One of the best ways to consider investing in foreign oil is to consider looking at an exchange traded fund or a mutual fund that specializes in energy. Energy can mean lots of different things. It can mean oil, oil drilling, foreign oil, domestic oil. It can mean solar and natural gas and a variety of other ways that energy is generated. One of the benefits to investing in a diversified fund that specializes in energy is that you are spreading your risks among lots of different areas rather than putting all of your eggs into one basket to speak. By investing in a diversified fund that specializes in energy you are going to be taking advantage of advances in new types of alternative energy as well as the rise of price in some of our more traditional types of energy. It is important to consider that if you are interested in foreign oil that you make sure that the holdings within those funds include international holdings as well as those housed in the United States. This gives you an international approach to investing which is very important in your diversification process.
