Creaking Commodities

By -

I am slipping back into my love affair for commodities (and crude oil in particular). I really like how the overall sector is starting to slip and tumble……


I have 44 short positions now but will probably inch that up to at least 50 by day’s end.

My frequent listening of the Hamilton soundtrack continues, and I’m convinced You’ll Be Back is the best possible song I can imagine for anyone who ever leaves Slope (or, worse, Slope Plus). It fits my feelings to a “T”.

You say the price of my love’s not a price that you’re willing to pay
You cry in your tea which you hurl in the sea when you see me go by
Why so sad?
Remember we made an arrangement when you went away
Now you’re making me mad
Remember despite our estrangement, I’m your man

You’ll be back
Soon you’ll see
You’ll remember you belong to me
You’ll be back
Time will tell
You’ll remember that I served you well

Oceans rise, empires fall
We have seen each other through it all
And when push comes to shove,
I will send a fully armed battalion to remind you of my love

You say our love is draining and you can’t go on
You’ll be the one complaining when I am gone

And, no, don’t change the subject
‘Cause you’re my favorite subject
My sweet, submissive subject
My loyal, royal subject
Forever and ever and ever and ever and ever

You’ll be back
Like before
I will fight the fight and win the war
For your love
For your praise
And I’ll love you till my dying days

When you’re gone, I’ll go mad
So don’t throw away this thing we had
‘Cause when push comes to shove
I will kill your friends and family to remind you of my love
