Ernesto First Major Storm Of The Season

Recommended Posts

Just when oil prices were starting to relax Ernesto starts to bang the barrel.

Hurricane alerts issued for Ernesto

Hurricane watches were issued Saturday for Jamaica and the Cayman Islands as Tropical Storm Ernesto picked up power in the Caribbean. Forecasters said Ernesto could be a hurricane by Monday, churning out winds of 74 mph or higher as it nears western Cuba and the United States.

Combined with Irans continuing nuclear ambition this should firm up oil prices early this week, which will exert further inflationary pressures.

The hurricane's spook effect may linger longer than the material threat, but the lack of progress in the Iran situation will likely to exert a more persistent price pressure.

Ernesto, bit of an iffy name but then when you're a hurricane who is going to argue with you?

P.S. Just for a laugh I bumped up the Katrina thread from last year. It's always funny to look at things with the retrospectoscope.

What and when was the autumn peak price for oil last year?

I note that for commodities, places like yahoo never list more than 5 day history. I have my own dim view of why that is but l'll save that for another thread.

Guest Alright Jack

I can hear the hands rubbing together over at BP, Shell, Total and Exxon! Shouts of "Bring it on..." "Yeah Babeee" "Crack open the Dom and Churchills.."

I see your point. If I was an evil oil baron and I saw another hurricane threatening to blow a ruddy great hole in billions of dollars of platform infrastructure then yeah, I'd be rubbing my hands with glee....

RB, you don't think stuff through!
