Supply and Demand

Unlike Gold or Silver, Oil is a daily consumable product. This means that once the product (oil) is consumed, it needs more Oil to replace it. Its usages start from thin films to military-grade parts. Also, it is a huge source of combustible fuel for cars, buses, airplanes and more. The high range of oil usages have grown the demand for this finite commodity. Energy companies are competing to provide an unstoppable supply of oil by extracting 95.2 million barrels of oil per day (this is a reference of 2019).

Geopolitical Events

Even though the companies may try to keep the prices at a fair level, despite the costs, geopolitical events bring some restrictions in the form of taxes and fees. For example, a military conflict in the Middle East, where a large amount of oil is extracted, could cause a cut in the supply and as consequence a price raise.

It was created in 1960, and the participating countries are listed like this: Algeria, Angola, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, & Venezuela.

MAIN CONCEPTS IN FOREX TRADING

Diversification

Commodities are considered a must to a trading portfolio. They return to have a negative correlation with stocks and indices. So, when stocks tend to fall, commodities rise. So, trading in commodities ensures diversification and improves the risk tolerance.

Inflation protection

Inflation usually affects stocks and the currency market, because it depreciates the value of the currency. Commodities, however, are not affected by inflation because they retain their value even in difficult times, because traders and investors turn to commodities as safe havens.

High returns

Commodities are volatile assets. They tend to have major shifts in extreme circumstances like wars for example. A war would cause a rise in the crude oil demand, so its price would go up. This scenario would be very profitable for traders if they chose to invest in energy commodities.
