Which energy CFDs can I trade with FXTRADING.com?
Three energy CFDs currently on offer - Western Texas Intermediate (WTI), Brent Crude (BRENT) and Low Sulphur Gasoil (GASOIL).
What is the difference between WTI and Brent Crude oil?
WTI (Western Texas Intermediate) is usually sourced from US oil fields and is considered the benchmark for US-produced crude oil. At the same time, Brent is based on crude oil extracted from the North Sea and is considered an international standard.
What is Low Sulphur Gasoil (GASOIL)?
Also known as red diesel, low sulphur gasoil is widely used in off-road vehicles, tractors and horticulture machinery.
What currencies are WTI and Brent traded in?
Despite geographical differences, both WTI and Brent are priced in US dollars. Brent is mainly sourced from the North Sea, and WTI is pumped from North American oil fields.
Why are oil prices sensitive to geopolitical events?
Oil is used for energy and has a major input to the global economy. Any supply or demand threat, whether due to wars, production cuts, weather etc., can directly impact oil prices.
