I originally thought they may be manipulating prices for the election then
looked into the matter a big. Demand for oil is slipping a bit after the
summer drive season, China is slowing a bit as is the rest of the world, no
major hurricanes affected Gulf oil pumps and refineries, and oil storage
stocks were up. As collaboration other indicators such as copper have slipped.
Now that the election has passed oil is once again over $60 and headed up
so I guess they were manipulated for political gain though thankfully it
did little good. Gold and silver are headed up, aluminum is steady, and
copper is headed down. Copper is used in many things from printed circuit
boards to house wiring. As the economy cools demand is cooling rapidly,
copper was well over $3.80 this summer and now it is down to $3.12. Gold
was down to about $560 a month ago and is now $630
