The Top 8 Unknowns In 2018’s Energy Markets

Authored by Peter Tertzakian via OilPrice.com, It’s that time of year when we flip our calendars to a new start.

OPEC Meeting Concludes: This Is What Was Agreed

As previewed earlier this morning, when the flurry of leaks began, today OPEC reached a deal with non-OPEC partners to extend the oil production cuts until end of 2018 (recall these were supposed to be “temporary” when originally unveiled one year ago) at their meeting in Vienna, as part of producers’ strategy to reduce global […]


WTI Tumbles Below $57 As OPEC-Hype Fades

Goldman's Damien Courvalin seems to have perfecvtly summed things up – the market was pricing in an OPEC production cut extension of 6-9 months (accounting for around a $2.50 premium in the price). Today's jawboning from Russia seems to signal April discussions (so a 6-month extension) which is a disappointment – and so WTI prices […]

Stocks Whipsawed As Europe, US Futures Rebound From China Selloff; Dollar Slides

The traditionally illiquid post-Thanksgiving week has started with a series of whipsaws across stocks and bonds, as European stocks turned positive after starting the day on the back foot, initially mirroring a slide in Chinese stocks and price action in U.S. equity futures as investors look to a possible – and absolutely critical – tax-plan […]


The Cardinal Sin Of International Finance

Authored by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com, As Doug Casey has correctly noted, the prime directive of any organism – whether it’s an amoeba or a person or a corporation or a government – is to survive.
