    You can’t actually buy shares in crude oil itself but you can buy shares in Oil companies. If you want to trade the ups and downs of the oil price then you’ll need to buy and sell oil futures. Easiest way is to spread bet the oil price via a spread betting company.

    You can’t buy shares in crude. You have to buy futures contracts. The contract will however have a date on it. If you do not sell the contract before that date is reached prepared to have $1000 worth of crude oil in front of your house.
