Commodity demand is often influenced by broader factors such as economic cycles and population increase.

By trading these CFD assets with GemForex you get to participate in this market and gain by the changes in these assets underline values.


Questions about trading Commodities

For Commodities Trading the margin requirement depends on whether the asset uses a variable or fixed Margin calculation method. See below: While trading XAU and XAG instruments the margin is calculated in accordance with your account leverage. This is how it works: Margin = Lots x Contract Size x Price / Leverage Example: Trade 5 Lots of XAUUSD, account with leverage of 1:500, XAUUSD price: $1800 >>> 5 x 100 x $1800 / 500 = 1800 USD While trading XPT, WTI and BRT instruments the margin is calculated in accordance to the symbols fixed margin requirement. This is how it works: Margin = Lots x Contract Size x Price x Margin percentage Example: Trade 5 Lots of WTIUSD, Margin percentage: 1%, WTIUSD price: $80 >>> 5 x 100 x $80 x 1% = 400 USD

For Metals instruments no margin will be held for fully hedged positions. For partially hedged positions there will be a margin requirement only for the part of the trade that it is not Hedged. Please be aware that your positions may still be stopped-out even when you are fully hedge. This could occur for many reason i.e. widening of the Spreads or Swap charges resulting in a negative Equity. For Energy instruments margin for one side of the fully hedge position will be always held. For partially hedged positions there will be a margin requirement for the larger leg position. For example, in a case where a trader has 5 Lots buy WTIUSD and 2 Lots sell WTIUSD, then a margin requirement will be required for the 5 Lots.

At GemForex all Commodities, apply Swap in points in the quoted currency of the asset you are trading. A "point" is essentially the last digit of the instrument. Below is an example on how a debit or credit to your account is calculated. Calculation Commodities: Lots * Contract Size * Swap rate (long or short). As points are expressed in the instruments quoted currency (in the below case USD), the result may need to be converted to your account's currency. Scenario Commodities: Long (Buy) 10 Lot XAUUSD. Long Swap rate is +2 points. The account's base currency is USD. 10 x 100 x 0.02 = 20.00 USD

Yes it will. Whether you decrease your Leverage from the client area, and thus increasing your margin requirement, or whether the company increases the margin requirements of an asset for any particular reason, this will have an immediate affect to your account's used margin. In a scenario were the company increases the margin requirements for a particular asset, the company will do its best to inform its clients in a timely manner so that the clients have enough time to take actions such us deposit funds or close out trades, in order to avoid a possible liquidation.

At GemForex all orders, including Commodities, are executed via the Market Execution method. Market Execution is an execution process method by which orders are executed at the best available market price in a matter of milliseconds. Due to the frequent fluctuation of prices, the resulted executed price may still be higher or lower than the requested price resulting in a negative or positive price slippage for the client. The benefit of this execution method is that it is the fastest one accessible and offers traders complete market access without requotes.

New or experienced at GemForex we strongly advice our traders to use a 'stop-loss' while trading. Arguably the most popular tool for reducing risk, adding a stop-loss to your orders are designed to limit loss on a position that’s made an unfavourable move. When you place a stop-loss order, you’re requesting to close the position once the instrument reaches a certain price. This is helpful as it means your trades need less monitoring and can help to limit losses, particularly in volatile markets. Please note however that a stop loss is by no means a guarantee, positions may be affected by price gaps over market closures, data release or other economic factors.
