  1. Trading the stock market is by far one of the easiest ways to create serious wealth and is accessible to anyone no matter where you are in the world. When you learn to trade the stock market, you are able to directly benefit from massive amounts of money it makes available to you everyday.

    Most people who are interested in learning how to become profitable traders need only spend a few minutes online before reading such phrases as "plan your trade; trade your plan" and "keep your losses to a minimum." For new traders, these tidbits of information can seem more like a distraction than any actionable advice. New traders often just want to know how to set up their charts so they can hurry up and make money.

    To be successful in trading, however, one needs to understand the importance of and adhere to a set of rules that have guided all types of traders, with a variety of trading account sizes. Each rule alone is important, but when they work together the effects are strong. Trading with these rules can greatly increase the odds of succeeding in the markets.


    Rule No.1: Always Use a Trading Plan

    Rule No.2: Treat Trading Like a Business

    Rule No.3: Use Technology to Your Advantage

    Rule No.4: Protect Your Trading Capital

    Rule No.5: Become a Student of the Markets

    Rule No.6: Risk Only What You Can Afford to Lose

    Rule No.7: Develop a Trading Methodology Based on Facts

    Rule No.8: Always Use a Stop Loss

    Rule No.9: Know When to Stop Trading

    Rule No.10: Keep Trading in Perspective

    Understanding the importance of each or these trading rules, and how they work together, can help traders establish a viable trading business. Trading is hard work, and traders who have the discipline and patience to follow these rules can increase their odds of success in a very competitive arena.

  3. It seems that the oil price is manipulated. Futures trading has taken two stances on forecasting oil prices and they seem to sober up short term price rallying. This to a lesser extent dampens the blow on the market each time it plummets. The categories as below are 1) Commercial: this being the norm for futures trading as the price will be fixed over a few years.


    The second position 2) Non Commercial is aimed at identifying market changes as influenced by lucrative hedge funds in the short term. These hedge funds were the primary reason for the shale oil boom initially causing large oil producing nations such as Saudi Arabia to crank up production. So keeping an eye on high value investments over the short term in this area acts as an indicator of fracking activity.


    In addition to this you also have to consider existing crude stock availability, draw down and procurement activity. Regional tension and geopolitics adversely effect oil prices and as such there is a tendency to exaggerate market reaction. It's analogous to flying a jet fighter aircraft with one hand on the ejection handle.

  4. Then I would say no. Daily oil production world wide is around 80 million barrels. At $50 per barrel this is a cash flow of 4 billion dollars per day. With economic activity this large it is hard to conceive of an individual or company that has enough money to manipulate the price of oil in any significant way. Only a few countries in the world have sufficient quantities of money to have an impact on the price of oil and they have other things to do with their money.

  5. Well it depends what you mean by "FABRICATED". I am not sure what “Fabricated” means in this question regarding oil prices. If it means the price of oil is being manipulated then the answer is definitely yes. One of the largest oil producing countries, Saudi Arabia, is intentionally pumping as much oil as it can with the expressed intention of destroying the American oil fracking production companies. Fracking in America produces oil at a minimum price around $50 per barrel. So long as the world price stays below that it is not profitable to drill more wells using fracking and horizontal drilling in America.

  6. If you follow market news, you will notice that there is oversupply right now in the oil market, thanks to Iran. Even though countries like Nigeria, Canada etc. are on their lowest point of supply now. So that may be the cause of the low oil price right now. However, the oil market may not be as transparent as we thought it is. My reasons are, After Canadian fires, falling Fracking rig counts & bankruptcies, Nigerian rebel attacks on oil infrastructure, and every other supply disruption, plus robustly higher global demand, the market remains over supplied. This is making me think that there may be lots of politics and non-transparency going on in the oil market.
