About this talk

Covid-19 has put a break on the world economy, with most economies showing extreme contractions in the first quarter of 2020 that could deepen in the second quarter. Oil demand has plummeted in this economic crisis, while supply has been slow to react, creating an unprecedented supply glut, and sending oil prices to historically low levels. Such price levels might be a good entry point to initiate a position and participate in a potential rebound, but investors also need to carefully evaluate the shape of the oil futures curve. The dynamics of investing in commodities through futures contract need to be thoroughly assessed before investing, join our webinar as we explore these complexities and answer the below essential questions. • What do investors need to consider? • What is roll yield? • How to estimate it? • How much of an impact can it have on an investor’s overall return?
