Oil Soars: These Energy Areas Are Next

As spot crude oil has pushed through the $100 level, the upside is somewhat limited. Oil is up over 30% in the last six weeks and with the global economy still weak, it is hard to imagine it will push much higher. Investors are searching frantically for the next big energy area. There are some obvious places that money should start to flow.



Natural gas continues to be the obvious answer to some easy money upside. The United States Natural Gas Fund, LP (NYSEARCA:UNG)  is trading at…

The inverse relationship between the U.S. Dollar Index and the major stock market indexes is very well intact. Traders can look at an overnight chart of the U.S. Dollar Index futures and simply see when the U.S. Dollar Index made a top around 3:00 am EST the S&P 500 Index futures made a low.
