Government Energy Plan Political Pandering / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhenever Congress puts together a bill attempting to find a solution to some sort of real or imagined problem, my immediate thought is that the bill do one of four things:

  • It will worsen the problem at hand
  • It will do nothing to solve the problem but instead create a new problem somewhere else
  • It will worsen the original problem and create new problems
  • In the very best case it will do nothing at all

Soaring Gasoline, Diesel, and Crude Oil Prices / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGasoline, usually taken for granted, is weighing heavily on consumer sentiment today. In the States, the AAA just reported that retail gas soared to an average of $3.65 per gallon nationwide! This all-time record high is motivating Americans to drive less, drive slower, and migrate to more efficient cars to save fuel.

As a student of the markets, I find gasoline fascinating. The impact of its pricing creates far-reaching ripples throughout the entire economy. And since transportation is such a basic necessity of life, everyone monitors gas prices on a regular basis. It is fun to watch and analyze such a widely-followed market.

UltraShort Crude Oil & Gas ETF on the Move / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Paulenoff

As of this moment, the Jan-Feb lows at 34.69 and 35.52 represent a potentially major double-bottom in the DUG that has the power to thrust prices towards the 46.00-47.00 resistance (breakout zone). Initial resistance hovers along the declining 200 DMA, now at 43.33. Any weakness from current levels must hold 40.00 to preserve today's near-term upside breakout at 41.20/50.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile energy demand may be tempered by a slowdown in global economic growth, longer term growing energy demands and supply constraints will continue to present incredible challenges. Much more capital will need to be allocated to the sector to address supply issues, which should create opportunities for investors.

Energy Sector Stunning Demand and Production Trends & Developments / Commodities / Energy Resources

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile we did not see triple digit crude oil prices in the futures market last year we remain optimistic the energy sector will perform well in 2008. Growing global energy demands will continue to present challenges to the market.

Several graphics we ran across last month illustrate the major issues in the energy sector. The chart at right from an article in the Financial Times illustrates that the use of fossil fuels has correlated very closely with economic growth over the last 185 years.

Energy Stocks Undervalued as Crude Oil Targets Beyond $100 During 2008 / Companies / Energy Resources

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs energy cheap or dear? Oil prices cut above the once-unthinkable level of $100 a barrel for the first time ever this week. One of the biggest questions as we move into 2008 is what kind of impact that will have on the wider markets and the US economy.

Since oil bottomed in the late 1990s, both market and economy have survived successive milestones in its rise, despite forecasts of disaster every time a new one was reached. Last year, however, crude prices reached new territory by breaking past their '70s highs in inflation-adjusted terms. At the same time, the collapse of the US housing industry and mortgage market began to stoke US recession worries in earnest.

Commonly taken for granted in today's society, a century ago the electrification of modern lighting and home and industrial activities was cutting edge technology. Other than those brief periods when an ice storm or summer thundershower disrupts service, few tend to remember how extensive and relatively recent the changes in our lives that electricity has provided.

Afghanistan - A Crude Oil War Of Revenge / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Mike_Whitney

The United States is on its way to losing the war in Afghanistan. The eventual defeat will be political not military. Public sentiment is shifting in Europe. The people have had enough. They want to get out. When European troops withdrawal from Afghanistan; NATO will gradually unravel and the Transatlantic Alliance will collapse. That will be a disaster for America. The US will again be isolated by two great oceans. But not by choice. America's days as an empire will be over.

Long-term Energy Bull Prepared to Ride out Short-term Weakness / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOK, I'll admit it. I've been basically long-term bullish on energy since I came into this business in the mid-1980s.

Long term, of course, I've been spot on. My first ever article recommending actual stocks was entitled “There's Still Money to Be Made in Oil,” and it featured the very un-utility like FREEPORT-MCMORAN, a diversified energy and minerals producer then trading under the symbol FTX. That company's myriad spinoffs and mergers have multiplied the value of a January 1987 investment many times.

US Electricity Generation Crisis Building / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOil prices are rapidly approaching $100 a barrel. Coal is vilified as the cause of global warming, and a big tax imposition is only a matter of time. Natural gas is several times its levels earlier in the decade, despite a sector depression that seems to continue to worsen.

New nuclear plants are a decade away at best. Wind and solar plants run at low capacity rates even under the best of circumstances. And geothermal is only available in a few regions.

Final Quarter Energy Trends for Uranium and Green Energy / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe final quarter of the year is always a crucial period for the energy markets. The quarter marks both the beginning of the winter heating season and a time when refiners look to rebuild their crude oil inventories. Often, trends that emerge during the quarter carry through into the new year.

With crude oil prices hovering above $80 per barrel and natural gas recovering from its midsummer lows, the fourth quarter of 2007 promises to be even more pivotal for the energy patch than normal. In this week's issue, let's take a look at two trends I'll be watching carefully as we head into the final weeks of 2007.

Creating NEW Wealth - Migrating to New Energy Paradigms Part 6 / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Brian_Bloom

By now, with the markets causing heart palpitations, readers should be receptive to what this author has been attempting to communicate. The preceding articles in this series were intended to enable readers to gain a clearer understanding of the real (as opposed to perceived) problems being faced by humanity. For ease of reference they are summarised in Appendix 1 hereto. We can now turn our attention to developing a plan to solve these problems in the shortest possible time and at the lowest possible cost.

Summary and Conclusions

This concluding article articulates a Vision which will allow for most of the defined problems to be addressed. As a side effect, the USA can once again aspire to become an export oriented country operating at a surplus. Debt levels can begin to shrink.

2008 – 2012: A Critically Important Period - Migrating to New Energy Paradigms Part 4 / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Brian_Bloom

Preface - The benchmark against which I have been measuring the appropriateness of various alternative energies has been: “Does this particular technology offer the potential to represent a sensible replacement for oil across the planet within a decade? Alternatively: Can it replace coal within 25 years?” 

I am sensitive to the possibility that some readers may have been irritated by my apparently cavalier predisposition to dismiss various alternative energies which they may be favouring. In this context, let me clarify my position: I dismiss nothing out of hand. There is no insurmountable shortcoming of, for example, solar power or wind power. We should continue to embrace both. However, neither of these can (yet) generate sufficient energy to replace that generated by burning approximately 240 million equivalent barrels of oil a day; and neither will be capable of achieving this objective within either of the two deadlines.   The issue is “time” as this article will demonstrate. We do not have the luxury of time. We also do not have the luxury of making any serious strategic mistakes.

Migrating to new Energy Paradigms Part 3 - Market Needs: Real vs. Perceived / Commodities / Energy Resources

By: Brian_Bloom

This article focuses on the difference between real market needs and perceived market needs. When migrating from our fossil fuel energy paradigm we should avoid embracing new energy paradigm/s which are incapable of addressing real needs.

Many aspirant alternative energy technologies seek to address the perceived problem that our top priority is to reduce CO 2 emissions. In previous articles relating to Global Warming I have tried to demonstrate (and will try again later in this article to demonstrate) that rising CO 2 levels in our atmosphere are not the real problem. Our sun is ultimately causing global warming, which warming is being exacerbated by Greenhouse Gases. There is nothing we can do about this other than gird our loins. Given that Climate Change occurs cyclically, we need to prepare for the coming cycle of Global Cooling.
