Crude oil is composed of hydrocarbons, organic compounds and trace amounts of metal. It’s composition reflects in its value and the most important characteristic is it’s sulfur content, which defines the oil as sweet or sour with heavy to light density. The higher priced crudes are light (lower density) and sweet (low sulfur amounts). Light sweet crude oil is processed by refineries at a lower cost as it requires less energy to produce. Brent crude is a light, sweet oil, ideal for refining diesel and gasoline. It is the major price benchmark for oil purchases around the world, accounting for two thirds of the world’s internationally traded oil because of it’s low density and sulphur content. Brent crude is traded on the ICE exchange. WTI (West Texas Intermediate) is a heavier crude oil and the benchmark for all oil in the United States. WTI is traded on the NYMEX exchange.

When you trade energy CFD’s (contract for difference) you don’t actually take possession of it, but instead execute a contract for the difference in value between your entry and exit price. Please note that EFXglobal may change margin requirements during periods of extreme weather conditions, political instability or sudden adverse news events. The margin requirement for CFD’s is not based on the leverage of your trading account, instead it is calculated according to the following: (Lots) x (Contract Size) x (Opening Price) x (Margin Percentage)
