Hi! How to start trade in oil?
At first you should find a broker, that fits you.(look at deposit, spread)
Depending on your deposit you may start trade cfd(contracts for difference) or futures.
Lot - if you start first time, take min.lot and don't forget about money management.
Long term or short one? - You should decide for yourself, according to your trader system.
