Understanding Crude Oil. A model for dissecting crude oil

Here is the model we used last year to dissect the projected price behavior of oil. This was a fundamentals driven model that examined supply and demand gap, future supply sources and shocks, core demand growth drivers and relative value effects. The same approach was used later this year in building our fundamentals driven model for gold price forecast.

Our summarized outlook was simple. Oil demand growth is likely to remain stunted given high prices and a number of major issues structurally which will remove any impetus for an oil price shock similar to the one that we witnessed in 2008. With additional supply coming back to the market from Iraq and Libya, Europe struggling with the fallout of the PIGS crisis and the slowdown in China the demand situation was not likely to be rosy.

    You’re right, investing in stock can make you a lot of money if you’re caufrel. I’ll walk you through how to do it.1. First, choose your stock. I suggest you go online and look up some stocks. Find a few that sound promising, then make sure you research them thoroughly. (I’ve got a hunch that all kinds of green technology is going to blow up in the next few years, so I’d start there.)2. Find a stockbroker. Your bank might operate as your stockbroker, or you could look up a stockbroking company.3. Tell your stockbroker what stock you want to buy. He/she may give you some advice; you should take that advice into consideration. Once you’re absolutely sure you want to buy that stock, tell him/her. Then you’ve bought stock.You can be any age to buy stock. Also, a mutual fund is where a lot of people pool in their money to invest.
