EMI's Physical Crude Oil and Products Trading

This highly interactive and intensive two-day physical crude oil and products trading course will provide the attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the U.S and international physical oil trading business from the perspective of both the trader and the supply analyst. DTN’s unique program delves into the details of the physical market on day one including discussions on the fundamentals, major crude oil and products markets, characteristics of the markets, operations and logistics, freight trading and distinct differences between the physical and financial markets.

On day two the program focuses on making money. Course attendees will be exposed to arbitrage (spread) trading as well as outright (long/short) trading opportunities. DTN will present approaches that work for physical trading as well as valuing and relating both physical crude oil and products back to the refinery gate.
