Our philosophy: Oil markets explained

Global energy markets function as a web of inter connections. The price of oil is affected not only by supply and demand fundamentals, but also by economic growth, geopolitics, demographics and the financial markets, to name a few major influences. The price of oil in turn impacts not only entities engaged in the production, supply and consumption of the commodity, but also those involved in the downstream petrochemicals chain and several other related activities. Fuel and petrochemical prices directly affect industrial and individual consumers and on a broader level, the country's economy. Individuals and organizations may also be directly or indirectly exposed to oil price movements as a result of their investments in stocks, equities, ETFs and bonds of oil and gas or related sector companies. This creates the need for an expert's world-view, articulated succinctly and clearly, on what is moving oil prices and shaping critical market dynamics. No trading jargon, no complicated technical formulae and no esoteric economic or market theories that only a few can understand. Vanda Insights, a Singapore-based boutique venture, was born out of the conviction that the oil market needs to be viewed through expert eyes capable of taking in the fundamental as well as the technical factors at play, but explained to anyone and everyone wanting to understand it in the most logical, straight forward and concise manner.
