Week 33: August 16, 2015 -- August 22, 2015

Wow, what a week. Earlier I suggested that the market (the Dow) might lose 1,000 points in less than a week and wow, if I wasn't just about right. What an opportunity for long-term investors.

I also learned a bit more about the global crude oil trading market, and one of these days, I may even remember the definition of contango.

I end the week with a great Politico story with this graphic (sorry about all the white space -- that's how Politico posted the graphic):

The WTI oil crawler suggests oil broke through the $40-floor today. Peak oil? What peak oil? This is absolutely insane.

I particularly enjoyed two posts this week: the "crack cocaine and heroine" post and the Mexican swap post. Also, RBN Energy on the Mexican swap.
