At Qtrade, we offer you exposure to the most popular precious metals that make up an important commodity asset class. Metals trading is closely linked to the outlook for the overall global markets and major currencies and metals are traded against major currencies in a similar way to other currency pairs on the platform.

Factors affecting precious metal prices include supply and demand, interest rates, economic uncertainty, industrial output and the strength of the dollar with precious metals like gold traditionally viewed as a safe haven in times of volatility. Traders can trade metals to express their outlook on certain industries or to hedge their trading portfolio.

Through careful analysis, CFD traders predict the potential direction of metals prices and attempt to capture gains based on price fluctuations in the short-term or long-term. The market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

An Example of Leveraged CFD Trading

Suppose you want to trade CFDs, where the underlying asset is the XAUUSD a Metal, also known as Gold vs US Dollar. Let us suppose that the XAUUSD is trading at:

You decide to buy 100 oz of XAUUSD (1Lot of XAUUSD) because you think that the XAUUSD price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 0.2% (Account Leverage 1:500) . This means that you need to deposit 0.2% of the total position value into your margin account.

Now, in the next hour, if the price moves to 1702.36/1702.80, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current price of 1702.36 USD.

In this case, the price of gold moved in your favor. But, had the price declined instead, moving against your prediction, you could have made a loss. This continuous evaluation of price movements and resultant profit/loss happens daily. Accordingly, it leads to a net return (positive/negative) on your initial margin. In the loss scenario where your free equity, (account balance+ Profit/Loss) falls below the margin requirements (200), the broker will issue a margin call. If you fail to deposit the money, and the market moves further against you, when your free equity reaches the 50% of your initial margin the contract will be closed at the current market price, known as “stop out.”
