Introduction To Trading Energy Commodities
Economists believe money makes the world go round. Most other business people would argue that oil and gas are what powers the global economy.
Oil is the foundation of consumerism; whether it’s making plastics, powering manufacturing plants or fueling ships and planes, energy is what powers progress. The price of energy products is considered a global benchmark for economic prosperity. Because of how essential oil and gas are to the worldwide economy, they are among the most liquid trading assets in the world and traded in all major financial hubs and time zones. The price of oil can experience volatility not just because of fluctuations in demand, but also due to logistical or geopolitical factors affecting supply. Oil is produced in only a few regions of the world and is incredibly complex to extract and refine.
