Is there a way to trade oil without trading the commodity itself? I have heard of using stocks like ExxonMobil, but are there any indexes that track oil?

Shares of energy-related companies will move higher and lower along with the price of crude oil most of the time. Stocks and oil move together because rising crude oil prices will boost the profits of energy-related companies. As a result, investors are willing to pay higher prices for the shares of these companies when crude oil prices are high. The relationship is not perfect, of course, but trading stocks like ExxonMobil or Halliburton is one way to play oil.
