Crude palm oil futures down

Palm oil prices sky rocketed in Malaysia during March 2008.
It rose to 4000 Rm /T CPO.
On 17 March the FFB rate was 817RM/T.
In April it was rallying between3500 -3600RM/T CPO ,and 750-790 RM/T FFB.
The same trend prevailed in May and June.
As a natural phenomenon ,the manure cost surged, and the in estate expenses doubled.
In July the price ranges between 740 -608RM/T FFB,3300-3500RM/T Cpo.
Now plantations are in a fix.
The government last year imposed cess ,to bring down the profit and mainly to supplement the shortage of cooking oil.
This July 2008,the government introduced windfall tax.
As the prices are tumbling , the plantations will be put in tight corner.
Fertiliser and expenses will remain stagnant.
Bringing down the already escalated cost of manure and exalted hike in salary and wages are near impossibility.
The Malaysian government should take efforts to stabilise CPO prices.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum

One can say that oil is Tweedledee to dollar's Tweedledum.

Both are driven by their valour of volatility

Both are firm in defeating market manipulation.

Both are determined to mislead forecasters.

Both have no time to listen to analysts.

Both have grabbed the economy.

Both intend to shatter the financials.

Both are incorrigible.

In the event they have unleashed inflation.

There is exuberant exasperation.

Contempt for mankind

Bengaluru, the IT hub of India, and Ahmedabad, the Gujarat capital were rocked by bomb blasts.
The blasts were less severe in Bengaluru than Ahmedabad.
There is a furore in both BJP run state capitals.
A jolt to the equanimity of the two cities.
The innocents have lost their lives.
The plight of their near and dear ones is terrible.
How many are orphaned?
How many are widowed?
Why throw such tantrums?
These atrocities pose a serious threat to the peace of the sub continent.
Condemn blasts.
Spurn terrorists
Save Mankind.

Hot Topic

Inflation is the hottest topic of the year 2008.
Inflation can be defined thus -there is lot of money, but there is no intrinsic value.
A foot ball is inflated, so is a tyre of a vehicle..
If the ball or tyre is pumped beyond its hold,they burst.
The paper money is in wide circulation, it is overspent.
Growth of money is manifold, surpassing the limit
The bubble cannot be subdued, it bursts.
Inflation has settled in.

All features attribute to Gold's envious status.
