What Is Metal Trading?


Trading in metals usually involves precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum, all of which are scarce substances that have important industrial applications. When trading in metals investors are looking to earn returns from appreciation in prices, as metals do not offer dividends or regular yields.

How to Get Started










How much is one CFD contract of gold worth?

Our gold contract is equivalent to 100 troy ounces or 1 brick of gold. If the market is trading at $1,800 per ounce, the gold contract value will be $1800*100 ounces = $180,000.

Can I trade mini or micro lots on metal CFDs?

You can trade gold (XAUUSD) and silver (XAGUSD) with mini lots (0.1 contracts) and micro lots (0.01 contracts). However, the minimum trade size of Copper (XCUUSD) is 1 contract (1.00 lot in MT4).

Is there an expiration date on your metal CFDs?

There are no expiration dates for metal CFDs offered on MT4. You can hold open positions of Metal CFDs indefinitely; they are offered in spot transactions. However, please note that swap points may be charged on your open positions according to your daily trading volume.

Are metal CFDs a leveraged product?

Yes. Our metal CFDs are leveraged products, which allow traders to speculate on the rise or fall of metal prices for a fraction of the cost of the underlying market.

Are there overnight holding costs on metal CFDs?

Yes. A swap charge will be applied to an open position if trades are held overnight (over 00:00 MT4 server time). The rates may also vary depending on the size and direction of the trade and underlying interest rate.

On Wednesday nights, Triple swap will be charged to the account to settle trades over the weekend where no swap rates have been charged due to market closure.
