Brent crude rose to $73.63 a barrel gaining 57 cents, West Texas Instrument gained 86 cents at $68.75.

According to Gene McGillian VP of market research at Tradition Energy in Connecticut who said that buyers are coming back, after the 8 percent decline and multi-year highs.
He also said that the easing of production losses and the increase of crude supplies from Saudi Arabia, Russia and other Petroleum Exporting Countries have attributed to the fall in crude oil benchmarks.
Fears by markets of disruption in supply in the Middle East and trade tensions between the U.S, China and Europe has also driven up the price of oil.

A big chunk of the investment industry is in Commodities trading, trading commodities CFDs (contracts for difference) at 24option can afford many benefits to investors and provide a means of capitalising on the supply and demand.
That’s not all ……………..
CFD’s trading allows traders to invest in a much smaller capital outlay as the contract is priced at a set level plus there is the ability to leverage transactions. The value of the underlying commodity is based on a contract between the broker and the buyer and is intangible.
An added advantage of trading CFDs is that it gives you the option to take up larger positions upfront with a smaller capital outlay.
Why does this matter?
So with smaller capital outlay you have the freedom to generate more significant returns vs the traditional commodities investing route where you are burdened by physically handling commodities and a bigger investment.
Look, whether you are trading oil, wheat or any other commodities CFDs frees you of the burden of warehousing, distribution and other costs of physically owning a commodity.
