What is Metals Trading?
Precious metals such as gold (XAU), silver (XAG), and platinum (XPT), as well as base metals such as copper, are globally traded across the commodities market. They are frequently traded on spot contracts (physical trade and delivery) and on future contracts (online traded without physical ownership).
Benefits include high economic value and consistency, despite of economic conditions, making them ideal short-term and long-term investments. Precious metals act as stores of value, allowing traders to hedge their portfolios against other volatile financial markets. They are very popular hard commodities for portfolio risk management during times of inflation or economic or political instability.
