Guest Oil price

Today's oil price is -31 USD but I can only buy oil (US Crude) priced at 21.5 USD using spread bet account.  What's happening?

Where is this confusion coming from?

Trading is for the big boys so if retail punters take part they should expect to get sh@fted (and upwards of 70% of them were long on oil yesterday evening hahahaha)

Traders could not give away West Texas Intermediate overnight after a storage squeeze turned holders of the contracts expiring later on Tuesday to forced sellers.

Oh dear, when will retail traders wake up and smell the 'truth' about trading ...

what, you mean that it's a two way auction and that prices can go down as well as up, well I never. If only someone had said something. er, but I did in reply to your very first post on the forum, remember?

When will they realize that they are so consistently wrong that one of the strongest indicators is to bet against them when they have a very strong majority opinion 🤣

In truth any system only needs to be right 50% of the time so long as risk is capped and reward able to run twice as far.

I've heard that some people use technical analysis so badly that they would have better odds by rolling a dice. 

People who are consistently losing (the majority of all retail traders) certainly don't have an 'edge', and I'm sceptical that they will improve over the years - imagine losing money for years on end with nothing to show for it.  Wow.

I'd imagine the investment banks are also going to take a hit from this? ...they are providing hedges for oil producers..

Oh yes, and probably brokers like IG too - they will be keen to pass as much of the costs on to clients as they can.

Hi, I have checked both May, June & July future's charts. Only May future chart reflect current market price (below US$6 as of now, but not open for trade). Whereas charts for June & July future are not reflecting current market price. How can I trade current market price for US Crude?

Hi, it's the term 'current market price' that's the problem. The current market price for IG's May, June and July futures contracts are as on IG's charts which are tracking the underlying exchange prices for those respective futures contracts.

A bigger problem is the Spot price used for the Daily Funded Bet chart. For non brokers displaying prices such as Tradingview or Marketwatch they are simply using the front futures prices (May) for their spot charts but brokers who need to not only to give prices but to actually fill orders such as IG or FXPro they need to consider liquidity in the market so instead of just using the front futures contract as the underlying they instead use a calculation based on the 2 most liquid futures contracts.

The 'current market price' you were referring to was the May futures price but as you found that market was closed to open any trades because it was nearing expiry.

Looks like retail clients are going to have to be a lot more careful before placing bets in future ...

The big Oil ETFs under pressure now,

Dominic Gluchowski @Dom_Gluchowski

"Many retail investors are going long on #USO and other oil ETFs without understanding the risks of contango. On the 5th of May many ETFs will start rolling over their remaining June #oil futures to the July ones. This time the new game of musical chairs might start much earlier."

Evening. Quick question on US Crude DFB. Can the price get lower than $0 as happened with the futures prices yesterday? I suspect not but looking to buy and trying to calculate the downside risk. Relatively new to this so sorry if some of the language is incorrect...

Guest IG US CRUDE

Am I right in thinking the price used on IG Spread Bet for USCrud is a blend of roughly 92% front contract and 8% next month contract? Does this ratio adjust per day as we go through the month?

    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
