Book Description

Energy Trading and Risk Management. A Practical Approach to Hedging, Trading and Portfolio Diversification

A comprehensive overview of trading and risk management in the energy markets

Energy Trading and Risk Management provides a comprehensive overview of global energy markets from one of the foremost authorities on energy derivatives and quantitative finance. With an approachable writing style, Iris Mack breaks down the three primary applications for energy derivatives markets – Risk Management, Speculation, and Investment Portfolio Diversification – in a way that hedge fund traders, consultants, and energy market participants can apply in their day to day trading activities.

Moving from the fundamentals of energy markets through simple and complex derivatives trading, hedging strategies, and industry-specific case studies, Dr. Mack walks readers through energy trading and risk management concepts at an instructive pace, supporting her explanations with real-world examples, illustrations, charts, and precise definitions of important and often-misunderstood terms.

From stochastic pricing models for exotic derivatives, to modern portfolio theory (MPT), energy portfolio management (EPM), to case studies dealing specifically with risk management challenges unique to wind and hydro-electric power, the bookguides readers through the complex world of energy trading and risk management to help investors, executives, and energy professionals ensure profitability and optimal risk mitigation in every market climate.

Energy Trading and Risk Management is a great resource to help grapple with the very interesting but oftentimes complex issues that arise in energy trading and risk management.

Oil energy ETFs are the most popular exchange traded funds. But there are also other energy sources and they can be traded using some exchange traded funds.

I discussed the basic oil ETFs in previous article and now I would like to show other possible options for commodity trading strategies.

Natural gas commodity ETF

This energy commodity could be a big substitution to the oil in every sector of world economy. The United States have huge reserves of natural gas and starts to explore them. The USA, formerly biggest importer of energy commodities, are going to be the larger exporter of natural gas.

It is going to change the economic situation in the world a lot. Some of my Global macro themes use Natural gas etf strategies and I monitor this commodity exchange traded fund in my list of ETFs regularly.

UNG fund. The investment objective of UNG is for the changes in percentage terms of the units’ net asset value to reflect the changes in percentage terms of the price of natural gas delivered at the Henry Hub in Louisiana, as measured by the changes in the price of the futures contract on natural gas traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange

Uranium ETF

The uranium is important source for nuclear power generators. There are many newly built nuclear power stations and many new plants are going to be finished in the coming years. The demand for an uranium will be huge.

It is possible to trade this commodity using uranium energy ETFs based on portfolio of companies doing business in this sector. The PKN and URA exchange traded funds are also included in my list of ETFs.

Exchange traded funds now track also such a category like an alternative energy sources. It is possible to track companies doing business in wind or solar energy generation.

One thing all commodity price forecasts have in common is they tend to be very poor at predicting what prices will be in the future, despite this being ostensibly their sole purpose. Many forecasts are based on past market activity, but this has not proven to be terribly effective at divining future price movements.

In this video from the US Association for Energy Economics conference recently held in Austin, Texas, Roger Stibolt, Managing Director at investment banking house Galway Group discusses some of the ways he approaches natural gas trading and price forecasting.

No energy trading desk should be without it. - Ethan L. Cohen, Senior Director, Utility and Energy Technology, UtiliPoint International Inc.

Energy markets are much more volatile than other commodity markets, so risk mitigation is more of a concern. Energy prices, for example, can be affected by weather, geopo9litical turmoil, changes in tax and legal systems, OPEC decisions, analysis' reports, transportation issues, and supply and demand - to name just a few factors. Tom James's book is a practical guide to assessing and managing these risks.

Coming from a financial background myself, it's good to finally find a book that can bring a better understanding to the field of energy commodities. - Carl Larry, Vice President Citi Energy Global Commodities

Energy commodities trading strategy example

Energy commodities trading strategy exampleEnergy commodities trading strategy example

Energy commodities ETF shares are part of the global list of exchange traded funds available for trading. These commodity ETFs offer another opportunity to invest into commodities or use these energy ETF shares for active investing or trading which is what I do.

There are several different trading strategies to trade energy ETFs. Some are based on fundamental opinion, anothers on technical analysis. I like to have some Global macro overview about energy commodities I create personally for my usage in a portfolio of position trades.

But to decide what energy exchange traded funds to trade or to decide whether to go long or short on the oil ETF I use technical analysis . This unique combination of global macro analysis with technical analysis is the base for trading methods and portfolio strategies I use in my investment approach in position trades that are used for mid-term time horizons like few months.

My swing trades that I trade in my active portfolio last only a few days or weeks and are based on technical analysis only. This technical part of my stock market strategies is based on reading of stock charts and practical usage of technical analysis, especially relative strength. Here are steps to make profitable trades with energy based ETFs.

Check situation in commodity complex

I use a broad based commodity fund with symbol DBC tracking general Commodity index.

Check ETF shares tracking commodities

like Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Heating Oil

DBE Energy commodities fund is a good option for this task.

Check individual commodities ETF shares and their situation

Compare them with the charts checked in the previous steps and decide what is the best way to trade them.

Commodity online trading info that we can see on the charts

The global commodities fund is breaking support level. There is plenty of space for a possible down move. It looks like commodities are going to be starting a downtrend. So we will prefer short sell trades.

Individual trade setups for specific exchange traded funds then could be based on stock charts pattern and other stock technical analysis tools.

PIDILITIND cmp 229 target expected 240 EDL cmp 82 target expected 90
