    “Iran has been ridiculed in recent months after
    attempting to showcase its technological
    advances only to face accusations they were
    faked.
    In February, it proudly unveiled a stealth fighter
    jet at a ceremony attended by President
    Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but experts quickly
    expressed serious doubts about whether it could
    even fly.
    A picture of the domestically produced Qaher-313
    apparently soaring over Iranian mountains did
    little to curb scepticism amid claims the plane
    never actually left the ground, but was simply
    doctored using Photoshop.
    Critics also believe Iran's claims that it launched a
    monkey into space could have been faked.
    Scientists in Tehran hailed the mission to send a
    simian 75 miles above Earth and back in a
    Kavoshgar rocket as a success.
    But question marks were raised after the monkey
    presented to the nation as the heroic astronaut
    looked remarkably different than the one which
    made lift off.“


    Let's leave it.

    Sounds to me when he's talking fluctuating oil prices and such, all he's really saying is his machine is predicting future price changes with what he believes is a high level of accuracy. So just like anyone else, he's using computer programs to estimate future trends from past data and a bit of future estimations.
