There are several factors that affect price fluctuation and that can cause volatility in the precious metals market. One of the most important factors is global financial institutions, whose investments are speculative in nature and can cause upward or downward price movements. Another factor that influences the market is the end-user trends, mainly triggered by jewellery buyers. In general an increase in demand for jewellery causes precious metal market prices to rise. Economic conditions also have an impact on market prices. Changes in demand for some other financial assets apart from precious metals also contribute to price fluctuations.
The actual weight given to a stock index from the underlying basket of stocks varies between the indices. There are two main ways an index can calculate the weight a specific underlying stock is ‘price weighting’ and ‘capitalization weighting’.
|CFD Indices||Minimal trading volume||The lowest spreads||Average spreads*||Swap type||Swap long*||Swap short*||Contract size||Margin currency|
* The average spreads indicated here are calculated throughout the day. They tend to be narrower under normal market conditions. However, spreads may widen as a result of important news announcements, during political uncertainty, because of unexpected events that can lead to volatile market conditions, or at the close of the business day, or at the weekends when liquidity is lower. When you trade at our company, Trading Point is your counter-party. Your trades are matched and any next exposure above the predefined thresholds is hedged with our liquidity providers at the current market spread. However, during volatile and illiquid market conditions our liquidity providers quote spreads larger than normal. At such times, Trading Point is forced to pass on some of the spread increases to its clients.
** If you leave an open position for the next trading day, you pay or you obtain the certain amount, calculated on the basis of interest rates difference of two currencies in currency pair. This operation is called “swap.” In the trading terminal, “swap” is automatically converted into the deposit currency. The operation is conducted at 00.00 (GMT+2 time zone, please note DST may apply) and can take several minutes. From Wednesday to Thursday swap is charged for three days.
