The metal market (silver, palladium, gold and more) is a very exciting trading area. Metal’s always in demand. The market is highly volatile. To begin, let’s give you some tips.

First steps

The metal market is relatively straightforward, regardless of the metal you choose to trade.

It comprises of precious metal trading and industrial metal trading.

Precious metals are used in jewellery, but that’s only a part of their story. They are central to many industries – just one example being their importance in circuit boards. This is why they have a high value. Top listings are the London Bullion Market, the Tokyo Mercantile Exchange and the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Industrial metals are another important part of this market. Main ones are copper, tin and lead. But the market is inventive! A new and exciting commodity is scrap metal. Where to start? Best is to look at the London Metal Exchange, the Central Japan Commmodities exchange and New York Mercantile Exchange.

Be aware, however, of this market’s volatility. It does mean you can get great revenue. However, you need to be very well informed, as well as responsible. One main reason for the potentially lucrative volatility of the market is that metals are often harvested in unstable parts of the world (i.e. the Middle East). That should not scare you, but you must keep up to date with international news – in any case this is one good way to predict the movement of many markets.

One tip: Far Eastern markets open earlier. Prices on these markets can give you a clue about what awaits you during any day.
