Oil Prices: No Real Recovery Yet

Oil Prices:  No Real Recovery Yet

The pundits continue to insist that a real recovery in oil prices has arrived or will be here shortly. They will provide a host of reasons why this will occur.

There are many brokers, investment houses, international banks […]

Currency Wars End Game

The currency wars are intensifying. The central banks of the world are becoming increasingly desperate in their efforts to bring growth back and maintain some sort of financial stability. Alas, both objectives no longer seem to be achievable at the same time anymore. Massive amounts of liquidity have been injected into the system through continuous rounds of quantitative easing. Despite these bold exertions, economic growth remains elusive and investors are becoming progressively apprehensive. The Bank of Japan officially introduced negative interest rates […]

Weekly Market Review & Target Fills February Week 3

The week began with a mini rally in equity markets due to reports that top officials from Russia, Qatar, Venezuela and most importantly Saudi Arabia, had agreed in principle to freeze oil output at the level achieved in January.

Labeled as such in 2001, the emergence of these nations was going to dramatically alter the balance of world power. The BRICS are compromised of the nations of […]

Weekly Market Review & Target Fills - February Week 1

This week was mostly watching global markets rise and fall in tandem to crude oil prices. This was especially the case in the United States.
