Metals are commodities that can be traded on the metal exchanges such as the London Metal Exchange (LME), the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and the Shanghai Gold Exchange. Commodities trading used to require time, money and expertise, whereas now, trading has been democratised with more choices for participation. Trading CFDs on hard metals such as gold, silver, platinum and palladium has become a popular form of derivative trading, allowing investors to speculate on the rising and falling prices of the commodities market.
