Trading Commodities

Commodities like Crude Oil, Brent Oil and Natural Gas are considered the lifeblood of industry. Trading commodities involves speculating on the price movements of these fundamental universal goods, often influenced by factors such as supply and demand, geopolitical events, and economic indicators.

Contract for Difference (CFD) trading allows you to speculate on the price movements of the commodities without actually owning the underlying assets. This opens up a world of opportunities to profit, whether markets are rising or falling.

Engaging in CFD trading within the commodities market offers a host of advantages. Leverage is a standout feature, empowering traders to control larger positions with only a fraction of the total capital required. While this magnifies potential returns, it's essential to bear in mind that losses may also be increased.

CFD trading gives you the flexibility to go long (buy) or short (sell) on commodities, allowing you to capitalise on upward and downward price fluctuations alike. This adaptability proves invaluable in the ever-evolving world of commodities.

When you trade Commodities, you'll own the Oil or Gas itself. Commodity CFDs, on the other hand, allow you to speculate on the price movements without ever owning the asset. A key advantage of CFDs is that you're able to enter contracts for prices falling (going short), as well as rising (going long).

All trading comes with risk and CFD trading is no different. We strongly encourage you to take your time, do your research, and practice good risk management. We have excellent analysis tools to help you.

Leverage is similar to a loan of sorts, based on ratios. For example, if leverage is 1:100, for every $1 you put down as capital on your trade, we'll give you $100. This means that you have access to larger trade sizes without the capital outlay. This can boost any potential profits exponentially, but it may also amplify losses.

All our account types offer Commodities CFDs, but the contract specifications in terms of spreads, lot sizes, swap values and leverage may differ from account to account. Typically, the higher tiered accounts require larger deposits, but offer more favourable conditions.
