Spot Metal CFDs

Gold & Silver

Precious metals are very popular in the trading world, thanks to their safe haven reputation. Political and economic events influence prices, which cause fluctuations and uncertainty, pushing traders towards more traditionally stable financial assets like gold and silver.

These popular precious metals offer two major advantages: trading opportunities, regardless of the overall state of the market, and safety from inflation.

Why trade Spot Metal CFDs?

CFDs provide easy and fast access to the financial markets, eliminating the need to own the particular asset that you’re trading. In the case of Spot Metals, FXTM offers you the opportunity to speculate on the price movements of gold and silver against the three most traded currencies in the world; USD, EUR and GBP.
