FAQ

Trading precious metals can take many forms: you can buy physical metal to protect your capital from inflation, or you can trade and invest in precious metal derivatives, for example, CFDs.

When it comes to trading CFDs on Gold or Silver (the most common metals), you don’t buy a physical asset but speculate on its price.

There is yet another way of trading metals. It consists of buying or selling stocks of Exchange-Traded Funds which themselves invest in metals.

At RoboMarkets, you can trade metals in the form of CFDs or by investing in metals ETFs.

Supply and demand

The more “industrial” the metal, the more its price is affected by supply and demand. Silver, for example, is heavily used to produce batteries, superconductor applications, and microcircuits.

When a problem in silver mines arises, the supply of the metal lowers, which results in the rising of its price. But when the production line is evolving and helps speed up the mining, it can bring the silver prices down.

Expansion in use

This factor is connected to the first one. When people find new uses for metals in industrial production or when the demand for the products containing metals is growing, it causes the growth in the demand for the metals themselves.

Political and economic uncertainty

Gold and other precious metals are traditionally perceived as safe-haven assets for their long-lasting value. When the world economy crumbles and the political climate affects the fiat money, investors strive to put their capital in precious metals causing their prices to rise.

Strength of the dollar

Metals have inverse dependence on the strength of the US dollar. When the USD is weak and starts to fall, the prices of dollar-denominated precious metals may rise - traders and investors buy metals to keep the value of their currency capital.

At RoboMarkets you can trade metals in the form of CFDs or ETFs. To start trading, you need:

  1. Choose the type of instrument you want to trade

    CFDs are more suitable for short- and mid-term strategies, while ETFs can be used for long-term investments.

  2. Choose and open an appropriate trading account

    You can trade CFDs on metals on all of the RoboMarkets accounts. ETFs are available only on R Trader accounts.

  3. Choose and download a trading platform

    Check our "Download center" for all the necessary files and links.

  4. Develop your trading strategy

    Before investing in any trading instrument, you need to plan ahead. Decide on your strategy and don’t forget about the rules of risk and money management.
