All eyes will be on Oil on Thursday both longs and shorts as they try and take advantage of further gains or a retreat as profit takers could show up in mass.

Oil traded from $10 to $35 range for 20 straight years. Then in the last 5 years all of a sudden it soars to $50-$147 range.

My personal opinion is that this is the "Iran factor".   There was no corresponding spike in metals.    I think is purely supply-disruption speculation.    Of course, I could be wrong, but that's how I see this one.

Oil fell 8%+ last week...maybe the surge is just a correction...the reaction to increasing supplies was overdone?  Or, the oversupply is now being balanced by supply disruption speculation.  I wouldn't bet on many similar one-day moves unless something big happens in Iran.
