Precious metals are rare, naturally occurring elements which have a high economic value across the world including Australia. While having value within industry, they are mostly now used as commodities investment instruments which offer an insight into the health of an economy because they are viewed as a relative safe haven during tough economic conditions.

For centuries, Gold has been used as a safeguard against risk. In today’s highly volatile market environment, adding Gold CFD positions to your portfolio via the Vantage MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Platforms can help to mitigate the risks of major ‘black swan’ events.
All central banks are printing money, but you can’t print Gold. The fact there is a finite supply of Gold means that speculation will always occur in gold trading.
Gold trading has been popular among Australian traders who enjoy increased volatility, which is what traders live by and thrive on. Start trading Gold CFDs with Vantage FX.
Unsophisticated investors may refer to Silver as a poor man’s Gold, but don’t discount this highly volatile precious metal yourself. Closely correlated to Gold, Silver presents a vast number of trading opportunities otherwise missed if only trading Gold CFDs.
Find your market edge while trading Silver CFDs through the Vantage FX MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5 Platforms.
