FEEM seminar on "Oil price and financial speculation"



The recent sharp volatility in oil prices raises a number of questions over how the price of oil is determined and the complex dynamics between the physical and financial markets. The analysis of the determinants of real oil prices in the last three decades,  and the study of the relationships between trading activity and price volatility in energy futures markets - at the heart of the ongoing debate about the impact of speculators on energy prices - are the focus of this week's FEEM seminar, given by  FEEM associate researchers Andrea Bastianin and Carlo Morana.
