Key Questions: What Does the Crisis in Texas say About Energy Markets?

In our November 30, 2020 edition of Key Questions titled, "What Surprises Might 2021 Have for Us?," we said the following: "Crude oil exits 2021 above $60 per barrel, and Energy is the best performing sector in the S&P 500 Index. With the global economy set to rebound sharply once vaccines become available, it becomes apparent to market participants just how much damage was done to US upstream production capabilities. Demand increases significantly, and the slow reaction function of producers causes prices to rise more than the consensus expects. Equity investors who have shunned the Energy sector are forced to chase performance, further driving rotation into Cyclicals."

Key Questions: What Causes Bubbles To Burst?

In prior essays, we described how certain conditions that existed during periods in which asset bubbles were created are again apparent. Of these conditions, there are three that commonly surfaced: Interest rates were at or near zero; central banks assured the markets that interest rates would remain low for an extended period, forcing investors out on the risk curve; and an abundance of liquidity. These circumstances are evident today.
