It starts with the physical oil markets, moving on to forward and futures markets, followed by options and swaps.
Administration Covers the essential 'back-room' activities without which oil trading could not continue. It includes practical material on operations and logistics, credit control, accounting, taxation, contracts and regulation, and controlling financial risk, providing a unique guide to the subject.
