Superior Commodity trading conditions.
Explore extensive trading opportunities all with tight spreads and a transparent pricing structure. With CFDs you don't have to buy commodities on an exchange as you don't own the underlying asset.
Taking a position on the commodity market with CFDs means you can trade on both rising and falling markets (bullish or bearish).
Trade the Commodities you know
Whether you prefer to trade metals like Gold and Silver, or speculate on energies like Oil and Natural Gas, you’ll always have competitive trading conditions. At Skilling you can trade the top 6 traded commodities in the world with spreads starting from 0.5 on the premium account to 1.3 on the standard account.
Trading commodities can be a good way to diversify your portfolio if you are trading shares or indices since they have negative or low correlation with stocks. When commodity prices increase, stocks that depend on its production get affected negatively, leading to a decline in prices.
Commodities trading can serve as a way to mitigate highly volatile commodity prices. With commodity futures for example investors can trade commodities at a price which is decided long before the actual transaction takes place.
This is especially helpful for farmers to avoid big losses if the prices of the commodities plummet. But this is also applicable to other industries which rely on commodities (airlines for instance are affected by the price of fuel) and therefore it’s also a way to hedge companies closely connected to commodities
