Precious metals are rare, naturally occurring elements which have a high economic value. During periods of market volatility, such as economic breakdown and political crisis, precious metals are considered safe havens and a popular choice among traders.
Why trade precious metals?
Safe haven
Precious metals are often viewed as a safe haven during times of economic turmoil. Smart investors trade them in order to diversify their portfolio and hedge their positions, even when the markets are down.
Short selling
Short selling or going short is a way to profit when the price is decreasing. Trading precious metals as CFDs allows the trader to go short with less risks compared to trading the actual metals.
Great liquidity
The market for precious metals is evergreen. You can always sell your investment fast and easily when you want to. It pays off to have such a marketable component in your investment portfolio.
Long-term option
Precious metals are nonrenewable resources. The intrinsic value of the precious metals helps in sustaining their worth when one considers the long-term perspective.
