But how You can trade Metals?

In inclusion to currencies, metals are also traded on the international financial markets on CFD basis. The two more traded metals are Gold and Silver. Generally, both these metals are traded against USD but trading opposite of EUR is provided as well. Alike on the FX market, metals are traded in pairs. XAUUSD is the sign for the Gold trading product and XAGUSD for the Silver trading product.

Let’s take a look at the following hypothetical for example of trading Gold *:

Let’s suppose that 1 ounce (0.01 lots) Gold (XAUUSD) has a value of roughly $1,200 on the market at this given time. If you sell 1 particle Gold at a rate of $1,200, you are in effect shorting $1,300. If the price per particle decreases to $1,100 for occasion and you buy (long) back the previously sold particle for a cheaper cost, you have a profit of $100. And vice versa if the price for 1 ounce increases to $1,200 and you close your sell position you will lose $100.
