Energy commodities are commonly offered by forex brokers from around the world, including many ASIC-regulated Australian forex brokers. The asset class represents some of the most popular trading assets in the world, such as oil, which holds the position as the most traded commodity. Other tradable energy commodities include natural gas, heating oil, gasoline, and diesel.
When we talk about energy commodities from either ASIC forex brokers or other companies in the forex & CFD brokerage industry, we mainly refer to CFDs that track the price of these commodities. The price is thus not determined by retail traders in the CFD market, but by much larger players that are active at the major futures exchanges in Chicago, New York, and London.
