Why trade precious metals?

What are precious metals?

Physical and Contracts for Difference (CFDs) gold and silver, traded as spot or day trades are the most popular precious metal markets, due in part because they are often used as a hedge against inflation and appreciate investment value during volatile movements. Their trading prices are public and transparent, so investors may confidentially research market quotes at any time.

Non-renewable, rare metals

Gold and silver are rare, non-renewable metals serving as a symbol of wealth. Even with the advent and continued use of paper-based currencies, precious metals maintain their value and popularity. With gold and silver used as reserves or “safe havens”, these precious metals continue to provide excellent trading opportunity.

Safe haven investment

Precious metals are often seen as safe haven investments during times of war and turmoil. The 21st century is a turbulent century of wars, terrorist attacks and nuclear crises with continued unrest in the Middle East. As the world plunges into panic, currency is exchanged for gold and/or silver by investors and the reverse as the crisis passes.

Value-maintenance and Appreciation

Precious metals such as gold and silver are effective shields against depreciation of the US Dollar. In addition, they have great potential appreciation. Unlike banknotes or bonds that may be worthless overnight, precious metals are intrinsically valuable for their actual worth.

Investments portfolio

Precious metals pricing is relatively independent, not influenced by other investments instruments. Therefore, investing in precious metals may help reduce the integral investment risk.
