Hope Fizzles - Your Latest JBSFC

Wed, Jan 27, 2016 - 8:18am

The seeming good news of last week has faded away. Like the previous Cold War of the 20th Century, where instances of détente and optimism abounded only to fade away, The New Cold War is once again deteriorating into a dangerous war of words and escalation.

As usual, please make the time to listen to this week's comprehensive update from Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen.

And Crude rallies. Why?

Gas and distillates inventories are beginning to decline. So, while crude inventories are enormous, business activities to refine it into usable energy derivatives is subsiding (especially in distillates). This is seen as a healthy industrial response by limiting capital expenditures towards overcapacity...hence, finding a natural balance. Crude is going to hold price due to the fact that it is a finite resource and future demand presumed. I don't expect much more downside even with massive inventories.

I hope

no one here subscribes to this deuche bag. In his latest article Avi Gilburt chides and makes fun of GATA. This guy is a complete self serving asshole. I wont even post the article. This guy is the queen of trolls and king of assholes. He doesnt care about truth or justice. He only provides confusion and cares about himself and convincing you to buy his service.

They Want War . . .

and peace negotiations aren't going to get in the way of that. Its the 'best tool for reordering a society' (research Norman Dodd and his Congressional work on private foundations).

Vlad seems to be playing the waiting game . . . hoping the Europeans will wake up before this thing is launched.

Warren / douche bag

You're English, aren't you JW? !!

Anyway, I never cease to be amazed at why people would insert equipment like that into themselves when it could be avoided by taking a large bowl of pinhead / steelcut oats every morning (without sugar).

Unless, of course, they enjoy it. Oh well ----- it takes all types, eh ...........

Highest oil inventories since 1930! Ho hum.

Totally overshadowed by FOMC press release today...

The Management Of Perception Economics is strong in this one.

Steelcut oats????

perhaps if the user was from Scotland!!!!!! You might want to look at the special adaptor located in the bottom left hand of the picture, to understand what this device is to be used for.
