Here is what's new today on INK Ultra Money. Canadian Insider Ultra Club members have access to both premium and free content all the time.

1. The straw that broke the camel's peg - Real Vision

At Real Vision, they believe that from crisis comes opportunity. That is why they have have been laser-focused on oil and energy markets and why they have brought back Alexander Campbell, CIO and founder of Black Snow Capital.

He makes his case that the Saudis may be forced to reevaluate the long-standing peg between the Saudi Riyal and U.S. Dollar and lays out two different ways to play the setup.
