  • Disequilibrium is the norm
  • Why the fall in oil prices has accelerated
  • A brief review of fundamental, technical, mechanical and macro factors
  • Geopolitical analysis suggests oil prices continue to fall
  • China's decelerating economy has been the primary macro negative for oil
  • The best way for oil companies and institutions to position themselves in this market
