Going further, Oil is a benchmark on the well-being of many Countries, Organisations, Governments, and Peoples.
The opportunity to take positions on Oil exists perpetually, whether the Price is $150 a barrel or $20 a barrel, whether the Price is rising or falling, whether we are in a ‘BULL’ or a ‘BEAR’ Market, and whatever the geopolitical factors are.
We firmly believe that by concentrating on just a handful of products gives us the edge as it enables us to avoid the massive amount of “White Noise” that continuously impacts the market generally and is enormously distracting to traders.
Finally, we develop unique algorithms that do the repetitive work thereby enabling the trader to concentrate attention on those matters that cannot be done by algorithms alone.
