For the Oil Doubters

Oil prices continue to "grind" higher despite the headwind of continued rising inventories and an OPEC consortium that, as usual, cannot adhere to their quotas. I remain a staunch advocate for overweight exposure to energy, both near and long term.  However, in a more recent blog, I retired from the $90 before $60 and $85 before $75 prediction game. So, what I present is an excellent article from Bloomberg highlighting how determined the Chinese are to secure their energy future.  Enjoy and invest accordingly.
