Trading with Bprimes gives you access to a range of 6 precious metal pairs including Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium traded against either the US Dollar or the Euro. Used in jewellery, industrial inputs and as safe haven assets in market turmoil – these symbols often move in line with market cycles and inflation.

Gold and Silver

Bprimes offers four precious silver and gold crosses on our MetaTrader4 and cTrader platforms.

XAU/USD is a spot commodity pair based on the physical price that gold can be bought or sold at, in a particular point in time. Influenced heavily by supply and demand, as well as US Dollar risk, spot gold is a volatile yet increasingly popular commodity available within the interbank market.

XAG/USD is a spot commodity pair based on the physical price that silver can be bought or sold at, in a particular point in time. Given silver's common use in jewelry and consumer products, supply and demand heavily influence movements in this pair.

Platinum and Palladium

Bprimes offers platinum and palladium on our MetaTrader4 and cTrader platforms.

XPT/USD (Platinum) is a precious metal which is nearly as valuable per ounce as gold (XAUUSD). While gold is ever so slightly rarer in the earth’s crust, platinum is produced in much smaller quantities. Platinum’s properties as the least reactive known metal and its luster makes the silver metal highly sought after. Platinum’s major uses are found as a catalyst in cars and as jewelry.

XPD/USD (Palladium) is a similar metal to platinum in appearance and function, and is often used as a replacement for the more expensive metal in jewelry and industrial uses. Palladium is produced almost entirely in Russia and South Africa and while the silver metal is the fifth rarest element in the earth’s crust, its production volumes exceed that of platinum. Palladium finds most of its use, like platinum, as a key component in electronics and jewelry, as well as dentistry.

Precious metals can be a great asset to diversify your trading strategy; as global markets, supply and demand are not driven by any one country in particular but the world as a whole. You can buy or sell to take advantage of both rising and falling markets without any additional commission charges applied.

All symbols are available in both MT4 and the cTrader platform, along with the Webtrader, Android, and Apple mobile devices – allowing you access to these markets wherever you are in the world.
