Awash in Oil – Live with Tracy Shuchart

Live ·
Featuring Tracy Shuchart 

Published on: March 27th, 2020 • Duration: 55 minutes

In a world that isn’t moving, the price of oil is likely to move in only one direction – down. As global producers continue to flood the market, we are increasingly facing a situation in which not only are we awash in oil, but are actually running out of places to store it. This is a crisis unlike any other, and, as things deteriorate, the ugly side of markets, international relations, and geopolitics will begin to emerge. To help us better understand the complicated nature of this market and what these low oil prices could mean moving forward, Tracy Shuchart, a wildly successful independent trader that specializes strictly on energy markets, will be joining us on Real Vision Live as we continue to cover the latest market moving events in the time of COVID-19.

    As much as I respect Tracy's view and expertise, it can sometimes be hard to listen to her. Apart from the bad acoustics Anthony has already mentioned, a lot of "you know", "I mean", "ahm". No offense.

      I found it easy to understand Tracy and didn't even notice. Great talk! Hope to have Tracy on again.

      I get the impression (and I may be way off the mark) that Tracy is quite shy/nervous on screen. I think she at times loses her train of thought and her amygdala is screaming aaaaaaarrrrrgh! making it difficult to say what she wants. Her extensive knowledge is easily identifiable, though and she's well respected in her subject. If I'm right, I have no doubt that the more she appears on screen, the easier it will become. Awesome content. Theres always something to be learned from Tracy.

    This is a comment/question for RV admins. Do you guys still update the app? I can’t find any of this Live video series on there. I only access RV on my phone for various reasons, and often can’t find other content on the app. I’m now watching in a browser on the phone, which is cumbersome, but beats missing video after video. I’m aware of the email notifications, but honestly don’t trawl through every one of them. It would be great if the app content reflected the actual available content, especially for Pro content. Grateful for all you guys do, just want to know if I should just delete the app altogether?

    She’s so great! Very generous with her extensive knowledge, on twitter and here. Thanks to Ed too for another great interview.

    When was this filmed? Is RV not disclosing that date anymore?

      I find it very frustrating that the non-live videos no longer show the date they were filmed. For some of the information, that is very important to know

    Quite a chilling take on Alberta and i think Tracy even overestimates the prospects of getting new west bound pipeline capacity built. B.C.'s attitude to Alberta is like California's to Texas. Not only does BC not feel any obligation to help out Alberta but they feel a positive duty to stop any pipelines being built. Morover, currently, the only oil that heads West is on rail car and I can easily envision a day when BC wakes up to the fact that it is not grain cars crossing the Province and target stopping those too. I feel sorry for Alberta (lived there once) but I think its future as an oil exporter is in doubt.

    "The reason that I say that is even Russia's come back and said, OK, OK. We want to cut now. This is too much pain for us. So for me, it wasn't about getting shale. Shale was collateral damage, in my opinion." I nearly fell off my chair when I heard the above statement from Ms Shuchart. In the intervening 36 hours I have still not found any credible source to back up this assertion. Either RV has quite a scoop on its hands or this is an as yet unfulfilled prophecy from Ms Shuchart. Clarification is called for please.

    Acoustics in Tracy's room is awful! Hard to hear what she is saying with that slapback going on. Go to a room with some carpet or something.

    Well done. Lower oil prices will be helpful in CPI during the Coronavirus crisis., Ms. Shuchart is certainly correct that inflation in oil and base metals will be on the agenda once we get through this. Maybe a year or two. DLS
