So, what is commodity trading?

Commodity trading is the buying and selling of raw materials, such as precious metals and oil, that are important to the global economy. The most common commodities include metals like gold, silver and copper, with oil being the most traded energy instrument.

When you trade commodities with Axi, you are not buying a physical asset such as a bar of gold or barrel of oil. Instead, you simply trade the price movements of the underlying asset through CFDs. This means you have the ability to profit whether the price is going up or down.
