Precious Metal Introduction

Precious metals trading refers to the process in which investors buy low and sell high to earn the difference when they are optimistic about the precious metals market. It can also be a hedging tool in the absence of an optimistic economic outlook to achieve asset preservation and appreciation. Since the world’s precious metal reserves are certain, precious metals can be used as a tool to preserve value. Therefore, precious metals have a good hedging function and can be used to fight inflation. At the same time, precious metals are used all over the world. They are difficult to be manipulated in the market and are not easy to cause collapse. There is no problem of depreciation. From Monday to Friday, trading can be carried out 24 hours a day, allowing investors to have more investment opportunities.

Why invest in precious metals?

The market has proven demand for these products for many years, including individual investors and institutional investors, whether for speculation or risk hedging.

Adequate Market Circulation

Transaction Example

Selling gold contracts (XAUUSD)

1 lot of XAUUSD is 100 ounces.

A customer believes that the valuation of XAUUSD is too high and will fall in the future. In response to this situation, the customer decided to sell XAUUSD.

Assuming XAUUSD is quoted at 1285.50/40 , the customer sells 7 lots of XAUUSD at 1280.40.

When the price of XAUUSD fell to 1282.50/40, the customer decided to close his trade. He bought 7 lots of XAUUSD at 1282.50.
