Energy trading is the trading in CFDs based on major commodities used for energy in the world. In many ways, we can say that energy is what fuels the modern economy, as it is necessary for almost everything we do, including transportation, heating, cooking, construction, etc.
The market for energy commodities also represents an alternative to stock indices and forex, with its own unique fundamental drivers. The asset class has therefore become popular not only among retail traders, but also among major investment funds and professional trading firms. Today, oil is by far the most traded energy commodity, with many large companies involved solely in the trading of this commodity as a financial asset.
