Frequently asked questions

What are commodities and how do I trade them?

Commodity CFD (Contract for Difference) trading allows you to speculate on the price movements of various commodities without owning the physical assets. Unlike traditional commodity trading, CFDs involve entering into contracts with brokers to exchange the price difference of a commodity from the contract's opening to its closing.

This form of trading covers a wide range of commodities, including hard commodities that are mined (like oil, gold and gas) and soft commodities that are harvested (like coffee and sugar).

Popular commodity categories include:

  • Precious metals: Gold, silver, platinum, copper
  • Agriculture: Coffee, cocoa, sugar
  • Energy: Brent crude oil, WTI oil, natural gas

Like other CFDs, commodity CFDs offer leverage, meaning you can control larger positions with a smaller initial investment. However, it’s important to remember that leverage can magnify both profits and losses.

We offer CFDs on gold, silver, platinum, copper and more on our Commodities page. Precious metals such as gold and silver can be considered one of the first ever traded commodities. Investors and traders generally view gold as a safe haven during economic, political or social uncertainty due to their relatively stable demand and the world’s limited supply. 

See contract expiry dates

The unit of measure for precious metals are in troy ounces. Please refer to the market specification for precious metals to see the contract sizes for Gold, Silver, Palladium and Platinum against the US dollar. 

Check out our Contract Expiry Dates

A ‘rolling’ option or ‘roll yield’ is a type of return in commodities investing that involves the practice of exiting the current position and immediately entering a similar position in the next contract. This allows for traders to take advantage of the difference in the price of shorter-dated commodities, which are closer to maturity commodity contracts and their longer-dated counterparts.

Open a live trading account

Precious metal markets open at (18:00:00 New York time (i.e., 22:00:00 GMT) and you can make trades on XAUUSD, XAGUSD, XPTUSD, XAUEUR and XAGEUR via our trading platforms from 10 seconds after markets open at 18:00:10 NY time (22:00:10 GMT). This is because market participants are often 'guessing' where the price should be in the first few seconds, and some will quote wildly wide prices, while others will choose to wait for someone else to start pricing before they do. Generally, this price discovery process calms down within a few seconds. 10 seconds after the open, our systems can accurately aggregate prices from multiple reputable sources, cross-reference the pricing, and eliminate any potential discrepancies, ensuring that you have the most precise price to base your decisions on.

Our platform invests in cutting-edge technology and data verification methods to provide traders with the most precise and trustworthy pricing information available in real-time. Opening trading from 18:00:10 NY time (22:00:10 GMT) also ensures that even in the busiest or most volatile trading scenarios, all traders receive the most accurate and fair pricing information possible, maintaining market integrity.
