just another 25% or so and we'll be back to 4.50 on GXO. LOL.

I'm going to drip it, maybe it can recover over time.

As ENB/ENF bagholder, I'm so jealous of PPL, new 52w high daily since ER (dipped to $43 and now $46)
Decent 4-5% yield too
Jerry, our ENb/ENF time will come, too.

I can't believe this **** company. Are they intentionally trying to fleece shareholders or what? And I only bought 1000 worth.

Need to dump on Monday. I'm done.

US RIGS UP, downside oil time.

News reporting US rigs are up (fact) and FORECAST that demand will be there next year.

I dont buy this forecast but I am worrisome about OPEC meeting later in NOV.

TSX Energy ugly, -2~5%
Stairs UP, Elevator DOWN
We've actually been on something of an elevator ride up lately. 42 --> 57 in less than 5 months, and Brent rose even faster. Today's a bad day for price action, but nothing about the fundamentals has materially changed. The rig count's been down/flat for months, inventories are drawing like crazy, and the spread is still supportive of US exports. Today could be a reaction to the unexpected rise in the rig count on Friday, a reaction to the EIA's report on December shale production this morning, or part of the general risk-off that has equities tumbling today. Quite likely, all three are contributing. Either way, it's not surprising for an upward advance to periodically retrace.

Edit: Actually, it seems that the big contributor to the price crash was the IEA's latest demand/supply guestimate, as they guessed that we are currently oversupplied and will only be more oversupplied in the future. Considering that OPEC predicted the exact opposite just yesterday, that IEA's calls have been wrong as often as right lately, and, most importantly, that their call seems to contradict recent inventory changes, as well as the Brent/WTI spread, I'm going to take it with a grain of salt.
