Trading Metals

Precious Metals, such as Gold and Silver, are long sought-after assets, due to their intrinsic value and historical significance. Trading in Metals on Alpari involves speculating on their price movements, which can be influenced by factors like economic conditions, geopolitical events, and inflation trends.

Contract for Difference (CFD) trading allows you to speculate on the price changes of these Metals without needing to physically take ownership of them. This approach offers a flexible way to profit from both upward and downward price shifts.

CFD trading offers great opportunity for those looking to participate in the Metals market. One of the key benefits is leverage, which allows you to control a larger position size with a smaller amount of capital. This magnifies potential profits, but it's important to remember that it can also increase the risk of losses.

CFD trading on Metals provides the flexibility to go long (buy) or short (sell) on Gold or Silver, allowing traders to capitalise on both upward and downward price movements. This versatility is a key advantage in the ever-changing precious Metals landscape.

When you trade Metals, you'll own the Gold or Silver itself. Metals 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 increase losses.

All our account types offer Metals 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.
