This is an interactive online course with live presentations and open discussions. The class lasts two hours. Participants will share an online Power Point and live white board explanations.
Participants are expected to have a very basic knowledge of oil markets.
The course will cover physical oil trading deals and how traders look at contracts and clauses, terms and conditions and market practices. The goal of all traders is to make money or minimize losses; the first step is to create a deal. All the terms of the contract contribute to profits or losses. This class will look at a few of those key terms and clauses.
As we look at each subject, we will be asking how a trader uses it and how it can help make money.
