At Malfex, we offer you exposure to the most popular precious metals that make up an important commodity asset class. Metals trading is closely linked to the outlook for the overall global markets and major currencies and metals are traded against major currencies in a similar way to other currency pairs on the platform.
Factors affecting precious metal prices include supply and demand, interest rates, economic uncertainty, industrial output and the strength of the dollar with precious metals like gold traditionally viewed as a safe haven in times of volatility. Traders can trade metals to express their outlook on certain industries or to hedge their trading portfolio.
Through careful analysis, CFD traders predict the potential direction of metals prices and attempt to capture gains based on price fluctuations in the short-term or long-term. The market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.
You decide to buy USD 20,000 because you think that the USD/USD price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 0.02%. This means that you need to deposit 0.02% of the total position value into your margin account.
Now, in the next hour, if the price moves to 0.7470/0.7471, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current price of USD 0.7470.

Margin Trading: As CFDs are a leveraged product, you can open large positions by depositing only the margin required. As metals such as gold have high levels of liquidity, commodities trading offers higher levels of leverage than many other tradable instruments.
Go ‘Long’ or ‘Short’: One of the main attractions of CFDs is the ability to speculate in both rising and falling prices. The ability to open short positions and benefit from falling prices is a unique aspect of CFD trading and one that creates additional trading opportunities.
Risk Management: Advanced trading platforms such as Metatrader 5 offer excellent risk management tools. Their features include a large range of charting tools but also a multitude of order types and alerts to ensure that you are made aware of any changes to market conditions.
Supply and Demand: Applicable across all products and services, the same also applies to precious metals. A shortage in metals or the increased demand for their use can affect prices. Let’s take industrial metals such as copper or aluminium. A technological advancement may create an alternative for their use and decrease their value.
Macroeconomic Variables: Data relating to interest rates and GDP affect a significant amount of metals. One of the reasons is because metals are seen as a safe-haven, and an alternative investment to the cash rate provided by financial institutions.
Market Conditions: Malfex provides metals trading against many major currencies including the US dollar, similar to foreign exchange. Metals tend to be susceptible to the US dollar and have historically traded in the opposite direction to the greenback. This is why they are often used as part of a hedging strategy in times of economic uncertainty.
Inflation: Anything that dilutes the value of a currency helps the performance of metals. Quantitative easing or the printing of additional money causes a rise in inflation with metal prices generally following suit.
Metals CFDs: As you do not have to not actually own the underlying asset when trading CFDs, there are fewer costs associated with investing in metals this way. There is no need to store the asset and traders can benefit in both rising and falling prices. The prices are comparable to those found on the London Metal Exchange (LME), the world’s largest market for ETFs on base metals and other metals.
Portfolio Diversification: With limited correlation to other financial instruments such as stocks and bonds, trading precious metals is a useful way to diversify your portfolio.
Hedging: Precious metals are often used as part of a risk management strategy. Investors often trade metals to hedge against inflation and currency.
Safe-Haven: During times of economic uncertainty, the value of precious metals tends to rise. This has historically been the case during economic slumps and key political events including major elections.
As indicated by their name, precious metals are indeed that. They are rare which prevents the prospect of excessive supply and have an infinite lifespan as they do not rust. The fact that they are measured in troy ounces makes it easy to compare their value.
The History Of Metals dates back thousands of years. Apart from being a medium of trade and exchange, precious metals have been considered as a long-term store of value for an extended period of time.
Some of the factors to consider prior to investing in precious metals include the current geopolitical situation, that state of the US dollar, the position of central banks and inflation rates.
