Investment practices, which are described in the article are closely associated with the common actions, aimed at saving by the means of investment. Originally, fuel investment heavily depends on the tendencies of the fuel market correlation, and, if the forecast is negative, the investments are inevitable. Originally, all similar investments are double end stick. When the price increase is forecasted, companies and other fuel consumers aim to create fuel reserves, thus, investing in fuels. Fuel sellers, in their turn, increase prices, as independently of the amounts of investment, fuel is purchased in amounts that are larger than the everyday needs of the consumers.
There is no necessity to work in this sphere for understanding these tendencies, nevertheless, fuel investment is a matter of high priority for most companies, which depend on fuel, and prices for it. Thus, managing investments is the task, which defines further market development, especially in the spheres which depend on the fuel markets. Nevertheless, proper management is hardly achievable, as the fuel market is stable, nevertheless, it is hardly predictable, and, in accordance with Schwartz, Big Oil is pointing fingers at hedge fund managers, who blame commodity index funds, who in turn cite surging demand in China, production losses in Nigeria and Iraq, and hostile regimes in Iran and Venezuela. Fox’s O’Reilly, at least, is clear: He blames all ‘these Vegas-type people [who] sit in front of their computers and bid on ‘futures’ contracts.’
In the light of this statement, it should be emphasized that the investment in stocks, bonds, options, futures, commodities, real estate, is a similar practice. Independently on the origins of sales, investment shapes further market development and is aimed either to shorten expenses or to benefit.
