Introduction To Trading Precious Metals

Although precious metals do have certain industrial applications, they are overwhelmingly considered a store of value.

Precious metals are renowned as safe-haven assets. When traditional financial markets, such as stocks, indices and bonds stop performing, many investors typically park their cash in precious metal investments. Humans instinctively recognise these shiny metals as valuable. Gold played a vital role in the early Egyptian, Lydian, Greek and Roman empires. Throughout history, gold and silver have been used as money. Even though precious metals no longer have an active role in the economy, central banks and large commercial banks continue to hoard them, and active investors use them as a hedging tool.

The Benefits Of Trading Precious Metals CFDs

Trading precious metals using contracts for difference offers numerous advantages over other forms of investing, such as physical ownership.

No physical ownership necessary
CFDs allow you to gain exposure to the precious metals market without having to physically buy and store coins or ingots, and later have to find a buyer to sell them.
Lower cost of investing
You can trade on the real spot price, making it easier to reach profitability, as opposed to paying a premium for physical bouillon, as well as postage or storage costs.
Go long or short
When using CFDs, you’re able to open short positions, which allow you to speculate on prices falling and profit if they do. With hedging, you’re able to go long and short concurrently.
Use leverage to decrease capital requirements
You’re able to leverage your positions as much as 1:20 on precious metals. Using leverage reduces how much of your capital is required to open a precious metals CFD.
