Hot news flash from Shotgun Airways : Arch-Shaman Crazy Eddie has woken!

It was only for a short while, long enough to renew his blood alcohol levels, change his sleeping socks and whisper the long awaited wisdom gathered during his long siesta :

'I dreamed that fuel was $340, and it was good, then a large green crow flew over and called me Doris.'

Pundits are now predicting a rapid and astonishing fall in fuel prices to at least $340 in the near future :

Shotgun Airways CEO brique was moved to say : 'Your guess is a good as mine, Crazy Eddie has been right in the past, but also very very wrong.'

Crazy Eddie then fell asleep once more, alas, on the runway thus causing the cancellation of an incoming non-Shotgun Airways flight. CEO brique ordered champagne all round and tucked a cigar into Eddies pocket.

At this point rolling 10% hedges 12 months each will protect you from anything CRAZY,(I'm doing 1 a month) but give you room to grab a few if it drops alot...

at this point I'm more concerned about it going UP then Down, and I have a feeling it will be doing more UP then Down...

Damn hell yes! You should rather expect 600 dollars again in the next weeks/months than 100 dollars... My hedge is at 580 dollars, still two months to go...

And 9 days ago did brique post :

quoting Crazy Eddie:

'I dreamed that fuel was $340, and it was good, then a large green crow flew over and called me Doris.'

Pundits are now predicting a rapid and astonishing fall in fuel prices to at least $340 in the near future :

At 294 after thinking it couldn't get lower than 300 and hedging at 328.

This thread could easil be rename fuel costs on the fall.

I always do either 100% or 0% hedges: With a 100% hedge, I am either angry (if it doesn't work) or happy (if it works). With a 50% hedge, for example, I'm either angry (if it doesn't work) or angry (since i could've hedged more than 50%)... :p
