Just as with most other commodities, the underlying markets for metals are mostly found at the two major commodity exchanges in the US known as the CME and CBOE. Here, trading in nearly all commodities occurs on a daily basis, with precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, and palladium playing important roles. In addition to the four precious metals, other metals such as copper and aluminum are also sometimes available as CFDs from low spread forex brokers.
The trading in the physical metals market is what determines the prices that metals CFDs offered by low spread forex & CFD brokers track. Compared to trading in the physical market, however, CFD trading represents major advantages for most smaller traders in that it is possible to earn sizeable profits even with just a small trading account with the help of the high leverage that CFDs are known for. A low spread and high leverage forex broker offering metals trading is therefore a perfect choice for any trader interested in this exciting market.
