Oil investors have grown more optimistic as of late, as oil prices have moved back to $50 per barrel. The market appears to be on sounder footing, suggesting that things will gradually tighten for the rest of the year. But it is unclear how far oil prices can really move above today’s position.

Hedge funds and other money managers have begun buying up long positions on oil futures, a sign of growing bullishness. Reuters analyst John Kemp argues that the positioning of hedge funds has entered the third bullish phase of 2017, after two previous cycles ran their course earlier this year.

HighlandvalleybigPolicy across the U.S. is changing fast since the election of President Trump. And natural resource companies have already begun to benefit from the shift.

Now two more major measures have just come down -- which could open big opportunities for mining and energy in the U.S.

The Department of Interior yesterday unveiled a raft of new policies. One of the biggest being a rollback of Obama-era regulations put in to protect wildlife.

Specifically, the sage grouse. A bird that resides in several prime mining and petroleum jurisdictions -- particularly in western U.S. states such as Nevada.

The Obama administration had brought in federal protection for the sage grouse. Including strict rules on land use in areas where the bird resides -- which had threatened to withdraw large tracts of land from mineral development and oil and gas drilling.

b48e226cedc003abf643fa017e783415Big international oil companies are currently generating more cash at around-US$50 oil price than they did when the price of oil exceeded US$100 in early 2014, Goldman Sachs reckons.

“Simplification, standardization and deflation are repositioning the oil industry for better profitability and cash generation in the current environment than in 2013-14 when the oil price was above $100 a barrel,” Goldman Sachs analysts said in a research note on Wednesday, as quoted by Bloomberg.
