowest level since 2001. And while on the subject of plummeting to new lows, the good ship natty has keeled over and made a decade low as supply remains staunch and the storage surplus swells (…while weather is set to swelter). Ay, there’s the rub, and here’s the grub. » read more
