    I enjoy your graphs as well. Do you have access to Platt's or Bloomberg tanker or barge rates ? Another good variable to track would be storage or rack rates. Those would be a great inclusion.
     
  4. I have most Platts product/crude prices and I check the liquid tanker routes daily to gauge any excess demand over the available tonnage. The smoke I usually look for is any curve in backwardation.

    Cheap international storage data is hard to come by unfortunately, but I hope to add that to my tool chest eventually.
