Did OPEC Just Spoof The Shorts?

September 28, 2016

On Wednesday, OPEC and the Russians shocked the oil market with news of a production freeze/cut they intend to impose in November. In my latest article for Seeking Alpha, I look at this deal and wonder if it is for real or if it is just another case of jawboning, perhaps a page from the U.S. Fed, to move the price higher until the November biannual meeting of the cartel.

The Dollar Goes Nowhere After The Fed Speaks

September 26, 2016

The dollar is trading in the middle of its seven month and fifteen year range as it is between 95-96 on the active month dollar index futures contract.

The Fed Casts It’s Vote For Hillary Clinton

September 26, 2016

On Wednesday, September 21 the FOMC told markets that interest rates will remain unchanged for the ninth straight month in 2016 despite a promise of 3-4 rake hikes at last December’s meeting. In my latest piece for Seeking Alpha, I explain why I believe the Fed inaction amounts to a vote and endorsement for Hillary Clinton in the Presidential election that will take place on November 8.
