Oil price negative

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Can anyone tell me if the oil price going negative means that the IG price I pay can fall bellow zero?

For eg if say I have a long position at £1 a point on crude and it was at 2000, I would expect to only lose a maximum of £2000 if no stop loss was set. Does going negative mean it can fall bellow zero?

This may be a silly question to most but I don't trade oil.

Hi, yes it is possible for the spot price to fall below zero due to the way the spot price is calculated using 2 futures prices. See a more detailed reply from IG in this thread linked below page 5 (about half way down);

More importantly, where can I sign up to get paid to receive some barrels of oil?

    • The Covid Hoax continues. Everything centers on the PCR test and it's deliberate misuse. A PCR of 25 cycles identifies the infectious with a minimal amount of false positives, the more cycles you do the more false positives are included. Fauci himself has said 35 cycles and above most results are false positives for infectious material. Western countries are running the PCR test at 45 cycles which is mathematically known to give 90%+ false positives. Govt and health officials know this. Groups in Portugal have joined groups in Italy and the UK in starting legal action against the fraudulent misuse of the PCR test used to justify continuing lockdowns and social restrictions. Meanwhile new research from the US finds: “All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary,”  Just as has already been found in many other countries (see recent posts above for data from Sweden and Ireland).  https://web.archive.org/web/20201126223119/https://www.jhunewsletter.com/article/2020/11/a-closer-look-at-u-s-deaths-due-to-covid-19  
    • Doh! Maybe I should have thought it through a bit more aha. Not been having much luck instraday atm, so was going to try and take advantage of moves that last multible days, and so was wondering about overnight charges. But like you said, it's proably cheaper than the spread anyway. Cheers
