Investing in commodities
has always been an excellent way to diversify your portfolio. Today, the most popular commodities, such as Gold and Silver, oil and grains, are easier than ever to trade online, enabling traders to spot opportunities and act on them with the click of a mouse.
Online Futures are the best-known method for trading commodities online. Saxo Bank offers Futures contracts on a huge range of products, from the classic commodities such as corn, wheat and sugar to oil and gold futures trading, government bonds, foreign currencies, short-term interest rates and global stock indices. In total, Saxo Bank offers more than 130 Futures contracts from over 15 exchanges worldwide.
Now, there’s an even easier way to trade commodities on Saxo Bank’s online trading platforms. Commodity CFDs (Contracts for Difference) let you trade gold and precious metals, oil, grains, softs and energies with smaller lot sizes compared to Futures contracts, making it simpler to enter the market. CFDs also offer greater leverage, giving a boost to your buying power, and short-selling is fully supported for those times when you think commodities will fall in value.
Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs) from Saxo Bank are another simple way to diversify your portfolio with commodities. ETCs are based on a basket of commodities or an index of a commodity and are traded on a regular stock exchange. Unlike Futures contracts, Exchange Traded Commodities never expire, making them very convenient for “buy and hold” investing. Investors keen on gold trading can also access spot gold trading and Gold & Silver Options with Saxo Bank’s acclaimed Forex offering.
