Metals

FXGiants offers CFDs trading on spot metals (XAU, XAG) at the best-of-market spreads and spot execution without having additional foreign exchange exposure. Spot trading is done similarly to forex currency trading where investors take short or long positions of the metals’ prices. There is no centralised marketplace for spot gold or silver trading and thus trading is accessible 23 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Trade gold and silver and take advantage of the emergence of spot metals as a strong asset class.

[2] The swap value depends mainly on the level of interest rates and the interest of the Company for having an open position during the night. The exchange is automatically converted to the base currency of the trading account of the client. The Company reserves the right to amend the swap values of a specific client in case of any suspect of a trading abuse. The operation is carried out at 23.59 (server time) and may take several minutes.

STP swap value is calculated based on the rates we receive from various LPs plus mark-up and as a result it changes frequently to reflect market conditions.
To view Swap values, clients can right click on client terminal market watch and press on Specification.
