    Our retirement funds create a disconnect between the index funds we invest in and demand for oil. Those in the know (investors and oil companies) can take advantage of the discrepancies by hustling speculators and taking their money. But there's a price to pay. Eventually, the so-called safe index fund drops in price and wipes out people's investments.

    Yes another Wall Street shell game.

    In oversupplied markets this can mislead fellow investors. They see buying interest coming from somewhere, though they can’t quite understand from where. The fundamentals don’t explain it, but prices are rising regardless, led usually by the cheapest securities, and in tandem. With no ability to see the dark inventory, the market finally falls for the trend. They believe the demand is real.

    If you are the accumulator of dark inventory, or privy to the flow, you are able to foresee the market rallies and position yourself accordingly. This is a profitable time.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
