Forget AMC and GameStop, the hottest trade for hedge funds now is oil

While a lot of the market’s attention is focused on volatile stocks like AMC and GameStop, many hedge funds are zeroing in on another trade: oil.

The commodity has been on a tear with surging demand as the global economy reopens.

Brent is at a two-year high and WTI crude is at levels not seen since October of 2018.

Maglan Capital, a New York based hedge fund, has the commodity as its top position. In December of 2020 when oil was in the high $30s, just as the FDA was issuing emergency authorization for the use of vaccines, co-founder David Tawil correctly predicted prices would double. 

He’s now calling for oil to hit $100 dollars a barrel by the end of the year.
