What are commodity CFDs?

Commodity CFDs are an efficient way to trade on the rising (or falling) prices of raw materials like gold, oil, natural gas and coffee - without owning the asset directly. A Contract for Differences (CFD) also allows traders to use higher leverage over short periods of time. We offer both rolling and future contracts on our commodity CFDs, which let you choose between current (rolling) or preset prices (futures) of commodity assets.

Commodity FAQs

How do I trade commodity CFDs?

Commodity (or ‘commodities’) CFD trading is possibly the oldest form of trading – especially as futures. They allow you to trade on the performance of commodities instead of directly owning the assets.

This refers to buying, selling and trading on the performance of hard commodities that are mined (such as oil, gold & gas) and soft commodities that are harvested (such as coffee & sugar).

Commodities are commonly discussed in four groups: precious metals (gold, silver, platinum, copper), agriculture (coffee, cocoa), energies (Brent Crude Oil, WTI oil, Natural Gas) and livestock (meat).

We offer CFDs on gold, silver and more on our Commodities page. Precious metals such as gold and silver can be considered one of the first ever traded commodities. Investors and traders generally view gold as a safe haven during economic, political or social uncertainty due to their relatively stable demand and the world’s limited supply.

The unit of measure for precious metals are in troy ounces. Please refer to the market specification for precious metals to see the contract sizes for precious metals (like gold) against the US dollar.

Read our Contract Expiry Dates

Trade future CFDs to speculate or hedge on the price direction of a security, a commodity or other financial instruments ahead of time. By purchasing a futures contract, parties agree to buy or sell an asset at a predetermined price at a specified time in the future - regardless of the current market price at the expiration date.

Especially in commodities, this allows traders to hedge against external conditions (like weather) that can impact crops. This means a farmer can set coffee prices upfront in case market prices fall at harvest time - and the buyer could lock in prices in case they soar when crops are delivered.

Trade on NSE futures

Precious metal markets open at (18:00:00 New York time (i.e., 22:00:00 GMT) and you can make trades on XAUUSD, XAGUSD, XPTUSD, XAUEUR and XAGEUR via our trading platforms from 10 seconds after markets open at 18:00:10 NY time (22:00:10 GMT). This is because market participants are often 'guessing' where the price should be in the first few seconds, and some will quote wildly wide prices, while others will chose to wait for someone else to start pricing before they do. Generally, this price discovery process calms down within a few seconds. 10 seconds after the open, our systems can accurately aggregate prices from multiple reputable sources, cross-reference the pricing, and eliminate any potential discrepancies, ensuring that you have the most precise price to base your decisions on.

Our platform invests in cutting-edge technology and data verification methods to provide traders with the most precise and trustworthy pricing information available in real-time. Opening trading from 18:00:10 NY time (22:00:10 GMT) also ensures that even in the busiest or most volatile trading scenarios, all traders receive the most accurate and fair pricing information possible, maintaining market integrity.
