With Israel flexing their middle East muscles against Assad and Iran. Looks like we're going to have a bull run in oil (CONVENIENTLY before Aramco, the largest oil company in the world(worth over a trillion dollars) goes public at the end of this year on stock exchanges.)

I just loaded up on HOU.to on the Toronto stock exchange. Back in 2013 oil prices it was up to over 250 dollars a share, right now sitting at 9.13... lots of money to be made if things start heating up with Israel (u.s. backed) and Iran(Russian backed).

I'm not for death and destruction btw. Hope the war doesn't happen of course.

One thing I notice before a large bull run is heavy market manipulation to drive a price downward so that people can load up on shares or for hostile takeovers.

I've seen it alot on pot stocks as of late. But noticeably the last few weeks on oil stocks, heavy manipulation to start downward trends, trigger stop losses to make accounts sell off their shares which make it drop even more and then the manipulators are able to load up on cheap shares, then they let the a stock run up.

This war was planned and they're playing the markets to coalesce a profit from starting a war. Via oil.

I've avoided the stock market since I lost all of my play money in it many years ago... but I would say the economy is ripe for soem shenanigains where someone in the know can make some cash quick in the next few years.

Oil could be the ticket- I've only got investments in crypto at the moment.

What exchange do you use? I had a scottrade account years ago, but I heard they got rolled into some other company.

The thing I notice about oil prices is that they are a reverse mirror image of the value of the US dollar.
Recently the US dollar index dropped below 90 as the price of oil rallied above 60 dollars a barrel.
That is about twice what it was at the 2016 low.
Higher interest rates should strengthen the US dollar in the coming months so unless they choreograph a shortage it doesn't look like a good long term investment.

I would believe that the IPO is caused by the fracking tech going 100 percent over what anyone expected. Is your purchase old fashioned sweet crude or?

ANyway, one of the bizarre realities these days is that apparently the USA produces more oil than anyone else. It has caused a sea change in politics - definitely middle eastern politics.

For me, I always say hold on to anything you have that is paying dividends and then re-invest. Everything else, sell high, buy low.

A "bull run"? Why? Besides a bunch of assertions and personal opinion, there's nothing to suggest a bull run in oil.

Do you notice increasing supply and little-to-no projected growth in demand as a recipe for a bull run?? If so, I've a got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale -- there's an anticipated bull run in bridges. FAIL.

Just one piece of evidence this is nonsense and some poor attempt at expousing some knowledge concerning geopolitical manipulations in commodity markets

If they're anything like bump stocks I guess they'll get banned.

You're already eating your own words. Oil has been running for 3 days now. Saudi oil refinery was attacked this morning.

Did they come forward with dividend projection, or is it buy and hold?

Personally I would never hold too much stock from any company that wasn't making it worth my while. No dividend is similar to gambling in my mind.
