Trade Metals with XSTrades

Trading metals CFDs (“contracts for difference”) is one of the most common ways to diversify your portfolio and/or hedge risks. Gold, silver, copper, platinum and palladium have been considered as highly valuable and sought after. Their high value comes as a result of their rarity. They are expensive and difficult to mine. Metal CFDs are attractive to speculators due to their high volatility and because traders do not worry about physical delivery and ownership. XSTrades offers to its clients the opportunity to trade metals, energy and soft commodities with market-leading spreads.

How does Metals trading work?

Metals are offered in spot market and their value is determined by demand and supply factors. Supply features related to extraction expenses in the case of precious metals are key on where the price will go.

XSTrades offers you the possibility to invest in a commodity, such as gold without having to physically own the metal. Metals and more specifically Gold demand in general is impacted by broader factors such as global economic outlook, financial cycles, population increase, inflation and even wars. Metals trade against major FX currencies.
