Buy Example:
Instrument: WTI
Volume: 1.0
Open price: 98.40
Close price: 99.40
Increment: 0.01
Increment value: USD 1.00

  • WTI - Oil

    WTI Oil

  • Brent


WTI, short for West Texas Intermediate (also known as Texas light sweet) is a grade of oil that is primarily produced in the United States. As such, its supply and demand can often vary considerably relative to Brent crude oil, another oil benchmark that is widely traded. This anomaly often results in unique opportunities for traders, in addition to the opportunities borne out of trading WTI based purely on fundamental supply and demand or the technical factors based on how the WTI price chart is developing.

Brent crude oil is extracted primarily from the North Sea. The price of Brent is used as the benchmark to price 2/3 of the world's oil, and thus is the primary benchmark for pricing oil around the world. The Brent price offered on ThinkForex platforms stems from the futures price of Brent crude for the nearest expiration month as traded on the InterContinentalExchange (ICE) in London.
