JOSH LIPTON: The price of Brent crude on the rise again here. Reaching $91 a barrel in today’s trade. So this has been interesting, Julie. Prices moving now back up to their highest level really in months. Brent is up about 4% this week, and we different sort of factors driving this– strong economy. Obviously, we were just talking to Michael about the jobs report we got today. Blockbuster OPEC production cuts. But also, of course, geopolitical conflict is also front and center as well.

JULIE HYMAN: Yeah, and it’s become more– I mean, at this point, as we know, when you have a geopolitical conflict that then goes on for a little while without any meaningful change, it doesn’t affect consistently necessarily the price of an asset, but this week, when we had speculation and reports out of Israel that it was anticipating some sort of retaliatory attack from Iran, that’s then the, you know, X factor or the latest catalyst that helped push prices higher.

We did speak to some folks this week who said there’s a lot of speculation in the oil market as well. So you have to keep that in mind. It looks like we’re setting up for the best week for WTI since February 9th in terms of the magnitude of the gain and the best for the XLE. That’s the energy ETF going back to January 26. But there was still underperformance on the part of those energy stocks versus the actual commodity. That’s something we’re going to talk about a little bit later in the show. But it is something that the, um, energy stock bulls have been pointing out here.

JOSH LIPTON: Yeah, it is a question, and we are talking to a smart strategist later about this– about at what point, Julie, it becomes more of an issue for the Fed. Like if you have Brent at $91. Is it– is it $95? Is it $100 and sort of– and staying there? So we’ll– we’ll ask some smart people later about that.

JULIE HYMAN: Well, we just talked to Michael Gambon. He said it is something to keep an eye on.
