The oil carry trade has been a big driver of the crude market in the last three years. Once in a while, that carry trade can influence the whole market, without regard for anything else -- and I believe we're entering that moment. That means that the rally in oil, as much as it looks like it needs to be sold, will probably show some incredible and unexpected strength, and the related stocks will be a good place to be. Commodities are not like stocks, I am so fond of saying, and oil is an even more peculiar commodity than most. All commodities price based on the futures markets, different from other asset markets.

I understand there is a lot of cargo space being added to the world fleet so I assume these are a bit risky right now? I don’t know where I heard or read about tonnage being added. It probably was on this blog somewhere but it stuck in my brain. That index looks great though from a trader’s perspective. That is probably why it swings so wild is because no one can trade it leftback Says: August 25th, 2009 at 12:10 pm The two shippers mentioned obviously trade with the NAZZ, and benefit from the “flight to ... market research, surveys and trends
Ruble Extends Longest Rally Since 2007 on Oil, Carry-Trade Lure
The ruble climbed to a four-month high against the dollar, headed for its longest run of weekly gains in almost two years, as surging oil prices and higher interest rates lured investors to Russia. The ruble jumped to as strong as 31.0887 per dollar today, the most since Jan. 12, and gained 3.2 percent in the week, its sixth weekly advance and the longest rally since September 2007.

The Oil Drum | DrumBeat: February 20, 2009
How much oil does the United States import each year? How costly would a cap on carbon dioxide emissions be? How quickly did gasoline demand fall in 2008? These questions lie at the heart of the country's urgent debates over alternative energy, and the answers are being shaped by statistics that come almost exclusively from the Energy Information Administration. Long considered "the gold standard" of energy information, the numbers from EIA, which is run by the Department of Energy, are regularly cited by the media and politicians alike. Pumping gasoline. And yet today, with energy at the top of the Obama ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Enbridge Credit Risk Falls as U.S. Pipeline Boosts Cashflow: Canada Credit

Mysterious Profit - 'Peso events' drive returns to the carry trade
Economic theory has been predicting the collapse of the carry trade for some time now, but the widespread currency-based strategy continues to pad balance sheets with profit. The carry trade works by borrowing money in low interest rate currencies and then lending it in high interest rate ones. Investors pocket the difference in interest rates as profit. Economic theory says the two exchange rates should adjust as more people exploit the interest rate differential, eliminating the profit potential. But this is not the case and the carry trade remains a successful staple for hedge funds and other investors. It sounds like a ...

Could The Dollar Carry Trade End Abruptly And In Tears? | LinkedIn ...
The dollar carry trade remains in vogue for as long as the dollar keeps depreciating in value and interest rates remain low. What happens when the dollar appreciates? Recently, as the US Dollar Index has improved, money has swiftly come out of the risk trade safe havens -- gold and commodities -- to which it ran to protect against a further dollar decline. As an example, gold fell more than 5%, when the dollar index improved by 1.5% on a single day! Given the dollar's inverse correlation with nearly all asset classes, there are many triggers for the demise of the dollar carry trade. For example, a sustained pullback in ...
