What Are Commodities

Thanks to greater price movements and easy access, commodities such as gold and silver have become popular trading tools. They help to insure traders from risk and market volatility as they have intrinsic value and are seen as “inflation-proof.” Nonetheless, precious metals can be affected by demand (mostly from the jewellery and automobile industries), supply (e.g., yield decline or political turmoil) and other factors.


How Commodities Trading Works

In commodities trading there is a "buy" price and a "sell" price. The difference between them is the "spread." You will profit if there is increase in the asset's value when you trade at the buy price. On the contrary, you only profit if the asset's value falls when trading at the sell price.


Commodities Trading Example

You think the price of gold will appreciate. You buy 100 oz (1 lot) of XAU/USD at USD1,184.60. One lot is the equivalent of USD100 for every USD1 price movement of gold.

Gold is later trading at USD1,189.70, and you decide to sell. Your profit is USD510.00 (USD1,189.70 closing price - USD1,184.60 opening price x 100 oz).
