Don’t Give Up on Gold Just Yet

Industrial metals and commodities shares have been dropping in recent times according to some recent market statistics. Most importantly is Gold which has seen a drop in not seen since early 2000s. As at today, most people have turned away from gold and investing in gold is now termed a fools investment owing to the all time low drop in prices of gold. However, even though, gold is down at the moment, there are people who think there is an opportunity to invest in it as there is a certainty that the values of gold will rise again.

Since the month of March, the price of Gold seems to have been dropping continuously even as the US dollar keeps appreciating. In fact, it now looks like any increase in the interstate rate in the US strengthens the US dollar leading to more fund drainage from metals and commodities.

It shouldn’t really be a surprise about what is happening to gold at the moment. It is has been known that the US Dollar and gold have always been at the opposite end therefore the dropping the price of gold just signifies the strength of the US currency which has opened up opportunities for trading as against trading in commodities.

There are several reasons for this slump. In the first place, there seem to be an overestimation of the amount of gold that is held by China. Unfortunately, the size of 6 million tons is not really enough as expected and the knowledge of this situation is what has plunged the price of gold. Besides, another top gold demanding country which is India decreased their demand for gold last year and this also contributed to what gold is experiencing at the moment.

The value of gold has kept decreasing despite the major holidays which normally increase the need for gold in India and China. Also, the Greek situation has also played a part as uncertainty of the Euro paved way for the Dollar to rise as more and more investors shifted their currency holding to the dollar.
There is a belief that gold will bounce back real soon even though it currently stands at 1.3% to 96. For example, investors are still advised to hold off their gold for a little longer until the rate begins to find their normal placement.

It is important to note that despite all these, gold is still regarded as a “safe haven” especially for long term investors as a hedge against recession and inflation. Gold remains the only way wealth has been measured from generations to generations despite crash in global economy at some point. It is not being used in our daily transactions but its importance to the global economy cannot be over emphasized.
However, it is envisaged that a time will come when investors will not just look at buying the market gold but also start buying the physical gold as a long term investment. Should it get to this point, it is certain that gold prices will hit the roof again.

The CFDs online trading market is one of the largest trading market in the world today and the implication of this is that there are some market makers that have a lot of impact on the prices. New traders who enter the market are expected to know some things about the market. This is because most people will enter the forex CFDs market with the hope of making it big but unfortunately they end up incurring losses and then exit disappointingly.

Make no mistake; there are a lot of things traders need to understand clearly. In the first place, there is no better way to trade online CFDs in Forex than trading in the ECN market. The question is : what exactly is ECN? An ECN broker uses electronic communications networks (ECNs) to provide its clients direct access to other participants in the CFD markets. Because an ECN broker consolidates price quotations from several market participants, it can generally offer its clients tighter bid/ask spreads than would otherwise be available to them.

Anonymous Trading

ECN brokers will ensure that trading is anonymous. The Electronic Communication Network markets will only work with neutral prices and this gives rise to a level playing field in such a way that no bigger player can really distort the market. This results in neutral trading market which reflects standard trading conditions. Note that these prices reflect the demand, supply, volatility and other market conditions.

Automated Trading Data

There is always a challenge in gaining access to high quality data in the CFDs market. However, it is different if you work with a broker of high repute as you have the option of using their API to connect with different trading models as well as management systems so as to access these market data from different sources. There are a lot of people who base their trading on information strategy and in this case, they try to ensure that they get as much information as possible before making a trade. However, a reputable broker gets you access to a lot of different data and information which is capable of improving your trading experience.
