After trading as high as $73 a barrel, crude oil began to buckle under pressure as the CFTC began to look into position limits that can be held by traders.
What’s happening now is giving speculation a bad name. Speculators form a very important task in assuming risk that is being transferred from either a producer or an end-user. Without this transfer of risk, which couldn’t take place without the speculator taking the other side of the trade, prices would be artificial at best. This approach has worked for hundreds of years and over a century here in the US.
Now back to crude oil…
In my new video you will see what has happened to crude oil in the last eight days. You’ll will also see what I believe will be the area that crude oil will find support.
You can watch this video with my compliments and there is no registration requirements. I would love to get your feedback about this video on our blog.
All the best,
