Think Markets clients can trade CFDs on gold, silver, platinum and copper.
Trading precious metals is popular as they are seen as inflation-proof and are not subject to the same forces as currency markets, meaning they can act as 'safe havens' for funds in times.
When you take a position on precious metals, you are speculating on the price movement of the underlying asset. Remember, this is a derivative contract – you are not actually buying any metal.
