Is The Rise In Oil Portending The End Of The Current Business Cycle

As oil continues to rise for a number of reasons there is one factor that should be considered and that is the possible end of the current business cycle. Marc Chandler points out that typically when oil rises, especially when we are so stretched in the current business cycle, it typically leads to the end of the cycle. We discuss where central banks and interest rates stand around the world as well as where investors can be the most protected.

    I was here in Jan pounding the table to buy CAN oil/gas stocks. Now up 20-80% .
    I was here 3-4 yrs ago saying BUY the stock market!!. I argued with the very arrogant Bob Moriarty gold bug absolute FOOL broken clock. Lost people a Sh#t ton of money in his imaginary gold bull market. Still a pile of smoking dung. Now when the bond market dies in the next few the market will sky rocket. Then we are in for big trouble. Buy tuna. Golds a joke Bobbo. The money pumping went in to productive assets the last many years.

    Mueller may have a conflict — and it leads directly to a Russian oligarch

    Special counsel Robert Mueller has withstood relentless political attacks, many distorting his record of distinguished government service.

    But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.

    In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.

    Yes, that’s the same Deripaska who has surfaced in Mueller’s current investigation and who was recently sanctioned by the Trump administration.

    The Levinson mission is confirmed by more than a dozen participants inside and outside the FBI, including Deripaska, his lawyer, the Levinson family and a retired agent who supervised the case. Mueller was kept apprised of the operation, officials told me.

    Some aspects of Deripaska’s help were chronicled in a 2016 book by reporter Barry Meier, but sources provide extensive new information about his role.

    They said FBI agents courted Deripaska in 2009 in a series of secret hotel meetings in Paris; Vienna; Budapest, Hungary, and Washington. Agents persuaded the aluminum industry magnate to underwrite the mission. The Russian billionaire insisted the operation neither involve nor harm his homeland.

    “We knew he was paying for his team helping us, and that probably ran into the millions,” a U.S. official involved in the operation confirmed.

    One agent who helped court Deripaska was Andrew McCabe, the recently fired FBI deputy director who played a seminal role starting the Trump-Russia case, multiple sources confirmed.
