TST Live Oil Prices

A Visual Collaboration System for Professionals

The purpose of this site is to enable our team, clients, partners and anyone else with professional-level expertise in the drivers of oil prices to use our TST Oil Price Platform to collaborate more effectively when forecasting major movements in oil prices.  (The driver categories include demand, supply, macro, geopolitics, the dollar and financial markets.)

Our collective focus will be on identifying small sets of oil price drivers and causal chains that drive major movements not priced in by the market.  We scale these drivers into 3 swans categories – black swans, gray swans and catalysts – depending upon their probability and impact. (See Swans ApproachWe expect to generate many diverse scenarios that enable multiple contributors to play “what if” at high speed until satisfied their assumptions are consistent and their answers correct. We call these sets of drivers and logic chains TST Market Mover Scenarios.
