Spot energies refer to the group of energy commodities such as Brent, WTI and Natural Gas. These three together are among the most important resources on this planet and directly impact energy generation activities around the globe.
The most actively traded commodity on a global scale is Crude Oil and it is highly volatile. This makes it a great choice for those willing to engage in short-term trades as the fast price movements provide them with ample profiteering opportunities. On the flip side, the high volatility also makes it riskier than other trading instruments. The high volatility of the energies market can be attributed to the direct impact of both small and large global events on the supply. Economic growth/collapse, wars and minor conflicts, political instability, extreme weather conditions, and OPEC decisions (most important), are all factors that affect the price of energies commodities.
