Well it was only three months ago that it was 80 dollars. And universally the traders and even a lot of investment professionals, everybody played the Iran sanctions trade as wrong as they possibly could because the consensus was it was going to 90, it was going to 100. And the exact opposite happened. President Trump started talking pretty aggressively about lower oil prices. They made some exemptions for countries that they had had some very favorable trade deals recently done with like South Korea where they said we'll give you an exemption they made five or six other exemptions and all of a sudden. The world was awash in oil again and we started it we broke 70, we broke 60, we got down to the low to mid 40s which was almost starting to get to a little bit of an inflection point where a lot of our frackers might come off line. And certainly the real deepwater drillers have a higher breakeven point than some of the shallow water drillers. And now crude has kind of like gathered itself a little bit. OPEC announces they're going to make some cuts. Russia's going to go along with that and now we're grinding a little bit higher for the next couple of weeks trying to find that hopefully try to find that sweet spot where it's good for the whole macro environment of consumers having a little bit extra money in their pocket. But also the energy industry you know not going through a tough economic time because of the price of oil.

Do you understand what's going on in oil?

Tim Anderson, managing director at TJM investments, discussed the oil sector, which has been seeing some tough times lately. 

"Universally, the traders--and even a lot of investment professionals--everybody played the Iran sanctions trade as wrong as they possibly could because the consensus was that it was going to $90, it was going to $100," Anderson told TheStreet.

"OPEC announces that they're going to make some cuts and Russia says they'll go along with it and now we're grinding along with it for the next couple of weeks. Trying to find--hopefully, trying to find that sweet spot that's good for the whole macro environment of consumers having a little bit of extra money in their pocket and also the energy industry, you know, not going through a tough time because of the price of oil. " Anderson said.
