What are commodities?

Сommodities are tradeable physical assets such as metals, including gold, silver, platinum, and copper as well as crude oil, natural gas, and other resources.

The value of commodities to a trader is that they have little connection with the ups and downs of currencies and the stock market, helping create a diverse and stable investment portfolio.
Modern investment offers a variety of easy ways to take part in commodities trading—the most common of these is trading CFDs (contracts for difference). These let you take a position on a commodity’s price without actually owning the asset.

Advantages of CFD trading:

  • The ability to profit from not just strong markets but falling ones as well
  • Speculate within a wide range of markets from just one platform
  • Margin trading lets you create a diverse investment portfolio rather than locking up all your capital within a single transaction.


Commodities trading in gold has become very popular indeed, as online investment has grown—it provides one of the simplest and most affordable means of making a profit.

Gold has great transferable value and historically has been proven to be highly dependable for gold traders. Plus, in general, precious metals make an excellent bolster during periods where currencies are depressed, and inflation is high.

  • The most popular traded commodity
  • Excellent hedge against inflation and deflation
  • Historically strong demand
