Trading commodities and precious metals like silver is a popular way of diversifying a portfolio. Here's your tutorial for trading the silver market.
Like other commodities and precious metals, silver is not subject to the same economic and market forces as other assets - where currencies can lose value due to inflation, silver's value is dictated by other forces.
Another reason why silver is popular is that around half of the demand for silver is derived from the needs of industry, in particular the technology sector - which keeps prices up even when investment demand is low.
Like other precious metals, silver is often seen as a refuge in times of financial stress as it is not subject to the same forces as conventional assets.
Let’s suppose that your technical analysis on the daily chart of silver indicates a high probability for the price of silver to fall.
You sell 1 lot (5,000 oz) of XAG/USD at the price of $16.38. This position size equals $50 profit or loss for every 1 cent movement in the price of silver.
