This item alone will probably send oil higher again last week--not because we have even the remotest impact on markets(!)...but because of the near-inevitable karmic blowback against smug posts like this.
That said, we can't help but note that a little than three weeks ago (November 7th, to be precise), CNBC put two barrels of oil on its set in an epic act of inviting the top-tick. Crude prices fell back immediately after that memorable day...then eked out new highs before rolling over a little more decisively in the last week and a half.
We don't know where oil prices will go from here, but we do find this sort of thing endlessly entertaining.
