If you pumped petrol these few days, you may have noticed a big sign board at the petrol station stating “Petrol Price Has Changed!” Today, ExxonMobil Synergy 5000 is selling at $2.12/liter.
If you have been following my blog, I have already warned at end of Nov that investors should not neglect the oil crisis outside euro zone. Brent Crude Oil has shot up since mid of December and has exceeded US$113 per barrel today.
Ironically, when Euro and US are pictured as doomed places and all the “analysts” and “professionals” yell that 2012 is another crisis year, Dow Jones Industrial Average Index has just reached its Golden Cross (a technical bullish indicator) when its 50-day simple moving average crossed above the 200-day simple moving average.
Next time when you pump petrol again, don’t just sign the credit card slip. Take a look at the price and see what does it tell you.
