Energy fuels the global economy. Access to energy is an important factor in economic growth. Consumers and producers must manage their exposure to the price of energy they need to buy and sell. Traders and investors in turn depend on liquid markets to maneuver volatility swings and generate returns.

Price transparency for the value of energy today and in the future helps create liquidity participants need to transact and manage risk. Knowledge of fundamental data is important to understanding what’s driving prices.
