Precious metal trading offers numerous benefits. Because they retain value, they’re great for long-term investments.


They can’t be devalued by printing money, and their price is determined by global supply and demand rather than events in single economies. These are some of the reasons why many traders consider them a safe haven.

*Approximately 30 minutes before market closure on Friday, margin rates will be set to 1% for all new positions in Metals, Oil and Index products (non-FX). This restriction will remain in place until 15 minutes after markets resume on Monday.

Normal margin conditions will apply to positions opened outside of the weekend market break period.

Currently the required margin rate for XTI/USD and XBR/USD products is 10% so these products will not be impacted by this change.
