,OIL AT US$200 A BARREL? if you spend any time on Twitter, you know that oil and energy stocks have some very enthusiastic supporters, most of whom predict oil will rise to US$200 (RM882) a barrel. In fact, call options with a US$200 strike price have traded rather briskly in recent weeks.

WEST Intermediate crude oil futures fell below US$102 (RM450) a barrel Wednesday, which represents a 22% drop over the past two weeks and meeting the technical definition of a bear market.

It certainly doesn’t feel like a bear market, especially since crude is still up about 40% this year.

And if you spend any time on Twitter, you know that oil and energy stocks have some very enthusiastic supporters, most of whom predict oil will rise to US$200 (RM882) a barrel.

In fact, call options with a US$200 strike price have traded rather briskly in recent weeks.

Most of the bull case in oil revolves around the twin theses of government incompetence and socially responsible, or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing, both of which are restricting drilling and raising the cost of capital for oil producers, thereby reducing supply.

Now, the government is mulling a petrol tax holiday and even issuing petrol rebate cards, both of which represent a direct subsidy of demand.

Every first-year economic student knows that if you increase the demand of a thing and reduce the supply of that thing, you are likely to increase the price of said thing.

But that doesn’t explain the recent downturn in oil, and the oil bulls make no attempts at doing so.

So, what is the decline in oil prices all about? My guess is that it’s a reflection of the higher odds of a recession and the resulting demand destruction.

Oil tumbled as much as 8.24% on Wednesday, the most since early March, as Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell said a recession is possible and calling a soft landing “very challenging.”

The drop in oil prices was accompanied by a big drop in bond yields. If the price of oil falls, so will inflation rates, as oil is a primary driver of inflation.

And if that happens, the Fed won’t have to raise interest rates as much, resulting in lower bond yields.

Stocks rallied as well, and the dollar weakened.

The price of oil is driving all markets and the economy at the moment, and if oil prices go down, everything will get better.

It is likely that sentiment was getting a bit too hot in the energy markets.

After all, the S&P 500 integrated oil and gas index was the top performing sector year-to-date, gaining almost 40% through Tuesday, compared with a 21% drop in the S&P 500.

The question now is where does oil go from here?

Does it return to an equilibrium level of US$80 (RM353) a barrel, or does it rocket to US$200, like the macro doom crowd thinks?

To be sure, the oil market is prone to wide swings.

      不明原因儿童严重急性肝炎的病因和发病机制尚在研究中。目前WHO认为,尽管将腺病毒感染作为病因的假说有一定合理性,但腺病毒通常引起低龄儿童轻度、自限性的消化道或呼吸道感染,不能完全解释该病一些较严重的临床表现,故该病与腺病毒的关联需进一步明确。大部分患儿未接种过新冠病毒疫苗,不支持该病与新冠病毒疫苗副作用有关的假说。其他致病因素尚在探索中,例如新冠肺炎流行期间,腺病毒流行水平较低致儿童易感性增加;出现新型腺病毒;腺病毒合并新冠病毒感染;新冠病毒感染并发症导致超级抗原介导的免疫细胞活化,从而引起儿童多系统炎症综合征等。对其他病原体的探索也在进行中,非感染性因素也需进一步排除。想交读友
