Trading commodities and precious metals like gold is a popular way of diversifying a portfolio. Here's your tutorial for trading the gold market.
Seasoned traders mitigate risk by diversifying their portfolios. Trading in commodities like gold is considered an excellent way to do this, because gold prices tend to negatively correlate with stock markets.
While currencies lose value over time due to inflation, gold is inflation-proof. Even during the financial crisis that struck global markets in 2008 and after, gold prices were barely affected.
About 95% of gold in the world is held as jewellery or in bullion vaults, and the supply is growing at a very slow pace. The laws of supply and demand mean that its value shows limited volatility
Your analysis leads you to conclude the price of gold will appreciate.
You buy 1 lot (100 oz) of XAU/USD at the price of 1,184.60. One lot equals $100 for every $1 movement in the price of gold.
