Yeah, but how?
The contango on USO is an outright rip-off.
Buy the derivative of oil , ie , food. If oil gets more expensive , so does our food.
Fertilizers : POT , MOS or an agri ETF like DBA
Cotton has also been on a tear due to higher oil.
I know i know , its paper. Apart from precious metals though the only way to truly hedge this clusterfk of an economy is to buy land or real estate with no leverage. Not for the little people.
Go long food stamp futures. The ultimate oil derivative.
WHEN oil gets more expensive, everything gets more expensive.
Between PPI and Transpo, there won't be any more profit, but do continue pitching your "blood from stones" biz plan.
contango is gone.
red is CL, Black is contango %
I don't day trade oil...so my investment horizon is different. PBT is the probably the best pure play, but it can make your taxes complex if you trade it often.
actually, almost every oil producing country will need to boost production because they'll need the cash to keep the masses under control.
I think we'll start to see a total collapse in price in the next 4 weeks.
Lots of countries will gladly by oil
at any price to rid themselves of USD.
High oil prices are here to stay.
Saudis cant put more oil in the market, they
know it and most people with a little knowledge
on the subject knows that.
High oil prices in dollars are here to stay, because the dollar is worth less every day.
Gulf War I, redeux.
Where are they getting this oil from? Surely the Saudis know they are running out?
light sweet crude is what refineries like..try selling the Saudi heavy oil and there is just not many refineries set up to process it quickly.
sour crude cost less/bl for that reason.
Jubail refineries and up the coast to Oz. Out come da gas-->refined product to EU and US. - Ned
There are in China.
So that explains the gap up on the futures.
Drill baby drill! Sarah Palin says there lots of oil in Alaska.
Nobody wants the Saudi salt water blend sludge. As always they are hoping the propaganda works again.
Riyadh/London, 24 February (Argus) — Saudi Arabia has contacted European oil companies to ask them about quantities and qualities of crude that they will need to compensate for the loss of Libyan supplies, a senior Saudi official told Argus today.
“Saudi Arabia has expressed its willingness to meet the requests of those companies, but it wants to know the quantities and qualities of crude required,” he said. “We will do everything possible to meet the needs of the European companies, but they need to tell us how much they need and what kind of crude,” he added= guess what ???????????????
Saudi Aramco in London told Argus today that it has been in contact with European companies Total, Eni, and Mediterranean refiners Hellenic, and Motoroil to provide reassurance that Aramco is ready to provide extra crude and to enquire about the companies' needs. None of the European companies have requested extra oil yet, added Aramco.
It is unclear whether those refiners in the Mediterranean and Asia-Pacific markets offered Saudi crude as an alterative — rather than west African — would take it, as it is more sour and heavy than Libyan crude.
You are correct
Saudi Oil reserves are so easy to lie about because they just pump more salt water in to replace the oil lol.
Hello fellow citizen's on the Zerohedge country.
For those who believes oil is going down, let
me bring you a little dose of reality.
Peak oil isn't the problem here. Period.
What is the problem here?
Currency debasing or energy output?
It's all around the same, you can't print more
money than energy you have to back it up.
Start to repair your bicycle because you will
have to start to use it real soon.
World's oil supply has been peaking every year for the past 40. And the sky is falling as well.
Are you on your petro period again?
Hey my troll friend.
That looks like a great argument of what I just
Everyone is going to suffer of that "petro
period" especially those who are in denial.
But, thinking more crealy I believe I should
change the term, from " Petro Period" to "Petro
What we are just about to suffer is a "Petro
Menopause": No more oil down pipes.
Beat it, gnat.
The Bernanke Put
The Saudi Call
You can't print oil. You can't print food. You can't print anything but promises.
There was an awesome cartoon I read years ago which was titled, Rush Limbaugh eats the World or Eats Everything). Very very telling.
I smell Ed Bernays in all this jawboning.
I dig the painting.
Thanks Snow. ORI
There are some secret protocols that the world is not aware of and that have been negotiated since the last year :
In a high level meeting between Saudi potentates and the Tea Party conclave of uber alles neo-cons, it was agreed that Sarah Palin would visit Saudi territory in the weeks following their meeting. This was fueled by two major considerations : Her "drill baby drill" campaign inciting US oil barons to pump in her native Alaska scared the shits out of the Arab Nabobs. Additionally, they were aware at that time of the imminent Wikileaks about their own Peak oil. In the face of the imminent double whammy the Saudis implored SP to visit the Saudi soil and bless Saudi oil wells with her 'hockey mom' song. She gracefully complied, against due payment of a sum in pure gold to her personal coffers, whose amount is a state secret only known in Fort Knox where her physical treasure lies hidden.
As a result of Saint SP's visit, the Saudi government is proud to announce that all extra production in Saudi wells to replace falling Libyan output, will be in form of SWEET hi-grade oil, alike the Libyan quality! Thanks to the lord, SP flies/rides again, like her childhood hero Destry, alias Ronald Reagan!!
China: no limit on nukes....................
Whom the Gods wish to destroy they first drive mad. If Oil is Sauron's ring on the finger of USA, the nuke mirage will be the same on China's fattening finger. Sticky fingers in perspective! On both sides of the G2 divide...
Keep it up Khalid and Abdullah....soon you'll have to pump that shit yourself.
The world dances closer to the precipice. Yea, oil prices will go down along with the rest of the waste- based economies.
Modernity's bill collector can be seen at the end of the road, like the fifth horseman of the you-know-what.
Meanwhile, Saudia's ponzi scheme is added to all the other ponzi schemes. Try something over and over and over and one day it will come up with a different outcome, right?
Oil prices are not going down even though the
economy goes down the drain.
First: Bernanke will mantain the printing press to full throtle even if US hits hyper inflation.
Second: Worldwide industrilized agriculuture
has been built upon fossil fuels. (pesticides and
fertilizers are made from this)
Third: The world has reached the 7Billion
people milestones, these people including you
and me needs food, therefore energy prices will
continue to sky rocket.
There can't be more money than energy you have to back it up.
Oil could always spike down, witness 2008-2009. I agree that it will not stay cheap short of total economic collapse.
Buy the dips....at the risk of overstating the case, compare the yield on PBT with the 10 yr. Part of any reasonably diversified investment portfolio should be the cash flow from an oil field....
I say, gas the baby-boomer generation and clear up some space. Only trouble, I'm one of them. If we all jump into the deep blue sea in one fell sweep I'll volunteer to do so. On that day so appropriately named april fool's day, April 1, 2012, lets make Nostradamus's prediction half true. All baby-boomers jump off or report for gasification duty.
It's always been easier to promise oil production increase than to do it.
Have a look at Iraq's recent projections of 13 million barrels per day by 2013.
They presently do about 2.3 mbpd.
Oil price can definitely go down, even priced in dollars. The overall trend and fundamentals are up of course, but if price gets up to $150 again (or maybe $200 if you factor in QE2,3...) and we have a repeat of "08, price could get down around $50-60 again. As long as the Middle East is on fire, so will oil prices. Of course we brain dead Americans continually waste this incredible resource to drive back and forth to Walmart to buy a bunch of crap we don't need, instead of using it to build a 21st Century, sustainable, environmentally friendly infrastructure. Sad, really. http://therookiecynic.wordpress.com/2010/10/12/your-lethal-education-par...
This is the gist.... basically we have ~1 trillion barrels of goo to play with, and if we don't leverage that into something better and "sustainable", we will have shot our wad and have nothing to show for it.
MOAR OILS PLZ
Saudi Arabia is going to get hit with these revolutions and they are horribly afraid of it, especially since 90% of the oil production comes from the Shia dominated East.
