One thing is dangerously flawed in a world the place the worth of crude oil can drop 5.6% in a single session, as occurred final night time in New York. My temporary thought about crude oil from three days in the past and the dissection of Dubai’s actual property cycle was destroyed by critics who assured me that I didn’t perceive that Saudi Arabia’s order is Biden’s demand and that the legal guidelines of the economic system, let stand gravity, be retracted. the thrice resurrected Palm Jebel Ali. This will likely very properly be true as my IQ is extra Densa than Mensa, however the proof of the pudding is within the tasting and God is aware of the one style/judgment that issues is worth motion.
So my buddies who’re the horrendous drop in crude oil costs by over 70% in July-December 2008 and June 2014 to February 2016 or the top recreation of the most recent speculative, parabolic actual property/off-plan growth forgotten, ought to instantly get an MBA or Masters (and Mistress?) of Bubbleology and Amnesia. There are some traumas that the human mind has developed because the starting of time to neglect earlier than it will possibly heal, and greed, stupidity, and excessive octane are inherent to the human situation.
It could be the reggae music that’s the religious soundtrack of my life, however Rasta Matt has no constructive vibes in regards to the world credit score cycle and has no intention of jammin’ till the jam’s over, like Bob Marley is with the Lord Jah on Mount Zion , the Excessive Instances and Dreadlocks at Penn passed off in a galaxy way back and Common Darth Vader and his undertaker/caretaker Prime Minister dominated the nation my great-granduncle based 76 years in the past, whereas the previous Captain of Sussex is the brand new Lord Voldemort, He-Who -Shouldn’t be talked about.
The Sultans of Swing assured us that Brent was on its solution to 100, however it’s now 86.3 and the shut name has Densa laughing all the best way to the financial institution, except Putin destroys commerce tonight by lobbying for nuclear weapons in Kiev and the most important brief squeeze in historical past. black gold. The indicators are actually unmistakable. Demand for gasoline has fallen to its lowest degree in 25 years. Inventories are constructing on the Cushing storage hub for WTI. Chinese language demand for diesel is within the pits. The spot vine in Rotterdam is positioned for abundance. The labor market is cooling down. The Fed’s fee shock has injected HIV into the bloodstream of the credit score market and that is inflicting the decline in junk bond spreads to be one other information level that proves my thesis: the worth motion of the HYG chart over the previous week.
Oil costs have fallen $10 at the same time as Riyadh and Moscow have introduced their manufacturing cuts will proceed as a New Yr’s reward to the worldwide economic system. It is not in regards to the supply anymore, bro. The assault has hit the shan and the destruction of demand is now the brand new Baba Yaga of Wall Avenue, the witch of the darkish forest. I am retarded, however I will be damned if I did not get the message of backwardation in Brent futures spreads final week and that is why I warned my buddies in Dubai that oil was about to plummet, which is strictly what’s occurring in actual time occurs.
