Commodity CFDs are contracts for difference that allow traders to speculate on the price movements of various commodities without having to own the underlying assets. Commodities are physical goods that are typically traded on global markets, such as oil, gold, silver, natural gas and soft commodities like wheat and soy.
Trading commodity CFDs involves buying or selling contracts that represent a certain quantity of the underlying commodity, with the profit or loss being determined by the difference in price between the opening and closing positions.
Here are some key points to consider when trading commodity CFDs:
Commodities are traded on margin – choose your preferred leverage up to a 500:1* maximum
We give you tight, competitive spreads across our full range of commodities
Low latency and efficient price feeds mean you enjoy quick trade execution
Compared to other instruments commodities attract a much lower cost, so you trade with less expense
Our mobile MT4 & MT5 trading platforms allow commodity trading across your preferred devices
You can take long or short positions on commodities as you only trade the price movements
With GO Markets you access commodity trading platforms among the most popular: MT4 and MT5. And using our MT4 Genesis platform and smart trading tools, you can track commodity prices in financial centres across the day. You can also set alerts to capture price movements, particularly around high-impact events like crude oil inventory reporting.
*With leverage both gains and losses are magnified. You should only trade if you can afford to carry these risks.
