Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

The most surprising thing is they can make it for the same price as diesel is now.

"This synthesis of fuel is called the Fischer-Tropsch process and it's been known since 1925.
Audi did not invent it. It's been used before by the countries that could not procure enough fuel by other means (i.e., Nazi Germany during WWII).
Also, it's quite energy inefficient, meaning that you will spend way , more energy than you'll be able to recover when you burn the fuel. "

Bloomberg:- The Oil Rally Looks Doomed, in Five Charts
  1. Long-dated futures are falling
  2. U.S. stockpiles are at an all-time high
  3. Heard of the 'fracklog'?
  4. Saudi Arabia keeps on pumping
  5. Producers are locking in prices now for oil produced later

@SMCJB
I guess point # 5 is self-fulfilling prophesy; and this is true, they do really sell.

Does anyone here have access to ICE IFED (e.g. thru WebICE)?

I have WebICE and I believe I can access most of the Energy Contracts (US NatGas, US Power and all the Oil).
They are also all visible in TT, although I believe getting access to any of the legacy S2F products can be challenging.
What specifically u looking for?

Here's another reason there won't be any big rallies in oil (assuming no supply disruption).


Quoting 
BP bought and stored more than $1.25 billion worth of oil, the equivalent of around 23 million barrels, during the first three months of the year, the company said.

BP said it will gradually unwind the stocks as the market structure narrowed.

"We expect the working capital inventory build to unwind over the rest of the year," a company spokesman said.

Although the volumes are large, they are still below those accumulated by some of the world's biggest trading houses during the first quarter.

Recap of oil analysts predictions.

These Titans of Oil Are Experts at Making Bold Predictions* - Bloomberg Business

Some highlights.


Quoting 
Morgan Stanley analysts, including Adam Longson, forecast on Nov. 10 that Brent would average $106 a barrel in the fourth quarter and $107 for all of 2014, saying "physical markets are strengthening with more improvement ahead, which should eventually lift prices.''


Quoting 
Harold Hamm, the billionaire founder of Continental Resources, cashed out his company's oil-crash hedges in October—betting big on a rebound.

Oops


Quoting 
"You're going to see $85 to $90 oil" in the next 3-6 months, said John Catsimatidis, Red Apple Group Chairman, on Feb. 17.
