What are Precious Metals?

Precious metals like Gold and Silver are tradable instruments classed as a commodity, therefore making their price relatively uniform across the world.

Traders tend to use precious metals as ‘safe-haven’ assets which become more tradable as economic developments and political unrest cause increased volatility across other markets. Afterall, when adverse market conditions arise from war, recession, government debt issues etc, Gold retains its value whereas stocks and currencies are vulnerable to significant losses.

Gold and Silver are characteristically limited in supply, which means that they tend to be of higher value. Where Gold is used as the main safe-haven asset, Silver is typically used in industrial production. Therefore, it’s more susceptible to price fluctuations from changes in business conditions.

HOW-TO
Trade Precious Metals
Buying and selling precious metals doesn’t require you to buy or sell the physical product. You’re simply speculating on the changes in price, just like you would with other financial derivatives.

Price drivers for precious metals, however, are inversely different to other types of financial instrument. Where stocks and shares may see a decrease in value following political unrest or war, precious metals see an influx of investment, driving their prices higher.

Factors that usually affect precious metal prices are supply and demand, national and global economic trends, inflation, USD strength, interest rates, government policy, technology and more.
