Oil Investing

Oil investing hardly needs an introduction as the petroleum industry has been the single most influential industry in the last century. Yet, talks about peak oil and environmental concerns over fossil fuels have sparked new debates about the viability of oil-based energy and the future of oil investing. Today, the industry remains in a state of flux: on one hand, concerns over running out of conventional fuels have led us scrambling to find alternative sources, on the other hand, the lack of a better solution means that oil continues to be our most important energy source.

The oil investing archive below uncovers the most important factors affecting oil markets and oil stocks. Our in-depth analysis—featuring exclusive charts and data—reveals the best long-term trends in oil investing and identifies the actionable investment opportunities to profit from these trends.
