Why Trade Spot Metals?

Metals are commodities that can be traded on the metal exchanges such as the London Metal Exchange (LME), the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and the Shanghai Gold Exchange. Commodities trading used to require time, money and expertise, whereas now, trading has been democratized with more choices for participation. Trading CFDs on hard metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium has become a popular form of derivative trading, allowing investors to speculate on the rising and falling prices of the commodities market.

When traders invest in spot metals, they are basically exchanging a spot metal for a currency. Gold is the most popular commodity offering high liquidity and trading it through CFDs allows for substantial leverage and measured risk. Platinum, palladium and silver are also important due to their industrial applications as well as their use in the manufacturing of jewelry. Platinum is considered the most volatile of the precious metals, while the less known palladium has more industrial uses.
