WHAT IS METAL TRADING?

Metals trading refers to the buying and selling of various types of metals, such as gold, silver, copper, platinum, and others, in financial markets. These metals can be traded as commodities on exchanges around the world, and their prices can be influenced by a variety of factors, including supply and demand, geopolitical events, and economic conditions.

Metal trading can take place in different forms, including physical trading where the metals are physically delivered to the buyer, or in the form of CFDs, which allows for significant leverage. At Fortuno Markets, you can trade metal CFDs with leverage and multiply your position size.

Metal traders may include individual investors, hedge funds, banks, and other financial institutions. The purpose of trading metals can vary, including hedging against potential price fluctuations, trading on short-term price movements, or investing in metals for long-term growth potential.
