What factors determine oil prices?

Oil price depends on a lot of geopolitical factors and reflects market participants’ sentiment. Countries, big companies, and traders can all be considered the players in the oil market. For example: airline companies trade oil to hedge their risks for fuel price growth, whereas traders perform deals in order to make money from market fluctuations. Oil prices are conditioned by the same factors as the exchange rates of currencies, i.e. political developments, financial events, and even weather.


Our traders or investors can benefit from the fluctuations in the price of stocks, commodities, indices and more, without actually owning the underlying asset through CFD trading contract. Contract for Differences (CFDs) is a contract between a trader and a broker to exchange the differences between opening price and closing price of an instrument. CFDs are the most popular way to trade due to their leverage, flexibility to short sell and cost effectiveness. As a trader or investor, you can also use CFDs as a way of hedging your existing portfolio through periods of short-term and long-term volatility.

We offer different trading contracts: Brent Crude (light low-sulfur crude oil extracted from the North Sea); WTI (lighter low-sulfur crude oil extracted in West Texas).
