The trading of precious metals is an ancient business practice that has been revolutionised by electronic trading and global futures exchanges. It is also a safe haven asset and its price can be dramatically affected by the performance of global stock markets and major world economies. For that reason trading in precious metals is here to stay and will always be used a financial hedging tool at least into the foreseeable future.
Precious metals liquidity is at an all time high and we are proud to be able to offer low cost derivative based trading for those wishing to speculate in the price of gold, silver, palladium, platinum and copper.

Get The Trading Tools You Need
Trading precious metals is attractive to speculators due to the opportunity provided by large price fluctuations in short time frames. Traders need the right tools at their disposal to take advantage of this market as the action happens. The XGLOBAL Markets platform has the power to place market orders in milliseconds, online with ease. In addition live charting and analysis capabilities are provided as standard.
Online Gold Trading
Spot gold is a particularly attractive trading instrument given the popularity gold has as a component of a well balanced investment portfolio. Gold is also one of the most traded products on our platform. Its price is not driven by interest rates or economic news and quite often demand arises from market turmoil. This makes for a rather unique proposition for speculative traders or those wishing to diversify their investments.
Leverage Your Trading
Gold and Silver spot leverage is offered with up to 50:1 leverage (ESMA restrictions of 20:1 and 10:1 apply respectively). The XGLOBAL Markets Metatrader 4 platform allows its our clients to place direct trades starting from 1 right up to 50,000 troy ounces in 1 ounce increments. This makes XGLOBAL suitable for both institutional and retail precious metals traders and dealers.
