Resources & Commodities

Natural resources occur within the environment in their original and natural form, undisturbed by humanity. Natural resources come in many forms. It may be a solid, liquid or gas. It may be organic or inorganic. It may also be metallic or non-metallic. It may be renewable or non-renewable.

For that reason, you’re guaranteed to hear about the hottest news affecting commodities around the world.

Remember, with the exception of the air you breathe, everything you use in your daily life is made from commodities that are either grown or mined. The chair you are sitting on, the computer terminal you are viewing, the fiber optic cable bringing you this feed — all are products of agriculture or mining, the most basic of all industries.

Saudi Arabia’s Gambit to Boost Oil Prices
To break even next year, Saudi Arabia needs oil prices to stay above US$70 per barrel. I believe there’s an extremely low chance of oil prices staying above that level, let alone hitting it.
