What is Energy Trading?
Commodity and energy trading is the buying and selling of a variety of hard and soft instruments such as oil, gas, metals (Gold and silver), cocoa, coffee, wheat and sugar. Commodity trading is quite older than the financial markets, dating back to much earlier times. Over the years, these assets have gained popularity among investors and traders as a means of diversifying their portfolios and hedging against inflation. Also, the high volatility of the commodity markets makes them attractive to traders and investors looking to score big from the significant price fluctuations.
