What is Gold Trading & How it Works?
Gold is a rare metal which is often used as money. Thus, trading gold is extremely popular throughout history. Trading gold is usually viewed as a hedge or harbor against economic, political, or social fiat currency crisis, such as investment market declines, inflation, currency failure, war and social unrest.Read More
How it Works?
Gold is 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 on our platform is around 5 cents.
Why Trade Gold?
Gold 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.
Gold holdings provide no income and the price can be volatile, historically holding up best when equities are falling.
Competitive Spreads/Margins on Gold
You can trade on margin and get leverage on your investment of up to 500 times. And because you don’t own the actual gold there are no fees and you can buy or sell instantly whenever the markets are open.
Lower Transaction Costs
Trade Commission Free, no exchange fees, & no clearing fees. The transaction cost is the spread, the difference between the buy and sell price.
Greater Ease of Trading
Gold and Silver are traded alongside currencies on FXRADING.com MT4 Trading Platform, providing you with convenient, intuitive, one-click trading.
Trading in the futures market requires large contracts – $4000 margin to maintain a 100-ounce position is common. In the futures market leverage is usually limited to 25 to 1. With our SPOT Gold & Silver CFDs you can get leverage up to 500 to 1.
