Trading in energy commodities is something that used to be available to the professionals only, but has in recent years gained popularity in the independent retail trading community as well. And as with all trading, it is extremely important to ensure you are getting the lowest spreads possible when trading energy commodities.
Following increased interest from traders, low spread forex brokers have also jumped on the trend and started offering energy commodities. Among the most traded energy commodities today are brent and WTI oil, natural gas, and gasoline. However, the market for oil remains the largest of them all, and oil is in fact the most traded of all commodities. As most traders will know, the oil market is therefore where the lowest spreads are found.
