Cant' stay away.. /CL Close up

My rules kept me out of doing anything which is fine. That is the reason I have them.

Price reached the green line. If broken, that changes my bullish bias.

Hedge Fund Closures

I found it interesting that on the back of Pierre Andurand finally admitting defeat on his bullish bet we now see Andy Hall closing down his main fund. From a speculative standpoint, one could suggest that both Andurand and Hall received the nod from OPEC that they would cut production whilst the hedgies took speculative long positions and talked up the price of crude.

The fact that so many producers continued hedging relentlessly any time WTI peaked it's head above the $50, coupled with the fact many saw past the Saudis facade of cutting oil exports but increasing refined exports proved a bigger obstacle than they realised. I think the closure of Hall's fund may say something about OPEC's stature...perhaps Hall realised they are no longer the dominant force in these markets and his influence/inclusion within that circle no longer holds the same edge.

Why OPEC's Success Hinges on a Change of Seasons

In this good Bloomberg article, there is a paragraph which to me is utterly puzzling:


Quoting 
2. Shouldn’t OPEC’s cuts have eliminated the glut already?

OPEC and allies including Russia agreed to curb output by as much as 1.8 million barrels a day for six months starting in January. Initial confidence from Saudi Arabia -- OPEC’s de-facto leader -- that this would do the job quickly turned into the realization that a longer reduction was required. The extension was deemed necessary because a rally in the price of oil revived investment in the U.S. shale industry, causing production there to boom again.


So: we all know that OPEC's cuts aim to boost oil price. But if the oil price boost revives "investment in the U.S. shale industry, causing production there to boom again", this is a catch-22.

Personally I've seen this as a vicious circle since Nov-2014. Am I being too simplistic, or is this at the very heart of OPEC's problem?

No, I don't think you're being too simplistic. That is a significant part of the OPEC conundrum. Their attempts to cut ultimately put the market into backwardation (supposed oversupply). The US has moved itself into a quasi-swing producer position, which lessens the affect of what OPEC can do. Worth noting the OPEC members and supporters (Russia) are also factor here as they are notorious for cheating. Nevertheless, you are correct in that the US plays a much bigger role in this than they did prior to, say, 2005.
