Frequently Asked Questions

What are the factors that influence precious metal prices?

Like all commodities, the price of precious metals always reduces to a question of supply and demand.

Economic uncertainty from conflict, political unrest, recession, or natural disaster is the most common cause of increased demand. When the economy is strong and the world is politically stable, demand decreases.

Supply could be affected by a new gold discovery or increased mining yield. Impacts could also come from new technologies requiring precious metals like gold or silver to make components. Increased supply without corresponding demand causes prices to fall, while decreased supply (or more competition for current supply) causes rising precious metal prices.

What are the main advantages of trading precious metals?

Precious metals generally rise in value when other assets fall, making it possible to profit during bear markets. They can also serve as a haven for wealth during uncertain times for investors who want to maintain the value of their portfolios.

Gold and silver are generally less volatile than other commodities, so they are attractive for beginner traders who want to employ fundamental or technical strategies without worrying about the volatility of markets like oil and agriculture.

Finally, you can trade precious metals using both fundamental analysis and technical analysis. You can use trading strategies you are comfortable with and even combine charts, news, and economic reports to increase your level of certainty.

Which precious metal is best to trade?

With gold and silver CFD trading, precious metals are accessible even if you have limited capital. Some brokers even offer contracts for platinum and other metals.

Gold is the most popular metal and one of the most popular commodities overall. If you are looking for maximum liquidity, it is the perfect choice.

You can also test your strategy on different markets using a demo account. You can then decide which market is the best match for your chart patterns, indicators, or analysis.

Most investors rely on gold when seeking long-term stability. However, silver typically moves in the same direction as gold, and it can serve as a cheaper alternative in some situations.

Why should I trade precious metal CFDs?

CFDs are ideal for precious metals trading because they are accessible. You can open a position with limited capital and rely on leverage to increase the size of your trade.

With CFDs, you can track the spot market instead of investing in futures or stocks, which are more complex to analyse and require more capital and brokerage accounts within a specific country.

This convenience and accessibility make CFDs attractive for gold trading online for new investors. However, even experienced traders can benefit from the advantages of these derivatives.

What factors should I consider when trading precious metal CFDs?

When trading CFDs, you should consider factors that affect supply and demand.

Fundamental reasons can include uncertainty because of events, economic conditions, or reports.

Certain indicators, such as the Stochastic Oscillator, Relative Strength Index (RSI), and Bollinger Bands, can also offer insight into the supply and demand relationship.
