Energy commodities, sometimes just referred to as “energies”, is a popular asset class offered by lots of forex & CFD brokers, including many social trading forex brokers. This category of commodities is made up of commodities that are used as energy in our daily lives, such as gasoline and oil for transportation, natural gas for cooking and heating, and coal for electricity generation.
Social trading forex brokers usually offer energy commodities as CFDs that can be traded either on the broker’s dedicated social trading platform, or on one of the traditional trading platforms like MT4 & 5. To get the full social trading experience, however, it is often best to use a platform that is designed for that. This usually includes having the option to copy other traders, share your own trades, and get information about how “the crowd” is trading a particular energy commodity.
