How it Works?

Metals are traded in dollars and cents per ounce. For example, when gold is trading at $600 per ounce, the contract has a value of $60,000 (600 x 100 ounces). A trader that is long at 600 and sells at 610 will make $1,000 (610 – 600 = $10 profit, 10 x 100 ounces = $1,000). Conversely, a trader who is long at 600 and sells at 590 will lose $1,000.

The minimum price movement or tick size is around 5 cents. 

 

Why Trade Metals?

Metals is supposed to be a safe haven asset that will retain at least some of its value if other asset classes are falling in value. So the likelihood of equities, bonds and other assets falling in tandem has to be assessed before piling into gold. Most people hold gold as insurance, rather than a belief that the global economy will combust.

Metal holdings provide no income and the price can be volatile, historically holding up best when equities are falling.

Even GoldCore, a provider of physical gold to investors, says most people should no more than 5 per cent of a portfolio in gold, while older or more conservative investors should only have about 3 per cent. However, it says that higher-risk clients who have more of their portfolio in equities tend to hold higher amounts of gold, as well.
