Commodities are raw materials that can be grown or mined and later processed to form essential goods and services that are traded globally such as gold and oil.
Commodity trading allows investors to profit from price movements in the different types of commodity markets. CMTrading offers access to the following commodities:
Trading commodities with CMTrading provides for higher profit potential through leverage, which can be utilized to get access to magnify a small initial investment and therefore increase profits. However, it’s important to note that leverage may increase potential losses as well.
The exponential global population growth is one of the main drivers of commodity prices. Fast-growing economies consume a large number of commodities such as oil and metals to fuel their growth and this demand translates to an increase in prices. Fast-growing economies consume a large amount of commodities such as oil and metals in order to fuel their growth and this demand translates to an increase in prices.
However, when the economy slows down, the demand for commodities drops significantly which is likely to cause prices to drop as well.
Another factor that can affect the price of commodities is the strength of the U.S dollar. Since the dollar is the basis of international trade, when the value of the dollar appreciates, commodities become cheaper to buy and vice versa.
Commodity traders tend to monitor unemployment rates and GDP figures to gauge the strength of the dollar and therefore be able to predict how commodities like gold and oil will be affected.
Instrument– The FX currency pair or the underlying asset of the CFD product to be traded.
Country– The country in the equity or bond is based.
Standard Contract size– The lot size traded on each platform (Note: CMTrading in MT4 represents the standard lot size).
Standard Spread– The difference between the BID & the ASK price quote for each instrument under normal market conditions.
Margin Per Lot– The required margin to open a single lot of each instrument (Note: It is shown in notional terms).
Overnight Interest Sell/Buy– The overnight interest debited/credited in daily % terms for each instrument.
Trading Hours– The time that trading is available for the specified instrument.
Exchange– The exchange of the underlying asset.
Trading CFDs on margin carries a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors.
The CommoditiesTrading Conditions display the Standard Bid-Ask Spread OR ‘Spread Over Market’ for Commodity Instruments unless otherwise stated. Standard Spreads are as stated under Normal Market Conditions while the ‘Spread Over Market’ is the Mark-up CMTrading adds to the Current Market Spread.
Spread Cost Formula: Spread x Trade Size = Spread Charge in Currency Instrument is denominated in.
For a 10 barrel Crude Oil Trade, with a Spread of 4 pips ($0.04), the calculation is as follows:
0.04 X 10 = $0.40*
CMTrading is compensated through the Bid-Ask spread, except when otherwise stated.
CMTrading does not charge commissions on any trade.
All Instruments are traded on Margin allowing you to Leverage your positions. The Commodities Trading Conditions display Margin Amounts as a Percentage (%).
Percentage Margin Formula: Position Size x Current Price x Margin (%) = Margin Required*
* Margin Required is calculated in the Currency the Instrument is Denominated in.
For a 10 barrel Crude Oil Trade, with a Market Price of $64.00 and a Margin Requirement of 2.00%, the calculation is as follows:
Percentage Margin Requirement: 10 x 64 x 0.02 = $12.80*
The Commodities Trading Conditions display the Over-Night (O/N) Interest Rates Charged/Paid on a daily basis for holding a position open past the End of Day time. These are displayed in the “Overnight Interest – Buy” and “Overnight Interest – Sell” columns. End of Day is 22:00 GMT except during Daylight Savings when it changes to 21:00 GMT.
You can use the following formula to calculate your Daily Overnight Interest amount:
Swap calculation = No Of nights * Swap (buy or sell) *No of Lots*Point value
For a 1 lot CRUDE OIL trade, with a Daily Swap Buy Rate of -4 and subject to charge for 1 day the calculation is as follows:
SWAP = 1x-4x1x10= -40 USD
For CRUDE OIL, the price is denominated in 2 decimals. Point value = 1000(contract size) * 0.01 (number of decimals) so the point value for CRUDE OIL is 10
For COPPER the price is denominated in 4 decimals.
Point value = 250 (contract size) * 0.0001(number of decimals) so the point value for COPPER is 0.0250
You can use the following formula to calculate your Volume:
Number of lots * Contract Size * Open Price
E.G. For CRUDE.OIL
2 * 1000 * 78.90 = 157,800 USD
E.G. For XAUUSD
2 * 100 * 1891.30 = 378,260 USD
Did you know…?
The commodities market in general is highly popular among traders and investors, however, oil is undoubtedly the most actively traded commodity in the financial markets.
Oil is what fuels the global economy and therefore it’s in high demand throughout the year and especially when the economy is thriving. Oil pricing is also highly volatile and therefore traders can leverage the rapid price swings in oil prices and profit substantially.
Trading oil and other commodities through CFDs (Contracts for Difference), is highly accessible with a forex trading account and it provides the added advantage of being able to buy or sell at any given time.
When the economy is booming, traders can buy oil contracts to profit from the potential surge in prices, while in times of crisis or recession, traders can sell Brent or Crude oil and enjoy equally high returns.
