Oil Up 99% In 75 Trading Days

Oil has rallied more over the last 75 trading days than it did at any time during its entire bubble run from 2001-2008. In fact, its current rally of 99% since the February 12th low is nearly double the highest 75-day rally during the last oil bull (From December 2001 to April 2002, oil rallied 55% over 75-days.) Oil has also gone from $33.75 to $67.75 in just 75 trading days. During the 2001-2008 oil bubble, it took 409 trading days to complete the same task from January 2004 to August 2005. While many investors are arguing that oil's rally is a good sign for the global economy and equity markets, let's hope it doesn't keep up the pace, or else we'll be right back to $150 in no time.

It's not a question of enough, pal. It's a zero sum game, somebody wins, somebody loses. Money itself isn't lost or made, it's simply transferred from one perception to another.
