No light at the end of the tunnel

In Dec 2015 US Federal Bank had the first rate hike in a decade ,to be increased in baby steps to reach the 2%... We called it then " Not a serious plan , and will not be taken seriously by the market." because ,today ,the market is technically smarter than the central banks.

The Triumphant Trump

“ America First” this policy is not new and often referred to as "beggar-thy-neighbor policy“, and it is a text straight out of the 1930 Great Depression's text book. In 1930, the Hawley–Smoot Tariff Act raised U.S. tariffs on over 20,000 imported goods to record levels.

Crude oil price “free fall” is coming to an end

Opec is learning from the US Fed Bank a new crude oil pricing tactic in baby steps . In Dec 2015 US Federal Bank had the first rate hike in a decade to be increased in baby steps to reach the 2.5% by end of 2016 . After 11 months and 23 press conferences without changing the rate,the Fed kept the market expecting a hike in the rate.

Petroleum Inventory Trap

The crude oil prices are heading towards $35 and should continue to fluctuate between The present level of $50 and the $38.

The Oil Prince

“ Low prices are not our problem… We sell at any price “. This statement is strong enough to stop the heart of anyone who is waiting for an artificial dose of oil price stimuli”. In fact,it was a death-blow to the new oil barons on the eve of Doha meeting. The Oil Prince did at 30 years of age what a sixty six years old OPEC organisation failed to do. What the market needed is a clear message. Instead of “ Softlysoftly” approach practiced by all OPEC members:

Why lift the ban after 40 years

Cool summer in the Oil Market

The Data Published today May 13 2015 by EIA () tells different tell. Looking at Oil inventories, (The balance sheet of the oil industry) we observe that the level of Oil Stock in 2014 was artificially very low( perhaps that was the reason why USA administration ordered destocking from SPR).
