Counterpoint: futures have been wrong for 9 consecutive sessions. How often does 10 in a row happen? Edit - can't reply to /u/lalittle so responding in edit: If it was a coin we wouldn't have to ask, we'd know now that we're at #9 the odds of reaching #10 are 50/50. Stonks isn't a coin. #10 here has less than half as much chance of happening as #9, unlike with a coin.

My COIN puts have gone from 100% gains to 30% gains in 2 days. If there is anything I’ve learned trading the market in 2022, panic to the upside has been more violent than to the downside, even though the trend is still down.

Great write-up. Disagree that the conclusions are foregone. Mean reversion has a flawless record of humbling forecasters, be they blue sky or doom/gloom. WWIII might happen, but there are other outcomes that can happen as well. The world is not a static place. It's chaotic and responsive, which is what makes chaos theory fuck every elegant economics theory. The same that makes weather prediction past 10 days a coin flip. What else could happen? * Russia could implode on itself, causing a power vacuum, splintering of the old soviet states, scrambles for power, and subsequent strong negotiating position for the west on all those raw inputs. Ukraine isn't going so well for Russia of late. * India or another large, as-of-yet neutral participant could buy up the energy, increasing their production. As a second order effect, all these goods will make their way into the global economy (one way or another they *will* influence prices, whether exported - increasing supply - or consumed domestically - decreasing demand). China is another participant large enough and in a sufficient position to bargain with Russia. * Unaccounted energy usage could be disguised, what Toffler called ***prosumption.*** If you build a shed in your backyard, on your own, *your labor is not reflected in GDP.* In simple language, the numbers might not be reflecting reality. Of all the solar, wind, and various off-grid energy solutions which has become popular lately, how is it accounted for in this global pool. Is it a rounding error or an amount significant to total production? I don't know, but it's not zero. * The US and/or Europe could ramp up production hard and fast. It's happened before. Incentives drive actions. No incentive is better for wildcatters and politicians alike than high energy prices. Politicians want them lower and wildcatters want that $$$. It doesn't take that long to bring oil production online. *What takes a long ass time is all the artificial constraints (red tape) associated with drilling.* These are man made constraints and they can be unmade. * Saudi Arabia could capitulate. Seems unlikely, but two things are not hard to believe. They don't make their own weapons. Human beings cannot eat sand. Not even desert dwellers. Looking at the state of the art 60 year old weapons Russia has been sending it's soldiers into combat with, the Saudi's don't have a great deal of selection when it comes to buying arms. They either buy from the west or they buy from China. Both of those come with implicit guarantees of benefits and penalties. They can't choose both. Greatly enjoyed your write-up. I do agree with you on one point. ***Next couple years are likely to be wild.***
