Week in Review

For the week, crude prices were up slightly.  The week started up on Monday on news of falling rig counts.  On Tuesday the market spiked over $2 on the news that Trump would delay part of the latest round of tariffs from September to December.

However, Wednesday brought back recessionary fears as the yield curve inverted – a reliable sign that a recession is coming.  The market wiped out most of Tuesdays gains and is up marginally for the week as trading ended the week relatively flat.
