Oil Update

Just minutes after my last post, oil is now up almost $5/barrel. Once again, this is "after-hours" trading, not even the usual floor trading on NYMEX.

The explosion in the Minnesota pipeline system that exploded carries 1.5 million barrels per day into the US; that's very significant.

It's hard to tell how extreme of a reaction is going to occur, but I can't see it having a positive effect on the overall stock market. After two huge-gaining days, I think that this news may halt the rally very quickly.
