What we have here is the classic balance of supply and demand. Here, the levels of investment and investor interest in oil and natural gas companies follow a simple logic.

When supply exceeds demand, investors lose interest and prices fall. On the other hand, when demand outgrows supply, investors go back in, raising prices.

And that leads us to the final step needed for oil prices to recover...

Here's the Real Reason Oil and Stocks Are Moving Together

For a long time there wasn't much of a connection between oil and stocks, and there was even an inverse relationship between them.

But since the turn of the century, and especially over the past two years, they've begun to move in lockstep, diving and rising together.
