Oil turned notably higher in late trade despite the fact that the Energy Information Administration reported that crude inventories rose 5.4 million barrels, gasoline inventories rose 3.2 million barrels, and distillates rose 2.9 million barrels.
The U.S. dollar fell and treasuries rose on worse than expected economic data that sent the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P about 1% lower.
Among the big names making news in the market today were Wells Fargo, JPMorgan, Tesla, Toyota, and GM.
“First it was gold, then oil, and now the last shoe is finally dropping – copper.
The final nail in the coffin for all those mega bull commodity predictions was struck last night in Asia. Copper plunged to below $2.50 a pound.
Wouldn’t it be ironic that one of the best times to begin positioning one’s self in these commodities, would be while the many “Peak Oil” books are now in the “Bargain” counter at your local bookstore?
IMHO, gold has already turned, but oil and copper will need a significant period of base-building before a new bull market can be born out of the ashes of all the people burnt to a crisp by the great “failed” commodities boom that came and went with a “ton” of our capital.
While I’m out of the “prediction” game (If I wasn’t, the prediction I would end up in divorce would be very accurate), I do believe oil and copper are within 10% and/or 10 weeks of their ultimate bottom.” - Peter Grandich, http://moneytalks.net/peters-content.html
