Today's Energy and Capital

December 18th, 2014 - By Christian A. DeHaemer

Using a few simple tools, you too can make triple-digit gains while other investors panic...

This morning, the price of Brent crude jumped 3.3% back above $62 on news that the Fed thinks the U.S. market is getting better.

The Russian market jumped 5.45%, and the Oslo exchange climbed 3.61%. The Nikkei 225 was up 2.32%, and the Hang Seng was up 1.09% overnight.

Was it only yesterday that the headlines were screaming about a second “Asian Contagion” like we had in 1998?

About Energy and Capital

Today, energy is at a global crossroads. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates a minimum of $20 trillion needs to be invested over the next 25 years to meet surging energy demand and to offset the declining reserves of the world's major oil fields.

There is, however, a solution to the looming energy crisis--a solution that will encompass numerous energy technologies and practices. The blueprint for success will not only include alternative and renewable energy, but the economic harvesting of remaining and unconventional oil sources as well.

Within that blueprint for renewable energy and sustainable energy use lies the most profitable investments this century has to offer. These are the energy stocks and investment strategies that fully exploit the "New Energy Economy." And Energy and Capital's editors and researchers bring them to market each and every day.
