Hugo Chavez passing opens doors for possible energy changes.

Market News

03.06.13

Top Day Market News 

Certainly an interesting development for oil markets last night was the passing of Hugo Chavez. Venezuela has the cheapest gasoline in the world at 6 cents a gallon. His passing opens the door to change.

The ADP private jobs forecast showed a gain of 198,000 jobs. And this was enough to keep equities higher and bonds lower. The metals didn’t like the number immediately came in for some profit-taking only to rebound sharply, showing bipolar tendencies. Watch for draws in crude oil stocks today with the release of the Department of Energy numbers at 1030.
