File Under: Resurfacing Rumors of Oil Exports

Yesterday’s appearance on Fox Business was a last-minute affair, prompted by rumors resurfacing about the ramping up of oil US exports on a broad scale. Hark, click on the below mugshot to launch to the clip:

This Isn’t Everything They Are

It’s not that I am the hugest fan of Northern Irish band Snow Patrol (although songs such as ‘How To Be Dead’‘Run’ and You’re All I Have are terrific), but it was the release of their new album ‘Fallen Empires’ this week with the single ‘This Isn’t Everything You Are’ which has set me off on one almighty tangent…

File Under: And on drums…

This morning’s appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box was once again a brief one question at the end of the segment, but at least I got to show off my drumming skills. Hark, click on the mugshot below to launch to the clip. Ready, and 1..2..3..4:

Pops and Drops

The title of this post would have been much funnier (maybe) if I had actually appeared on CNBC’s (Pop ‘n Droptastic) Fast Money as I was going to – but instead I was on Power Lunch (which although great, makes this title just a little less appropriate).

Heck, no – I am pushing on through regardless to illustrate some pops and drops that have been served up by financial markets in the last few days. The turmoil in MENA* ( = Middle Eastern and North Africa) has flipped markets around like a pancake – some have headed ceiling-bound and stuck, and some have crumbled in a pile on the floor.

Burrito bites

Yo hey, we have made it to the end of another week. Natural gas has made a five-month high on the prompt. Natural gas has made a one-month low on the prompt. Yes, natural gas has been all over the shop (although the Cal12 strip has swan-dived below $5). WTI crude oil is seeing some late buying after what can only be described as a torrid week for the US benchmark, as it has been shunned like a red-headed stepchild for high inventories at Cushing, OK, where it is priced – and disowned by the rest of the crude complex. Inbetwixt this nuttiness, Japan has been downgraded, housing data has been eclectic, and New York has had a snow day. February rolls around next week (already, wowee), so let’s celebrate slinging out January, and lettuce prepare (worst pun ever) for the year of the Rabbit on February 3rd. Hark, chow’s up so let’s chow down:  » read more
