Metal & Energies

Precious Metals

Due to several extreme price movements, there is an increasing investor interest in trading precious metals. Gold and silver prices have undergone considerable fluctuations caused by political and market sentiment changes, along with the level of supply and demand for these metals.

Unlike most commodities which are mainly dependent on production and consumption levels, gold prices are not. They follow the pulse of political changes and make it possible for gold to function as a hedge against other markets in times of uncertainty. Along with gold, silver is unique: due to its extensive use in various industries, it has a more dynamic price than any other metals.

Gold and silver are both considered to be an asset class, and a great number of investors regard them as stores of value in times of monetary uncertainty, with the anticipation that their price is more likely to withstand economic downturns or crises than any other asset class.

The preference for the purchase and physical ownership of precious metals as long-term investment has increased in recent years. However, it also presents opportunities for those interested in short-term investment because derivatives and exchange-traded contracts are a less capital-intensive and simpler way to take a position on the price movements of gold and silver.

Energies

The most typical feature of energy prices is high volatility, which is the result of numerous political and environmental factors that influence it. Many supply and demand factors also affect energy prices, the strongest which is global economic growth. In times of economic prosperity the demand for energies increases, while a decrease in consumption occurs when economy stagnates.

Beside economic changes, extreme weather conditions can also have a great impact on energies, leading to supply disruptions of crude oil, natural gas, or heating oil. As a result, such conditions can decrease or increase demand for many consumer services related to these energies. Moreover, global energy prices are highly affected by the political instability in some of the world's biggest natural gas fields.

Oil is a globalized, 24-hour market, with its prices in constant motion. This makes it an ideal instrument for day traders who look for fast movements and choose CFDs as the easiest way to trade on oil prices.
