Trading Crude Oil with Other Currencies

Futures Measures

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options before deciding to invest in options.

Crude oil has been grinding higher since the start of 2019. This has surprisingly been met with stronger US dollar, and more interestingly, a weaker Euro.

From its lows, crude has rallied 47% in Dollar terms and 56% in Euro terms.

Because of this relationship, we can choose the volatility of our Crude trade by choosing a currency to trade it in. Trading outright crude will have normal volatility, but trading (short) crude in terms of euros (short crude, long euro), will present a more volatile trade.
