Commodities trading can now be done entirely digitally through Apex Finance Holdings and its CFDs, rather than physical trading of commodities like Natural Gas, Oil or Gold. This allows traders to gain exposure to a particular commodities market without physically handling gold bars, oil barrels, etc. Traditionally, the futures market has been the most direct way to trade commodities. Futures contracts are agreements to Buy or Sell a commodity at a predetermined price and at a specified time in the future, and they generally demand a larger allocation of capital compared to CFD’s offered at Apex Finance Holdings.
Commodity CFDs allow you to trade on margin. This means you are only required to deposit a small percentage of the total value of a position. In other words, you have the ability to allocate significantly less capital when trading commodities on margin. In addition, commodity CFDs offer a way to potentially profit from both rising and falling markets, by opening long or short positions.
For example, if a trader opens a short position on the Gold market and it falls 10%, using 5x leverage the same drop becomes a 50% profit. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 10% profit.
Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.
