Precious metals play an important role in commodity markets

Gold and other precious metals, crude oil, copper, gasoline and other commodities play an important role in commodity markets. All are contract traded commodities. Precious metals contracts include futures, spot, forward and options. Futures contracts are traded through a futures exchange or futures market. Traders from all over the world can trade about 50 major commodities, which have high economic value and durability, with gold, silver, platinum, palladium and others among the major trading assets. Asia is the world's largest market for precious metals (China, India and Singapore are major traders in these commodities), and the bulk of commodities trading is dominated by US and European companies. The biggest precious metals companies are in Canada and Germany.

Precious metals are traded in two ways

In addition to commodities such as currency pairs, indices and gold, other precious metals are also actively traded in futures markets. It is available 24 hours a day except weekends. Generally, precious metals are traded in two ways: spot contracts and futures contracts. Spot contracts deal with spot buying and selling, payment and delivery. Futures are standard contracts whereby the buyer and seller agree on a price for a certain amount of precious metal (called the futures price) to deliver and pay at a future date (called the delivery date). Futures trading means that there is no actual ownership of goods traded online.

Is a good commodity for risk management in times of inflation or economic/political uncertainty

Since the 1970s, apart from currency pair (foreign exchange) trading, precious metals have become the most popular investment commodity for portfolio risk management in times of inflation or economic/political uncertainty. Investing in gold and other precious metals for the long term is a popular investment method around the world. Futures contracts are so-called derivative contracts, meaning their value is derived from the performance of the underlying asset. One of the main purposes of investing in precious metal futures is risk mitigation: given the ability of contract buyers and sellers to take fixed prices or interest rates in advance for future transactions, they can both ensure that drastic or sudden price movements may lead to increased losses.

Precious metals trade both ways

Precious metals can be said to trade both ways: if the market expects an uptrend (uptrend) the trade can be done by buying the futures contract (long) and exporting the trade by selling it; While if there is an expectation of a downward movement (downtrend), the trade can be entered by selling the futures contract (shorting) and the export trade by buying the contract. It is also possible to trade multiple futures contracts, which involves making several separate entries and exits, i.e., entering the contract at a different price, exiting at one price, or vice versa. The ability of both sides to trade allows investors to make a profit whether the market moves up or down.
