Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

I wonder if the US would allow the Saudis to buy up US shale fields like they let the Chinese recently? Would be an interesting tactic.

Can anyone advise on the pros and cons of trading Brent on ICE vs CL at NYMEX?

Brent is the world Benchmark. It's the old IPE contract now traded on ICE. (Just FYI the ICE matching engine is in Chicago not London). It is financially settled against an index.

WTI used to be the world Benchmark, but as US production has changed it has become a land locked crude. It's technically a "Light Sweet Crude" contract and is traded on NYMEX/CME. It is physically delievered at Cushing OK.

Hence the fundamentals that drive each are very different.

From a trading perspective, both have similar volumes and liquidity.

Floating Storage piece...Oil Traders Aren’t Dancing the Crude ‘Contango’ This Time Around
Spot rates for the vessels have subsequently soared to fresh seven-year highs, making it even less viable to horde than it was.

Of course the question I ask myself, is why isn't the contango steeper? Is it just that earlier in the year the market expected the drop in prices to be a short sharp drop, while now we expect it to last a lot longer?

I think you'll find it's more analysis than specific trades but if you have some idea's you'd like to discuss post away.
I personally trade quite a lot of Crude, but all spreads & butterflys. There are other's here who do trade crude outrights and I think quite a few who trade crude options. There's also a lot of people that watch this thread to keep themselves informed on crude fundamentals as it can have significant effect on other things they trade.
