  • 09/28/2009 -- Horsnell: US policy will shift oil markets
    Commodities market regulation in the US seems to be moving towards higher capital requirements and bureaucratization with relatively little impact on prices in the long run, said Paul Horsnell, managing director and head of commodities research at Barclays Capital in London. However, he warned, “Expect the center of gravity of world oil trading to move further away from US markets.”
  • 09/21/2009 -- Deloitte: Trade problems loom
    Position limits being considered by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission to eliminate “excessive” market speculation could create problems for companies trading energy commodities, said John England, managing partner for energy in Deloitte & Touche LLP’s markets consulting practice.
  • 09/14/2009 -- Surprise rally in gas prices
    A four-session natural gas rally from a 7-year low culminated with a 15% jump past $3/MMbtu Sept. 10—the largest 1-day gain in almost 5 years in the New York market.
  • 09/08/2009 -- Deutsche Bank closing exchange traded note
    Citing new limitations on the New York Mercantile Exchange, Deutsche Bank AG said in early September it would close and redeem its popular $425 million PowerShares DB Crude Oil Double Long Exchange Traded Note (DXO)—one of the largest leveraged commodity products in the US.
  • 08/31/2009 -- Crude finds 'comfortable' price range
    The “most comfortable” range for crude prices would be $65-75/bbl—“$10/bbl below the minimum of what is the desired price in broad terms for the key producers” within the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, said Paul Horsnell, a managing director and head of commodities research at Barclays Capital in London.
  • 08/17/2009 -- A century of speculation
    For more than 100 years, US legislators have passed laws to reduce price volatility and prevent manipulation of commodity markets. So why should today’s “new wave of regulation” prove any better than those in the past? asks Adam Sieminski, chief energy economist, Deutsche Bank, Washington, DC.
  • 08/10/2009 -- EIA: US gas storage tops 3 tcf
    The US Energy Information Administration reported natural gas in underground storage topped 3 tcf with a 66 bcf injection in the week ended July 31.
  • 08/03/2009 -- KBC: Index funds lift oil prices
    A growing market force is floating crude prices above levels justified by the simple fundamentals of supply and demand, said analysts at KBC Market Services, a division of KBC Process Technology Ltd. in Surrey, UK.
  • 07/27/2009 -- A $60-70/bbl price band
    Strong rallies in both equity and commodity markets in late July pushed front-month crude contracts above $68/bbl in New York and $70/bbl in London just 2 weeks after the price dipped below $60/bbl in a more pessimistic market.
  • 07/20/2009 -- Gas market seeks sign
    Four consecutive weeks of smaller-than-expected injections of natural gas into US storage triggered a 12% price jump for the front-month contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange in mid-July in what some hoped might be the first sign that well shut-ins and reduced drilling may be decreasing supply.
