Why the WTI Crude Oil Price Is Climbing Today

wti crude oil price

The WTI crude oil price rallied higher today as investors remain hopeful ahead of next month's output freeze meeting.

But one OPEC country refuses to take part in next month's summit.

And according to Moors, this country now singlehandedly controls the future of oil prices...

Here's What Has London's Wealthiest Oil Kingpins So Fired Up

oil prices

The City of London is hands-down the most important energy financing command center on Earth. More money for oil and gas projects is raised within a three-mile radius of Liverpool Street station than anywhere else in the world.

Naturally, this part of town is packed to the rafters with some of energy's most influential and important "money men" and women.

When I was at the Palace of Westminster for a closed-door energy briefing at the House of Lords, these financiers were absolutely electrified by one recent development.

It won't be long before these players are going to make a lot of money on this, and we'll have our chance, too...

Why the U.S. Crude Oil Price Soared After the Fed's Decision

us crude oil price

Fed Chair Janet Yellen's seemingly harmless interest rate decision is sending the U.S. crude oil price soaring.

Crude oil prices always shoot higher when the Federal Reserve leaves rates unchanged.

But there are two other fundamental factors that will lift oil prices over the long term...

A Single Country Now Controls the Future of Oil Prices

oil prices

After a hefty rise of 46.9% for the month through close last Friday, WTI crude fell for two consecutive sessions to start the week.

As always, pundits with no real experience in the industry will blame the "glut" - but excess supply on its own is not responsible for today's oil conundrum.

Instead, the key factor in how people regard the market and anticipate oil prices today is guaranteed excess supply.

And the actions of a single country will now decide whether that guarantee will remain...

Why the WTI Crude Oil Price Is Down Today

Iran is OPEC's black sheep, and the WTI crude oil price isn't responding well to its revolt.

Prices fell after Iran stated it wouldn't join the effort to freeze production and raise prices.

But there are two consequences of this low price climate that will offer a number of long-term opportunities...

What the World's Leading Energy Sector Insiders Fear Most

oil prices

There's a lot of conversation about the energy sector's accelerating debt crisis. The bottom line is simply this.

Regardless of where the crude oil price moves from here, there is little likelihood that any rise in the level will be large (or happen soon) enough to save most companies mired in a vicious cycle of ever more debt.

But don't worry, because you'll be prepared. These five charts will help you put the situation into perspective and even prepare for the fallout...

Three Energy Sector Shifts That Emerged from the Dungeons of Windsor

Kent-Moors-London-II

Every March at Windsor Castle, leading global energy figures come together for the Windsor Energy Consultations.

Now, I'm not allowed to say who said what at the meeting this year. But that same rule also makes everyone be very frank in their discussions of energy.

This led to some very revealing discussions... and to agreement on the three most important shifts changing the energy sector right now.

And those, I can share with you...

Why WTI Crude Oil Prices Are Down Today

The world's largest oil producers are getting cold feet, and West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil prices are feeling it.

Prices are falling on news that a meeting among OPEC and non-OPEC producers is unlikely to happen.

But that doesn't mean you can't profit from oil's 2016 turnaround...

Oil Prices Will More Than Double by 2017

Oil prices have gone through one of the worst oil crashes in modern history.

But we believe oil prices will more than double their current value by 2017.

Watch this video to find out what's going to fuel this historic rebound in oil prices...

Why the WTI Crude Oil Price Today Hit a 2016 High

wti crude oil price

After one of the most volatile starts to a year ever, the WTI crude oil price seems to have finally stabilized.

Oil prices today were bolstered by statements from the UAE energy minister and the declining U.S. rig count.

And there are three ways to profit from oil's long-term rebound in 2016...

The Oil Sector's "Other Shoe" Just Dropped

The "other shoe" is dropping for the oil sector, and it's going to affect each and every one of us.

This ripple effect will extend to much more than just oil and gas.

And it looms as an ongoing concern, one that is likely to have a longer-lasting effect than the price of oil itself - unless, that is, there is a reversal of trajectory.

Why the WTI Crude Oil Price Is Up Today

The WTI crude oil price saw its second straight session of gains today after several producers announced production cuts across Oklahoma and Texas.

Today's gains mark the beginning of a sustained long-term rise in prices.

And there are four types of oil stocks that will offer nice returns in the meantime...

Why Oil Prices and Stock Markets Have Been Dancing in Lockstep

oil prices

Common sense suggests that some signals would affect both oil prices and the stock markets.

But that's not what we've been seeing lately. The two have instead been moving in almost lockstep connection. When one moves, so does the other, no matter the reason.

It seems common sense isn't in charge of the markets any more. Here's why...

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.

While they later fell a bit, showing that volatility is still the name of the game, make no mistake...

A sustained rise in oil prices is coming.

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.

But first, here's what's changed to allow for this turnaround in oil prices...
