Forex

Open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, the foreign exchange market is the largest and most liquid market in the world with volumes of over $4 trillion a day, surpassing any exchange-based market.

Foreign exchange trading involves trading one currency against another, predicting which currency will rise or fall, and then deciding which other currency it will move against. For this reason, currencies are traded in pairs, such as the Euro versus the US Dollar (EUR/USD).

While a lot of foreign exchange is done for practical purposes, the vast majority of currency conversion is undertaken by forex traders with the aim of earning a profit. The amount of currency converted every day can make price movements of some currencies extremely volatile. It is this volatility that can make FX so attractive to forex traders: bringing about a greater chance of high profits, while also increasing the risk.

Precious Metals

Precious metals offer insights into economic health and are often viewed as a safe haven during times of economic or political uncertainty. We offer trading in gold and silver.

For traders looking for some protection during times of market turmoil, precious metals trading is an important part of their portfolio, due to their lasting intrinsic value. They are also viewed as an inflation hedge
Given that the precious metals are traded against the US Dollar, they are particularly susceptible to the value of the greenback.

When the dollar falls, precious metals are both a good place to store its value and less costly for other countries to purchase – meaning it is likely to push the price of precious metals higher.

indices

Cash Indices

Indices are the most popular form of CFDs. CPT Markets UK has a large range of Indices from around the world to choose from, including the DOW30 Index, S&P500 Index, NASDAQ100 Index, FTSE100 Index,DAX30 Index, CAC40 Index and EUSTX50 Index.

A stock index is a good indicative measure of market performance. Indices such as the FTSE 100  Index are baskets of blue chip stocks listed on the London Stock Exchange and are generally a good measure of the current market sentiment. A change in the performance of any constituent stock in an index is reflected in a change in the overall value of that index.

Indices have the advantage of allowing traders to take a wider view of a basket of stocks rather than taking a view on one individual stock alone.

energy

Energy

Often referred to as “black gold”, oil is one of the world’s most valuable resources. Even with the rise in the new “renewable” markets, crude oil is still integral to the global economy. This, combined with the fact that oil is a finite resource, makes it a market with plenty of volatility, as past performance will testify.

Brent crude and West Texas Intermediate (WTI) are the benchmarks on the market. Brent crude refers to oil drilled out of the North Sea, whilst WTI refers to oil produced in North America. Although WTI is of the higher quality, shipping and storage costs play their part in the pricing of the contracts

All energy futures contracts, Brent, WTI and Natural Gas, have a fixed expiry date at some point in the future

Futures contracts offer speculators a higher risk/return investment vehicle because of the amount of leverage involved with these commodities.
