Trading Gold and Silver

Posted on: 08 May 2015 , by: Pepperstone Support , category: About Trading

Pepperstone offers four precious silver and gold crosses on our MetaTrader4 platform. Gold and silver are traded against both the US dollar and euro, and are traded in a similar way to any other currency pairs on the platform.

Gold

XAU/USD is a spot commodity pair based on the physical price that gold can be bought or sold at a particular point in time. Influenced heavily by supply and demand, as well as US Dollar risk, spot gold is a volatile yet increasingly popular commodity available within the interbank market.

Silver

XAG/USD is a spot commodity pair based on the physical price that silver can be bought or sold at a particular point in time. Given silvers common use in jewelry and consumer products, supply and demand heavily influence movements in this pair.
