Do you think the institutional investors flight to the commodities market is increasing inflation?

Texas oilman T Boone Pickens said, ' investment froth has pushed up oil prices by $15.'The flood of money into the new breed commodity index funds is unsustainable and will come back to haunt us. - James Steel

The commodities or derivatives markets have always been the riskiest gamble out there. That a few institutional investors (read that as "banks") have elected to gamble on oil and other commodities, should be frightening to all Americans.

Our largest banks gamble with depository funds on a daily basis. Most of the time, their gambling pays off as they rape the small investor. But all it takes is one wrong bet and the entire banking industry could collapse in a heartbeat.

Institutional investors should have learned from Nick Leeson's mistake ...

Barings Bank (1762 to 1995) was the oldest merchant bank in London until its collapse in 1995 after one of the bank's employees, Nick Leeson, lost £827 million ($1.4 billion) speculating - primarily on futures contracts.

Every major banking institution in the United States carries dangerously leveraged derivative balances, measured in multiples of their depositors' assets (trillions are at risk).

Steel is a sage, by the way.


No. I think it's the gas peakage.


I never listen to Pickens and you shouldn't either. He is a very wealthy man that has lost his share of money on poor thinking.
