Trading other Metals

AvaTrade offers a range of other metals to trade:

These markets tend to be less liquid, and therefore less volatile, than the gold market which means trading hours are shorter. However, they do offer more stability than gold, which means they are often used as an alternative investment when markets are volatile.

Gold Trading & Forex

Gold trading on AvaTrade is easy to understand, especially if you’ve already gained some experience of the forex market. Gold units are measured in Troy Ounces against a currency – usually the dollar – in a similar way to a Forex currency pair.

Factors Influencing the Trade in Gold

The trade of this precious metal is interwoven with that of the trade of currencies, and with the financial markets in general.

Several different factors come into play when analysing the movement of the Gold price:

  • Supply - can be affected by decline in yields, political instability and the discovery of new seams
  • Demand - mainly comes from jewellery and use in technological products
  • Market Volatility - Gold has often been used as a safe haven investment when markets are unpredictable

As a client of AvaTrade you will receive regular market reports and live, streaming news updates as well as all the analysis of the latest moves in the metals markets.
