CFD metals allow you to trade on the price movement of the metal, but doesn’t obligate you to actually buy it. This allows for more freedom when trading – because when you want to buy the actual metal you have to find someone that sells it at the price you want to pay and when you sell it you have to find someone to buy it at the price you want to get.
Another benefit is that you can buy and sell CFDs without owning the actual metal. This means if you think the price of metal is going up, you can “buy” (or go long as is known in traders’ lingo) if you think the price is going down, you can “Sell” (or go short). In both cases you will be able to take advantage of the difference in price between the time you “open” the position (essentially start the trade) and “closed” it (or stopped the trade).
