Summer is already the most expensive time of the year. Your electric bill goes up. Gas prices go up. Everything seems to get more expensive.
But instead of freaking out every time you see the price at the pump, maybe learn how to profit from energy prices — especially during inflation.
The Federal Reserve has been downplaying inflation for a while now. But to me, the picture couldn’t be any clearer.
If food and energy are the two biggest indicators of inflation… and food, gas, crude oil and energy are all skyrocketing… How is this not inflation?
Look at crude oil, for example. It has been rising ever since it briefly dipped into negative territory — something unheard of for a commodity — during COVID-19. But it actually started at around $10 a barrel.
From there, in about a year… it has shot up to nearly $75 a barrel. That’s huge.
If that’s not inflation, I don’t know what is. Now, let’s move on to something more important… how you can profit from energy prices.
The Fed has said it wants to keep inflation around 2%. Well, it’s been lower than that mark for the past several years, so now, the Fed is allowing it to climb higher.
And that’s having a direct effect on energy prices. People are paying higher electric bills, pump prices keep climbing, it’s expensive. Even for summer. So I get asked all the time, “How can I profit? What can I do? How do I get in?”
Well, there are a lot of opportunities to profit from soaring energy prices.
One option is pretty simple: buy the futures, which would be directly buying crude oil or gasoline.
But for those of you who aren’t interested in that, you could turn to the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLE), an ETF that tracks the energy sector in the S&P 500… and is very liquid.
What should you look for if you want to trade the XLE?
