  • Hedge funds
  • Dividend Strategies
  • Long oil, gold, raw food

    Long oil? Cullen I remember you stating that commodity prices were the biggest beneficiary of QE2 and since QE3 don’t look probably at this point (not to mention EM slowdown) I can’t believe oil is on this list. Do you agree with this one?

    I’ve been pretty vocal about the risks in all commodities at this point….Nothing will be spared in a global slowdown except maybe gold prices….

    long oil…? Rosie is completely out of his mind. If anything he is a good contrarian indicator.
    Shorting oil seems to me a good strategy at this point.
    A look at a long term oil chart tell me that oil is going below $50 very soon.

    “Nothing will be spared in a global slowdown except maybe gold prices….”

    yeah, gold seems to be resisting decline. why is that? low interest rates?

  • Burwell

    Rosenberg was right in 2008 and he conducts great research. He missed the power of QE II but his views might evenutally be right if and when the massive stimulas is removed.

    Long oil isn’t about QE2, it’s largely political. An economic slowdown could correlate with ME unrest, especially given the recent situation in Israel. Missiles could really fly easily by September

    TPC,

    Please see this article re the shadow banking system. This is exactly what I have said the Fed. is doing, and is exactly what they should be doing.

    ryan is right….increasing ME tension(or worse) holds oil up.

    gold might only dip enough for a buying oppurtunity, then with more fed easing/supplementing its off to the races.
