vitol? who is that?
Vitol is a leading partner for the provision of trading or marketing services across every oil and energy sector.
Who is Vitol managing partner? Who is owner of Record? where are they from ? ie country of origin?
Don’t know. Somewhere over in Europe, last I saw.
The entity in question was Vitol according to published reports (see link below). The CFTC was not doing its job to prevent a short squeeze. As soon as Vitol was reclassified from “hedger” to “speculator” by the CFTC the price of oil fell $20. (Hedgers are not subject to position limits). The damage to the economy has already occurred.
Can you explain this?
I just heard about Vitol apparently owning over 80% of NYMEX contracts – how does something like this happen without anyone knowing about it?
As long as you have companies looking to do things in a way that no one knows about it, odds are at least a few of them will succeed.
In this case, I have no specific details.
