Crude Oil Up 7 Straight Weeks, Why and Where from Here

Oil prices have been on the rise while other risk assets have been on the slide, why is that? We look at the fundamentals and technical analysis behind the rise of WTI and Brent crude oil futures both up seven straight weeks. The longest winning streaks since February last year. The geopolitical and derivative frameworks have much to do with energy prices, how do we trade and invest with that. For August WTI is up 17.8%, Gasoline is up 12.6%, diesel up +27.5% and Jet fuel up 31.4%. Keep that in mind when you read through Julys just released US CPI and PPI reports.
