Image Preparing for Spikes and Slumps in Oil and Gas Markets Watch on GoTo Webinar

After years of low prices and increasing talk of energy transition, oil and gas made headlines again in 2022 by rising by over 50% and 110% respectively by mid-May. Partly driven by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and further fueled by stimulus and supply chain disruptions that pushed US inflation to 40-year highs, these higher prices reminded many consumers and investors how significant oil and gas still are to powering the modern world and economy. This reminds us that oil and gas together still provide about half the world’s energy, and while OECD oil demand is expected to decline by over 20% over the next 20 years, the rest of the world is continuing to use more and more oil and gas with global demand only expected to peak in the mid-2030s.

In this practical presentation, experienced trader and wealth manager Tariq Dennison introduces how oil and gas markets work, how they impact many other markets, and how you can use both full-sized and micro crude oil and natural gas futures and options contracts for hedging, yield enhancement, or to capture timely profit opportunities.
