Argus Possibility Curves: A data-driven way to measure crude oil price volatility and the balance of risk

- Identify unique trading signals missed by other sources
- Drive systematic trading models using unique, alternative data such as physical transactions data
- Get market insight distinct from what is found in traditional fundamental analysis
