Energy Futures & Energy Trading Strategies

Energy futures contracts refer to transactions made on the delivery of fuels, including crude, heating oil, natural gas, and unleaded gas, at an agreed up on price. As energy prices are highly volatile, energy futures contracts can be a viable option for hedgers who want to limit their risk in an energy transaction.

It also represents a high-risk, high-reward investment opportunity for speculators as leverage is generally very high. You can easily control a large contract of fuel with a minimal initial investment. Therefore, it’s recommended that investors only use risk capital as price volatility could result in large profits or losses.
