Crude Oil and Natural Gas: Be greedy when others are fearful?
The first thing I learned about the financial and commodity markets is not to fall in love with high-flying assets, although doing so lately has worked. Likewise, writing off markets most traders have grown to hate is generally a bad move in the long run. The explanation is simple, most active speculators are wrong more than they are right; human behavior and opinions change, even the “facts” can change as they did with the peak oil theory. Thus, if the masses are convinced a commodity will do one thing it generally does the opposite; if beating the markets were easy, everyone would do it.
