Because the markets offered off on Thursday, gold, and silver have been few of the one property that remained within the inexperienced for the whole day. Thus, the notion that the dear metals will crash with the markets continues to be confirmed incorrect. And what an unsightly day it was because the Dow Jones fell 450 factors at its low, whereas the Greenback, oil, and shale shares have been clobbered.
In fact, there was a late day rally that pushed the markets off their lows because the Dow Jones Index solely closed down by 286 factors. Nonetheless, the true loser yesterday was oil and oil shares, particularly the shale oil shares. As I discussed in a earlier article, THE BLOODBATH IN U.S. SHALE STOCKS CONTINUES: Worst Is But To Come, the shale shares have been severely underperforming the key oil firms for the reason that peak within the oil market in October.
Sadly, the scenario within the shale shares went from BAD to WORSE. Because the oil value fell eight% over the previous two days, with nearly all of the decline on Thursday, a number of shale shares have been decimated. The next chart exhibits the value efficiency between three main oil firms and three shale shares:
Because the oil value fell $1.50 on Wednesday and one other $Three.5 on Thursday, it impacted the shale shares extra negatively than the key oil firms. Whereas BP, Chevron, and ExxonMobil’s share costs fell 2-Three%, the shale shares plummeted 9-16%. Continental Assets inventory fell 9.5% over the 2 days, however the true losers have been Oasis, down 13% and Whiting, dropping a shocking 16%.
Plainly the shale shares that focus within the Bakken are a lot weaker than these within the Permian, like Pioneer and Concho. Nonetheless, I imagine the opposite shale shares will doubtless observe the identical path once they attain peak manufacturing.
An ideal instance is Whiting Petroleum. Whiting’s manufacturing peaked in Q3 2015 at 127,00zero barrels per day of oil and is now right down to solely 84,00zero barrels per day. Moreover, Whiting’s inventory value is at $19.32, off its highs of $370 again in 2014. However, traders should keep in mind that Whiting issued a Four-1 reverse break up which really makes the present worth of the inventory at $Four.83 off its excessive of $92 in 2014. When an organization does a Four-1 reverse break up, that isn’t signal.
I imagine Whiting is in actual bother, particularly when it closes firmly beneath the Main Help Degree of $16. As soon as the markets lastly begin to permit the awful financial fundamentals to kick in, the oil value will drop like a rock. Because the oil value falls again towards $30-$40, it would destroy a whole lot of these shale firms as they turn out to be penny shares like Sanchez Power which is now buying and selling at 12 cents a share.
Now, whereas a lot of the market was in a SEA OF RED yesterday, gold and silver loved good features. We are able to see this fairly clearly within the subsequent chart. This chart exhibits the Dow Jones Index versus gold and silver. Because the Dow Jones fell 400+ factors out of the gate, gold and silver did fairly the alternative:
The Dow Jones Index is displayed by the candlesticks, whereas the dear metals are proven within the gold and blue coloured traces. The valuable metals are doing exactly what they’re alleged to… and that’s to guard traders whereas all the pieces TURNS RED. However, I imagine that is solely a small style of what will be an explosive valuable metals rally when the markets get actually ugly.
Now, at present we’re seeing the alternative because the Plunge Safety Workforce tries to push the markets again within the inexperienced so Individuals can get pleasure from their Memorial Day weekend vacation. Nonetheless, after the general markets gapped larger, the oil value fell, pulling the shale shares down, as soon as once more. Whiting Petroleum opened larger to $19.95 however is now buying and selling beneath $19.00… even decrease than what it closed at yesterday ($19.32).
Individuals want to organize themselves for one hell of an financial and market downturn. Whereas the Fed and central banks can prop up asset costs, they will’t prop up a bodily financial system that’s primed for a recession-depression.
