Volatility and Seasonal Shifts Make for Interesting Market Movements

Volatility and Seasonal Shifts Make for Interesting Market Movements

by | published August 19th, 2019

The last week of oil prices have been one of the most volatile in recent memory. This has prompted more analysis on the state of the market from myself and several of my colleagues.

But that’s not all that’s been volatile recently. The geopolitical situation has been getting hotter and hotter, and it’s getting nearly too hot to hold. Despite that, predictions abound on where things are heading – and how they’ll affect the oil and energy market.

So, let’s get right to it.

Here are the top two situations I’ll be keeping an eye on this week…

1. Oil Demand Analysis

The volatility in the market over the last week has prompted me to reexamine the actual demand figures emerging for global crude oil usage.

Last week, Chicken Little was screaming that The Sky is Falling and the surety of a new Great Recession following the bond yield inversion. I wrote about this topic on Friday, and you can read it right here.

However, the global crude oil demand figures are showing less recessionary concerns than pundits are suggesting, and a blind panic is probably not the best way to be dealing with current market movements.

The Market is DRUNK (and It Could Cost You Your Savings)

We all know how frat parties go – one binge follows another, and before long, you’re stumbling around with a headache and have to clean up the mess you made the night before. That’s exactly what the market has been doing as it relentlessly binges on more and more debt. Now, the debt problem has become so big that it’s set us on the road for disaster. The market’s drunken behavior is just one of the ways that the entire system itself is rigged to fail, and by Labor Day, you could lose more than half of your money because of it.

2. Winter is Coming

Natural gas and crude oil demand fluctuates according to season. The summer season for oil and gasoline tends to be higher as people depart on road trips and vacations. In natural gas, however, it’s the winter season that sparks more demand, as we hunker down with the heat on.

The winter season is on its way, and this week, I’ll be analyzing the prospects for an increase in U.S. natural gas needs as we move into this year’s winter buying season.
