Introduction

With ADVANCED TRADING, you can trade CFDs on gold, silver

When you take a position, you’re speculating on the metal’s rise or fall in value,

rather than taking actual ownership. If your prediction is correct, you’ll make a profit. If not, you’ll make a loss.


As CFDs are leveraged products, you’ll only ever need to put down a small deposit to gain exposure to the full value of your trade. Keep in mind that while this helps your capital to go further, it also means you stand to lose more than your initial outlay.
