Hedge Funds Have A Lot To Answer To – Its A Right Mess They Have Got Us Into With Their Greedy Ways

Care to Dance the Contango?

Care to Dance the Contango? Any time that commodity prices reach highs or lows, speculators are invariably the culprits. Today’s energy market is no exception. Many commodity market commentators have been quite upfront in their assertions that current high energy prices (and metals prices too) are due to speculative excess, rather than supply and demand conditions. Now the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations has endorsed these views (and given them substantial credibility) in a just released a report claiming that fundamental supply and demand conditions cannot explain current high oil prices, and asserting that speculative activity is to blame instead.
