There’s no question that oil is volatile. It’s up one day and down another, it rises when demand increases and when OPEC + (which means the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries plus Russia) cuts production, and it falls when global growth slows or if OPEC + increases production.
Trying to track the fluctuations is another form of market “noise,” like what’s been happening in the options market lately. I’ve been talking about that a lot, and it’s important for you not to get distracted by it.
Instead, to make money on oil, you need to understand the long-term trend – where oil is going overall, and how it’s going to impact inflation, interest rates, markets, and your money.
And that trend? Up. The price of oil is still going to fluctuate, but it’s going to fluctuate in an elevated range and go higher, fluctuate in a higher range, and then go higher again.
Let me break down why, and then I’ll give you four ways to protect your portfolio from the shockwaves of rising oil demand and make a nice profit along the way.
About the Author
Shah Gilani boasts a financial pedigree unlike any other. He ran his first hedge fund in 1982 from his seat on the floor of the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. When options on the Standard & Poor’s 100 began trading on March 11, 1983, Shah worked in “the pit” as a market maker.
The work he did laid the foundation for what would later become the VIX – to this day one of the most widely used indicators worldwide. After leaving Chicago to run the futures and options division of the British banking giant Lloyd’s TSB, Shah moved up to Roosevelt & Cross Inc., an old-line New York boutique firm. There he originated and ran a packaged fixed-income trading desk, and established that company’s “listed” and OTC trading desks.
Shah founded a second hedge fund in 1999, which he ran until 2003.
Shah’s vast network of contacts includes the biggest players on Wall Street and in international finance. These contacts give him the real story – when others only get what the investment banks want them to see.
Today, as editor of Hyperdrive Portfolio, Shah presents his legion of subscribers with massive profit opportunities that result from paradigm shifts in the way we work, play, and live.
Shah is a frequent guest on CNBC, Forbes, and MarketWatch, and you can catch him every week on Fox Business’s Varney & Co.
