Trading spot metals allows investors to take long or short positions on gold and silver as a great way to expand their portfolio. Offering spot metals to our clients ensures traders have access to the precious metals at the most up to date and accurate prices. Spot gold is more valuable than spot silver, but they both experience strong movements.
Trading spot gold is often used as a safe haven investment and used to hedge against inflation, making it a good option during times of economic uncertainty. Competitive spreads are offered on all spot metals and currency crosses, which you may also practice trading on a free demo account before trading spot metals on a real account.
Why trade metals?
- Completely independent of other markets
- Great inflation hedge

Leverage allows investors to take opportunities in the market that they would have never had before. By increasing a trader's buying power up to 200 times, it allows even the small investors to trade alongside the big ones.
Spreads are the initial cost of trading, so it is important to choose a broker with low spreads.
