Oil prices rose globally on a premature expectation of an economic recovery. Governments and investors saw a few indications that the bottom may have been reached and interpreted this to mean a recovery will begin in the next twelve months. That emphatically will not happen. When the global economy looses more than $50 trillion in value, there will not be a return to investment and spending any time soon. Now the market as a whole seems to be coming to the same conclusion, albiet with more hope than I think justified. Demand for energy will remain low for a very long time, so expect prices to fall again, possibly to $30/bbl. We are in a long term economic depression that will take in excess of a decade to recover from. Watch the Dow fall dramatically very soon. Actual earnings do not justify the recent run up.
