Make This Oil Move Immediately
From the Editor: In yesterday's members-only message, you got a rare look at Kent's track record and why he averages 55% on every recommendation. Today, Kent recommends a short-term move, based on the latest developments in Syria...
Damascus may have dodged a bullet (or a cruise missile), but nothing else has changed very much. Not in terms of risk.
That explains why the "Syrian Premium" remains. It may be slightly reduced, as you'll see. But it is likely to stay with us even after the threat of a military solution has been averted.
At least for now...

Oil Forecast: The "Syrian Premium" Is Not Temporary
By an apparent agreement to place its chemical weapons under international control, Syria seems to have dodged an imminent American military attack.
Yet even as the world takes a step back from the brink, three critical questions still remain:
1. Will Syrian President Bashar Assad hand over all of his chemical weapons?
2. Will the proposed international control mechanisms satisfy Washington?
3. Will the final result contained in the U.N. report on the chemical weapons use outside of Damascus alter the outcome?
Of course, until the latest news hit, one result had seemed certain: The global oil market was bracing for higher prices. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) closed at a 28-month high on Friday, while Brent crossed the $116 a barrel level.
Following the agreement, that trend has reversed, sending oil prices in both New York and London lower.
But has this crisis really been defused?
Just look at oil prices, and where they're undoubtedly headed...... Read More...

How Syria Affects Oil Prices Today
As U.S. military personnel prepare for possible action against Syria, Brent oil prices are hovering near an 18-month high.
On Thursday, Brent oil prices retreated slightly, but remained elevated, after starting the day above $116 a barrel. Prices for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) also retreated by a little more than 1%, closing the day at $108.80.
Brent prices have climbed steadily following escalations across Egypt and the ousting of President Mohamed Morsi.
Meanwhile, in the United States, improved infrastructure and greater network access have fueled WTI prices to near par with Brent this month.
But Brent prices have spiked this week following news that the West may intervene in Syria, where a chemical attack was allegedly launched against civilians.
Despite warnings from Russia and China, it remains unclear whether the United States will intervene. However, any action is likely to set off a chain reaction across the Middle East and could affect trade within the region, especially on oil shipments.
Here are the details on how Syria affects oil prices, what that means for you - and how to profit.Read More...
