Nickel is an important metal to trade in, due to a number of factors. It has high electrical and heat resistance, making it ideal for applications such as batteries and electronics. Its steel-grey color makes it attractive for decorative uses; its malleability allows it to be worked into thin sheets; and its low melting point makes it useful in welding and soldering. Besides, it is also a strong and relatively inexpensive metal, making it attractive for industrial uses. By trading nickel, you can take advantage of the price fluctuations for your own benefit.

Copper is a great alternative as it also has high electrical and heat resistance, making it suitable for use in electronic components. It's also cheaper than Nickel, so opting to trade in Copper instead could save you money.
