WTICrude/BrentCrud vs WTISpot/BrentSpot – What’s the difference?
You can trade four different Energy instruments at FXChoice:
WTICrude and BrentCrud are expiring contracts that closely follow the real nature of the market. They have expiration dates and rollovers, which can cause confusion for newbies.
WTISpot and BrentSpot are non-expiring synthetic spot contracts designed to eliminate the process of closing and reopening trades every month and do not have expiration dates and rollovers. They work by streaming prices to you that are based on the front (current) month and the next month.
