By Faisal Laljee

By Faisal Laljee

Over the last week or so, ever since oil topped the $140 mark consistently, I have been tempted to recommend a short position on oil. Today, after two days of oil selling off, I am still in a conundrum. Lets review why oil is where it is: 1) Demand story is still very much... »
