US to be big oil producer


We have found five times more proven reserves of crude oil than we had in 1968. And I guarantee that in 20 years we’ll have more than five times the crude oil we’ve found today. Just (recently) they announced in South Texas that they found three billion more barrels of proven reserves of crude.

America is the biggest supplier of oil to America. The President has said we’re going to end the United States dependency on Middle East crude oil, and my response is that we’ve already done that.”

Expect no fed monetary policy action this week


Dennis Gartman, editor of the Gartman Letter, expects that the Fed's monetary policy committee will take no action whatsoever this week.

Indeed, the only things that might come from the meeting is further clarification, if any, of its intentions moving forward regarding purchases and/or dispensing of assets from its balance sheet.

The debate at the meeting very well may focus on upon potential losses that might be suffered by the bank on its balance sheet as debt prices weaken and interest rates rise.

Dennis Gartman's biggest fear is.........

Gartman's biggest fear is that it will take at least two years before the U.S. realizes it has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.
