Trade a wide range of commodity CFDs using one of the most popular commodity trading platforms – MT4 and MT5. Commodities are one of the most heavily traded and closely-watched products in global markets. Using both MT4 and MT5, you can trade commodities such as:
Trading commodities gives you an easy and cost-effective way to trade one of the most liquid markets in the world. It also provides instant diversification to your trading portfolio. And because commodities are traded as Contracts for Difference (CFD), you are only trading the price movement and not the physical or underlying instrument.
Using our MT4 Genesis commodity trading platform and smart trading tools, you can track the price of Oil and other commodities as they are traded in different financial centres throughout the day. You can also set alerts on the trading platform to capture the price movements particularly around high-impact events such as crude oil inventory reporting. The Correlation Trader allows you to track the correlation between different asset classes.
* The effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. You should only trade if you can afford to carry these risks.
Below is the full range of commodity CFDs you can trade via our MetaTrader 4 & MetaTrader 5 trading platforms:
|Instrument||Symbol||Spread||Lot Size||Trading Hours (GMT+2)|
|Spot WTI Crude Oil||USO/USD||Variable||100 Barrels||01:00-24:00|

Commodities are usually traded in exchanges that specialise in these products, like the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) or the London Metal Exchange.
Commodity CFDs are traded using standard size lots – e.g. 1,000 barrels of crude oil.
When trading commodities with GO Markets, you are actually trading it as a CFD, which means you are only trading the price movement and not the actual commodity.
This gives you the flexibility to trade a fraction of the standard contract. So, instead of trading 1,000 barrels of oil, you can trade a smaller lot of 100 barrels. This is ideal particularly if you are just starting out in trading commodities, as you can set aside a smaller amount of your trading capital to get exposure in this liquid market.
