My Oil Price Forecast Shows Why Crude Supplies and Imports Are Rising

oil price forecast

U.S. crude inventories are sitting at record highs of around 2.05 billion barrels right now.

That's not a surprise. After all, there's a lingering global crude glut.

But what's surprising - at first glance - are U.S. crude imports. They're up by close to 1 million barrels per day. The country took in 8.64 million barrels per day in the week ending March 25, compared to just 7.69 million over the same period a year ago. 

Therein lies what appears to be a paradox: Why on Earth would we import more oil when we may be forced to fill swimming pools with it soon?

The answer is very simple, and it becomes clear when you see my oil price targets...

How to Profit from the "Great Oil Turnaround" of 2016

oil

We've been able to make energy profits during the oil bear because I'm tracking opportunities outside of petroleum. One of my favorite alternative "oil-killer" energy plays, for instance, is up 45% since I recommended it. The global energy balance is simply shifting to favor these alternative energy sources.

But oil is still vitally important, and I'm pleased to report that it's going to be a bigger source of profits moving forward...

You see, towards the end of February, we saw signs that oil is about to turn the corner, with oil prices shooting up 8.5% in a single week.

To prepare for this trend, I've put together a plan for us to profit.

I'm tracking several companies across four different categories, but this one strategy will get you perfectly positioned to capture the biggest possible profits from the coming end of oil's decline.

In a moment, you'll see exactly how this plan will work.
