01[11:18] {@Threei}  The move up in oil prices seen on Friday afternoon continued in the Asia and European sessions, as front-month WTI futures rose as high as $50.50, up more than 7% from Friday's low of around $44.30. Reports of ISIS attacks in northern Iraq were said to be behind the moves, although month-end trading and closing out of bearish positions was more likely.
01[11:18] {@Threei}  Note that there has also been talk about higher OPEC production in January and news the USW would launch strikes at nine US refineries, and WTI has fallen back to $48 as of writing.

01[11:29] {@Threei}  OPEC officials indicates that oil prices could remain low through to the summer months as a result of weak seasonal demand; cannot rule out oil dropping into the $30's on weak demand - press - See prices being supported right now by winter and stockpiling
01[11:57] {@Threei}  (GR) German Fin Min Schaeuble: Russia cannot replace EU solidarity for Greece, do not appreciate new Greece government's closeness to Russia- Not really interested in Russia's economic difficulties
01[11:57] {@Threei}  that's harsh
01[11:58] {@Threei}  (US) White House releases President Obama's $3.99T 2015 budget plan, with +6.4% y/y spending growth, seeks $1.8T in deficit reduction over ten years - press - Would replace sequestration spending cuts with other spending cuts- Earmarks $14B for cybersecurity efforts ($1B increase from year ago)

01[13:38] {@Threei}  be back in an hour
[13:59] {nemo} last line in Boston Globe article: "They Did Their Job. They are champs again. And the record will show that 15 years after he was fired by Kraft, Carroll finally delivered a Lombardi trophy to New England."
[14:00] {RonS} lol...perfect
[14:10] {cosmo} What happened to my idol Pete Carroll...sigh. You'd think he's the guy that through the pass
[14:11] {cosmo} Maybe I should watch the tape
[14:13] {cosmo} remember: it's all in the execution
[14:17] {RonS} well, the execution was this:  Lynch was getting 2-3 yds after contact by the Pats and Seattle was on the 1...the play prior he picked up 4 from the 5 yard line... Plus every time Wilson ran he got 15+
[14:20] {cosmo} I've seen guys like Lynch (no matter how good) fumble on the next play ... Chargers do it all the time (hehe)
[14:21] {RonS} Wison's short pass game had stunk...only completions in the game had been 20+ yards i think
[14:21] {cosmo} yeah, I gotta see that one he made on the prior play
[14:23] {RonS} just thinkin...Carroll would have been better off to call the that
[14:26] {cosmo} to fumble on purpose?
[14:28] {RonS} no, the QB takes an under center snap...places the ball on the ground behind center...the line and everyone go right or left...except one guy who picks up the ball and goes the opposite direction
[14:30] {cosmo} that would prolly be a linebacker...
