How to trade the oil price: which instruments can you trade to get exposure to this? The future direction in which oil markets will trade is a hot topic, having put in an approximate 55% fall from 30 June 2014 until the end of January 2015. Oil went from being a commodity driven by demand and supply to being one driven by fear and exuberance. We haven't gotten to the exuberance part yet, but tough talk from Saudi oil ministers of stomach-able US$20 per barrel oil prices certainly did a great job of prompting fear from traders; and the significant and swift falls that ensued really changed the landscape of the global economy in a short space of time. So with these dramatic falls having taken place, many traders will now take positions to either benefit from a bounce or benefit from further falls in the price of oil. But what is the best way to express these bullish or bearish crude oil views? Read our latest post from CEO Scott Schuberg for his tips. (VIEW LINK)
