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: buying or selling stocks of Exchange-Traded Funds, which invest in metals themselves.

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

Supply and demand

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

When there is an issue with silver mines, the supply of the metal drops, 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 new uses are found for metals in industrial production or when the demand for the products containing metals is growing, the consequence is increased demand for the metals themselves.

Political and economic uncertainty

Gold and other precious metals are traditionally perceived as safe-haven assets owing to their long-lasting value. At times when the world economy is crumbling, and the political climate affects fiat money, investors strive to place 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 begins to fall, the prices of dollar-denominated precious metals might rise – this is when 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 to:

  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. Select and open an appropriate trading account

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

  3. Choose and download a trading platform

  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
