Misconceptions about ETPs are common and one is around an ETP’s available liquidity. Although the ability to trade ETPs intraday is well known, many institutional investors believe ETPs aren’t tradeable in institutional size. The reality, however, couldn’t be further from this belief.

Deflationary risks are increasingly remote. As a result, a precedent may have been set for the eurozone’s safe haven assets to come under pressure in the near future.

Underpinning this is an easing supply glut and a potential OPEC supply cut extension — both of which, we believe, reaffirm the structural bull case for oil.
