2017 is turning to an end and even the least sentimental among us tend to look back and see what happened and where they are with their professional goals, their careers, and personal life. This was a busy year at Phillip Capital and as we look forward to 2018 we thought is time to recap the history so far.

Two weeks ago I became a mother of four. I had returned a favor of a friend to look after her two children over the weekend. The children were very close in age (4, 6, 7, 7+, respectively); and for the most part they played with each other and were quite self-contained. They did not disturb the adults very much except when they were hungry or when a fight broke out. When the latter happened, there would first be some screaming/screeching, and then the sound of footsteps closing in on me.

NYMEX WTI Crude futures front month contract has traded in a $15-16 range (low 39.19 / high 55.24) since May of 2016. The bulk of the volume/value occurred between $44 - $54 per barrel range. In September, OPEC announced extended cuts to production. Leading into this meeting the markets bought the rumor and after trading to just under $53 per barrel in late September the market squeezed weak longs and touched just above $49 and swiftly bounced. CL has not looked back since, breaking highs not seen since 2015 this month.
