Crude Oil had the biggest rally in the past twenty five years.

Today on The Bubba Show, Todd comments on the recent volatile price action in the equity markets. While he notes that the U.S. economy is not performing very well, he believes the rally from the blowoff bottom three weeks ago could be the beginning of move to the upside or it might be a great chance to sell. If the markets cannot get back to the top, there could be some very large sellers entering equities.

Bubba introduces segments from his appearance on the Maria Bartiromo show last week. Maria comments on the wild swings in the Crude Oil market since just this past week it has had the biggest rally in the past twenty five years. Maria asks Bubba to comment on the equity markets. He claimed that at this point in time the Bank of China is running the worldwide markets, asserting that nothing will transpire until we know if they are going to intervene.  

Later, Bubba comments on the rally in Oil and the parabolic move. He believes that the key level of resistance to the upside is the $50 level. If Oil should struggle there he would not be surprised to see it challenge the lows again. Bubba thinks that some of the Oil service company stocks are now being overdone to the downside and that they represent a good buy. Maria comments on the Fed’s policy.

Finally, Bubba introduces clips from his appearance with Kim Parlee of Money Talk in Canada. Kim asks him about the fear in the markets. Bubba laments that when you have uncertainty in the markets concerning the second and third largest economies in the world, you are going to have a lot of volatility. And after the longest period of congestion in over one hundred years, volatility was bound to enter the market.  Kim and Bubba then discuss the interest rate race to the bottom which is creating several problems.
