    From the Floor: Red alert as China fears intensify

    From the Floor: Red alert as China fears intensify
    Fear is sweeping through world financial markets this morning as depressing evidence of China's increasingly poor economic health triggered sharp falls on Asian bourses and battered already-weakened emerging market and commodity currencies. Crude oil is a standout exception to the rout and has experienced its biggest rally in 25 years.

    No 'quick fix' for low oil prices: Opec

    Oil may have just completed its strongest three-day rally in a quarter of a century, but prices are still well off 2014 levels as a supply-driven rout continues to rage through markets. In a statement released yesterday, Opec said that low prices remain a concern for its members and there is "no quick fix" for the glut that has enveloped the oil market and driven prices lower. "Oil is losing the shale war" said analyst Richard Hastings of Global Hunter Securities; "without oil prices at exceptionally high prices, then [Opec members] are staring at big troubles". Brent crude is currently trading at $53.06/barrel.

    Oil's three big days wipe out a month of losses

    Opec signaled future cuts to production and the US lowered output estimates, putting oil back into a bull market less than a week after hitting a six-year low. Prices surged 8.8% in New York, capping the biggest three-day gain in 25 years. The Energy Information Administration changed the way it calculates how much oil comes out of the ground and 13.2 million barrels vanished with a government blog post. Opec, producer of about 40% of the world’s oil, renewed its commitment to talk to other exporters to achieve “fair and reasonable prices” and it says it won’t prop up oil prices by cutting supply unless non-member nations agree to share the burden. So is the glut over? Depends on who you ask.

    Jinkosolar: Playing the dubious relationship with oil

    China Watcher / Shanghai
    The positive relationship between solar energy shares and crude oil is dubious, because the two aren’t direct energy competitors. But the market trades as though they are, so after the strong performance of crude over the past three days, investors should expect the relationship to hold. Jinkosolar is one of the strongest firms in the industry and it should be a beneficiary of oil’s rally.
