I would love to think that a lot of analysis is put into determining stock and commodity values, but often times it's just psychosomatic: offer some good news, and prices go skyward. Fox News is reporting that oil prices have rallied due to positive news about the economy. Well, that's always good to hear. But it's a little frustrating too. I mean, if the media only reported positive news, would the market never drop? No, of course that. The market is not 100% divorced from reality. Something would cause a drop in commodity prices eventually, or likewise, a spike in prices. –Stephen Payne, Editor, Oil and Gas Investor This Week; www.OilandGasInvestor.com; spayne@hartenergy.com
