All the action was in the October contract, which was expiring. It got caught in a short squeeze. So it was either deliver the oil or pay the price of closing the contract. Out date contracts moved only modestly. She predicted we'd open today around $105 on the November contract. It's $107 as I write this.From what I understand from the news last night this response in the market is normal whenever a oil contract ends.
