Energies is the term used for commodities we use as energy in our daily lives, including for things like transportation, cooking, and heating. These commodities are among the most traded commodities in the world, and include everything from WTI and Brent oil, to natural gas, gasoline, heating oil, and other things. These energy commodities are offered to traders by a large number of ECN forex brokers and other financial institutions around the world.
CFDs are an ideal way to trade energy commodities for most independent traders since they come with much lower margin requirements than futures contracts. Meanwhile, leverage for commodity CFDs is still quite high in many countries, which makes it possible to trade with fairly large position sizes even with a small trading account.
