Commodity Trading

Trade oil and other CFDs online as a more flexible way to invest and diversify your portfolio.

Trading CFDs on commodities is a more convenient way to access the commodities markets than purchasing the product outright. The prices of oil and other energy products fluctuate according to a huge number of factors, including demand, supply and general confidence in the global economy. With Hypercoin Trade you can trade CFDs on:

  • UK Brent oil (spot)
  • US crude oil (spot)
  • US natural gas (spot)

Oil, sometimes termed black gold, is acutely sensitive to many political and economic influences, and its subsequent market volatility means there can be plenty of potential opportunities for commodity traders.

Key Reasons

to Trade CFDs on Commodities

  • Easier access to popular commodity markets
  • Fantastic way to diversify your portfolio
  • Low margin requirements
What is Commodities CFD Trading?

A Contract for Difference (CFD) is an agreement between the buyer and the seller. It means the seller will pay the buyer the difference between the commodity’s current price and its price at the point the contract specifies. By trading CFDs on commodities, investors are speculating whether the value of the instrument will rise or fall.

One of the benefits of CFD trading is that you’re trading on the expectation of a price movement, so you don’t have to actually buy (or take delivery of) the underlying asset.

Because you can take a short position (expecting the price to decrease) as well as a long one (expecting the price to increase), you can still make a profit when the commodity falls in value, not just when it rises.

This gives commodity CFD traders greater flexibility and more opportunities to earn from market movements. By the same token, you should be aware of the potential for losses when going long or short on a commodity’s price.
