A common term in the Oil and futures trading spaces, the “Crack Spread” describes the difference in the price of WTI Crude (/CL) and the products that come from refining it. Two such examples of this are Gasoline (/RB) and Diesel (/HO). There are multiple ways the crack spread can be traded in the futures world! Join Pete Mulmat and Tony Battista as they uncover the contracts specs (price, notional value, tick size, contract size) of these products and get an in-depth look at some trading strategies that take advantage of low crude prices, changes in winter weather (seasonality) and consumer demand!
