Hedge funds have ramped up their commodity bets as prices surged during geopolitical turmoil, and managers with big exposure are reaping sizable profits. The energy sector saw the most net buying from hedge funds last month compared to other groups of stocks, according to Morgan Stanley prime brokerage data. The combination of the buying and energy's outperformance resulted in net exposure reaching a two-year high for the hedge fund community, the data said. Commodities have been a clear winner on Wall Street this year as global demand and the war in Ukraine strained supply. WTI crude oil topped $130 per barrel briefly last week — a 13-year high — during escalated geopolitical tensions.

    (CNN)The Environmental Protection Agency announced proposed changes to its biofuels program Tuesday to spur more biofuel use and crack down on waivers issued to refineries by the Trump administration, notching a win for the biofuels industry and farmers and a blow to oil refineries. EPA is proposing to deny petitions that would exempt small refineries from blending biofuels into their fuel mixes, as obligated by the US Renewable Fuel Standard. Tuesday's announcement comes after a 2020 ruling by the 10th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which tightened restrictions on when EPA could issue biofuel waivers and exemptions. The proposal still must go through a public comment process.It's a notable change from the Trump administration, which increased the number of waivers issued to refineries -- prompting protests from farmers and biofuel producers. "Despite multiple challenging dynamics affecting the RFS program in recent years, EPA remains committed to the growth of biofuels in America as a critical strategy to secure a clean, zero-carbon energy future," EPA Administrator Michael Regan said in a statement. "This package of actions will enable us to get...

    By ANITA SNOW, DAVID GOLDMAN and LISA MARIE PANE, Associated Press A smattering of protests broke out around the country Saturday after former Vice President Joe Biden won the presidency, but they were mostly peaceful after days of tense standoffs and and armed protesters gathering nightly outside offices where workers were counting the votes. In a scene that might portend what is to come, a group of about 50 Trump supporters and a smaller group of marchers carrying Black Lives Matter flags converged on the Michigan State Capitol where they pushed, shoved and shouted at one another in a tense standoff. But within moments of the race being called, a few from both sides broke into prayers and at least one pair hugged. Tensions grew again when more Trump supporters arrived on the scene and BLM members retreated through the growing crowd. So far, though, celebrations and revelry were carrying the day. In Brooklyn, several hundred people were heard erupting in cheers and dancing in the streets and the air was filled with honking horns. There also was a banging...
    President Trump has bucked Joe Biden in the Buckeye State, winning Ohio, according to Fox News, which projected him the winner with 94 percent of the vote tallied. Repeating his success from 2016, Trump won Ohio and its 18 electoral votes, building toward the 270 needed for four more years, despite a push from his Democratic challenger. Trump entered Election Day carrying just a 1 percentage point lead in Ohio, according to RealClearPolitics’ polling average, but made it stand up. Trump won even though Biden was buoyed by an August endorsement from the state’s former Republican governor, John Kasich, in one of several broadsides to strike the incumbent from within his own party. Ohio was part of Trump’s election-making romp through the Rust Belt four years ago, as he enticed working-class voters with a promise of jobs and America-first policies.

    Joe Biden has scored a Virginia victory, playing defense to keep the battleground state blue, according to Fox News. The projected win reels in 13 electoral votes for the Democrat, with 270 the magic number to clinch the presidency. Biden successfully played defense after the party’s previous candidate, Hillary Clinton, won the Old Dominion over then-candidate Trump in 2016. Though Virginia often plays the role of swing state, most polls had Biden picking up where Clinton left off and handily carrying the state. In a possible concession, Trump largely avoided Virginia in the weeks preceding the election, aside from a last-minute Tuesday stop at the Republican National Committee’s headquarters in Arlington, in which he predicted “a great night.” Filed under 2020 presidential election ,  donald trump ,  joe biden ,  virginia ,  11/3/20
