Who writes this stuff? "Crude Prices Swing Between Gains, Losses"

Recommended Posts

Really?  Magic 8 Ball could write better headlines.

WSJ:

Crude Prices Swing Between Gains, Losses

Crude futures swung between small gains and losses on Tuesday after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies signaled they were planning to maintain their current curbs on crude output through next year, holding off on more aggressive cuts.

Yesterday oil went from 56.6 to 57.5, and then back again ... 

Groundbreaking moves. And journalism.

Magic 8 Ball "yellow category" fits the bill nicely:

Remember the bet between me and hedge fund friend?  Made it at 59 ... she is 74, I'm 44. 

Could take a while ☹️ ... need shooty/super glut/trade talks, anything! This mid 50s shit is boring.

My friend has gotten to the point where he checks his stock investments almost every minute on his cell phone.  This affects him in that when his stocks are up he is happy and when they are down he is unhappy.  This mood swing can happen during daily stock swings.  I am sure that he is not the only one who is chained this way to the stock market.

Sounds like his positions are too big then, if checking every few minutes.

He’ll be really unhappy if he’s doing this while driving and either a cop pulls him over or he becomes a hood ornament on a Mack truck!

That makes it even worse mate.

If oil or gold I'd understand, kinda - the potential stress factor short term if large positions and checking all the time.

Penny stocks not worth the stress, tell him to reduce position sizes and learn patience ...  👍

A magic 8 ball or random number generator would actually improve a lot of peoples trading success.  People are emotional creatures.

Ten positive answers, five negative, five noncommittal. Positivity must sell better.
