Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, I've read many of those studies.  I don't think those studies say what you think they say.  But that's not the issue at hand anyway.  

You stated the picture was worth a thousand words, and that there was a perfect correlation between QE programs and oil prices -- implying that it was obvious.  I said it was not, as anything with functioning eyes should see if they actually look at it.  I then asked for statistical evidence.  You didn't provide any.

This is just gibberish, Chris.

Where do statistics even come into this?

I am referring to QE programmes: not to the flow of QE within those programmes.

If you think I am saying that oil prices react to every variation in the flow of QE then you are under a misapprehension.

I'm sorry, but you are the only person I have come across to date who cannot see - just by looking at the chart - that when QE programmes begin or soon after, the oil price rises, and when the programme ends - or just before, then prices fall.

But each to his own.
