Trade a wide range of commodity CFDs with leverage on the powerful and most popular commodity trading platforms – MT4 and MT5. Commodities are one of the most heavily traded and closely-watched products in global markets. Trading commodities gives you an easy and cost-effective way to trade one of the most liquid markets and also allows you diversify your trading portfolio. And because commodities are traded as Contracts for Difference (CFD), you are only trading the price movement and not the physical or underlying instrument. Using both MT4 and MT5, you can trade commodities such as:
* The effect of leverage is that both gains and losses are magnified. You should only trade if you can afford to carry these risks.
Using trading platform and smart trading tools, you can track the price of oil, precious metals and other commodities as they are traded across different global financial centres throughout the day. You can also set alerts to capture the price movements particularly around high-impact events such as crude oil inventory reporting on your MT4 or MT5 trading platform.
Below is the full range of commodity CFDs you can trade through our MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 trading platforms:
|Instrument||Symbol||Spread||Lot Size||Trading Hours (GMT+3)|
|Spot WTI Crude Oil||USO/USD||Variable||100 Barrels||01:00-24:00|
|Spot Brent Crude Oil||UKO/USD||Variable||100 Barrels||03:00-24:00|
Commodities are usually traded in exchanges that specialise in these products, like the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) or the London Metal Exchange.
Commodity CFDs are traded using standard size lots – e.g. 1,000 barrels of crude oil.
With GO Markets, when trading commodities, you are actually trading it as a CFD, which means you are only trading the price movement and not the actual commodity.
This gives you the flexibility to trade a fraction of the standard contract. So, instead of trading 1,000 barrels of oil, you can trade a smaller lot of 100 barrels. This is ideal particularly if you are just starting out in trading commodities, as you can set aside a smaller amount of your trading capital to get exposure in this liquid market.
You can easily trade Gold, silver and other metals through our MT4 and MT5 platforms. Gold and silver are two of the most commonly traded metals. When trading with MT4 & MT5, gold, silver and other commodities can be traded with ease, reliably and with the right informative tools.
Trading precious metals on the friendly MT4 & MT5 commodities platform involves trading pre-set lot sizes. For gold, a lot size is equivalent to 100 oz, and for silver one lot is equivalent to 5,000 oz. This is a great way to take advantage of trading opportunities in this liquid market. The smaller lot sizes allow you to limit your risk and exposure and also allow you to diversify your trading portfolio.
