By trading in commodities CFDs you are buying and selling the world’s raw materials and minerals. These include valuable metals such as gold and silver, livestock and crops, and even energy products like crude oil. Traditionally, commodities were the realm of the professional active trader, but CFD commodity trading through brokers like Infinox has made this extremely interesting sector accessible to all traders.
Gold, silver and oil are familiar products, making their market behaviour more understandable.
Some assets are affected by both political and natural global events.
Some commodities have the potential to hold their value when currency depreciates.
If you’re looking at diversifying your portfolio, CFD trading commodities offers an interesting option. Unlike some financial products, we all know what commodities are. Gold, silver and oil are familiar and tangible, making them more understandable as trading products for many. Bear in mind though, commodities are strongly influenced by world events, so unrest or conflict in an oil producing nation can cause oil prices to fluctuate. Likewise, drought or other natural events can affect the prices of crops or livestock. Trading in commodities can be particularly popular when other markets are stagnant or in decline (bearish). For example when currency prices fall, commodity prices can rise as their value against the currency goes up (bullish). Take a look at the commodities CFDs on offer with Infinox’s brokerage platform.
