For example, by building a percentage chart in the NetTradeX terminal for two instruments &BRENT/RUB and &GAS/RUB, (Fig. 1), it is evident that in the five year period from 2010 to 2014 investments in Brent crude oil yielded substantially higher returns (+75%) than investments in natural gas (just +4%). Moreover, in the first half of 2012 natural gas had declined more than 60% since 2010.
