Financial Services

Nova Energy offers a wide range of financial services to help our clients manage risk. The ability to use the future markets to balance current physical positions create a more stable position for our clients.

Futures and Options Trading

Nova Energy Inc. is classified as an Introducing Broker by RJ O’Brien, the oldest and largest futures brokerage and clearing firm in the United States. This classification allows us to provide financial services of securing buy and sell positions in both futures and options markets.


Hedging is a strategy used by purchasers of physical commodities who seek to reduce their risk by taking an equal “short” position in the futures market of the same commodity. The principle behind establishing equal and opposite positions in the cash and future or option markets is that a loss in one market should be offset by a gain in the other market.
