The Good Oil

The site owner is a 28 year veteran of  the Futures industry. The last 15yrs primarily in the commodity space. He has worked in Australia and Singapore for Tier one Investment banks and non-Bank FCM’s and having recently left the industry is now trading on his own account.  The Good Oil is a reincarnation . It is a tweaked version of a commentary piece the site owner used to produce when still on the sell side. It  is the owners proprietary thoughts, insights and markets commentary based on that  experience but may also include the odd cheeky social commentary. The content  should be in no way be  considered as a  recommendation or advice and users should consider their own circumstances in making investment decisions. Any feedback good or bad on each post is welcomed.
