NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- I was speaking with Brittany Umar about the announcement of the new Federal Reserve chairman, Janet Yellen, and what it might mean for oil.Yellen is perceived to be the most dovish candidate available to follow Ben Bernanke into the role of Fed chair. Most analysts expect her to not only continue the accommodative policies the Fed has been applying into the monetary markets, but perhaps to be even more aggressive with further bond purchases or even more "dark science" methods to keeping interest rates unusually low.
