All trading involves risk. It is possible to lose all your capital.
Trading energy CFDs (“contracts for difference”) is one of the most common ways to diversify your portfolio and/or hedge risks. Energy CFD products are attractive to speculators due to their high volatility and because traders do not worry about physical delivery and ownership. XS offers to its clients the opportunity to trade these products with market-leading spreads.
Energy products CFDs such as Brent and WTI, are sold on futures and spot markets. Their value is determined by demand and supply factors. An advantage of such as crude oil CFD is the benefit of trading freely without owning the actual asset. This gives you the flexibility to trade against the price movements without having to buy or sell the actual instrument.
The demand in general is impacted by broader factors such as global economic outlook, financial cycles, population increase, inflation and even wars. In the case of oil, it is also affected by OPEC, who influences the supply side.
In our example, the price moves in your favour and WTI rises to 81.50. You could close your 1 lot position at this level and have a winning trade. But, had the price declined instead moving against your prediction, you may had resulted in a loss.
