There Goes Oil

Tyler Durden's picture





 

An hour ago we said: "Watch for the reaction in crude following the vote passage, and
especially following Bloomberg headlines that France has launched an all
out attack." Well the attack is still pending, but the oil reaction is here (and nobody could have seen it coming). WTI just passed $103. Demand destruction or no demand destruction, here we come. And just imagine what happens when Japan is fully back on line again (in about a year at which point the US will be between QE 4 and 5).

"In unit No 4, a whole wall is missing from the area where spent fuel rods are stored while they cool to a safe temperature. 

Inside the building, a green-painted crane, which is normally used to move the fuel rods, caught the daylight flooding into the hall.
Beneath the crane, just out of shot, is the pool holding the fuel rods, which should contain water 45ft deep but which has now boiled dry"

The Japanese got to change the rules re. how much radiation the firefighters were allowed to be exposed to.  In that same vein, the Keynesian cheerleaders will now claim $100+ oil (WTI) has no adverse affect upon the economy.  Looks like this madness will continue until the great R-E-S-E-T button gets pushed.

Maybe ZH could take a poll on when the R-E-S-E-T button gets pushed.  At this pace, it can't be too far in the future.

The Bernank said the price of oil is relative. In relative terms the price of oil has not really changed much lately, which proves his point that there is no inflation. The mistake people make, and thankfully we have prof Ben to clarify this for us is, we are doing the math wrong. If we would simply do our math correctly then we would all clearly see his point on benign inflation.

It is all simply a matter of where your measuring a change from, the starting price. So for example if the price of oil starts at $100 and rises to $110 thats the same as if it starts at $25 and rises to $27. It's all relative to where you start from. When it goes from $200 to $220... you understand... all in good time.

Not so much alarmist, they are more behaving like a media puppets, swallowing the news without question.

Which is a different assessment of news media than normal...

CNBC - Subjective interpretations of economic news and data (lies and spin) about the state of the US economy.

Sky, ABC News etc - A balanced, reasonable and objective analysis of what is happening in Japan.

So Mr. Gahdaffi's biggest weapon is the million plus barrels of oil that may or may not be exported. I doubt there is much spare capacity (oil-wise) anywhere in the world, and any shrinkage of supply will show once again that most economies don't shrink very gracefully.

Patriots was ok, but I prefer "The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse"

http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Survival-Manual-Surviving-Economic/dp/98705...

The problem with Patriots is here's the preface: buy a retreat 400 miles from anything, stock it with half a million worth of gear and head there when the economy collapses.  Sounds great in theory, it's unrealistic in practice not to mention, these retreats will likely become your own fully stocked murder site.

Ferfal's book is a lot more practical and realistic.  It also has some great lists for bug out bags and regular prep, etc.

hehehehe....Obama out of town this weekend.  I mean out of the country.  Does that leave Biden in charge?  I wonder what is going down this time.  Hopefully he has the Cheney handbook and not the My Pet Llama.

If the Pentagon or Hillary or any world leader need to discuss war with Libya, they can find Biden at the Amtrak train station named in his honor.

"As a thank-you to its most famous customer, Amtrak is renaming the train station in Wilmington, Del., after stimulus “sheriff” Vice President Joseph R. Biden - after the project received $20 million in stimulus money and came in $5.7 million over the initial announced budget.

Spokesmen for Mr. Biden, who said he personally fought for stimulus money for Amtrak, didn’t respond to messages Wednesday or Thursday.

But Amtrak said it alone made the decision to rename the station in honor of the vice president. The company also said its own budget projection was always greater than the $32 million the White House announced back in 2009 - though Amtrak itself also listed the $32 million cost that year, later raising the price tag to $37.7 million."

I added when it dipped below 40...with Japan and USA printing like "madmen" and an all out war with Libya, oil will go through the roof.

Exactly as predicted in this February 6th chart, the second peak related to supply interruptions begins.It will reach Brent 125-130 by April 1st, when either Gadaffi will be finished, or demand will drop, because of price of e.g. Japan going nuclear.

Now of course this second spike in Oil will not help stocks, the nicely follow the slope of decline I predicted on February 6th. I predicted the peak date correctly, and slope for more than 1,5 months ahead. I think the prediction will be correct also for next months.

What is more interesting, is a prediction for a final spike in silver (and similarly gold) before 40-50% correction coming very soon, at about 45 USD. I do not know what can be causing that spike in silver and correction - Japans QE and following sales of its gold reserves? Or dollar strengthening on Libyas war and Europes problems? I do not know, but the aggregate of all events will make silver look like it is in the chart. Its currently going hyperexponential for too long, and to fast, and that never lasts. Exponential growth can last, superexponential- never.
