Precious Metals: Gold, Silver

Metal trading refers to the process in which investors buy low and sell high to earn the difference when they are optimistic about the precious metals market.

Since the world's precious metal reserves are certain, precious metals can be used as a tool to preserve value.


London Gold is the name of a gold trading method, also known as spot gold, which was named after the earliest origin of London. The London gold market is not a real trading venue, but an invisible market that is connected through the sales network of major gold merchants. London Gold is often referred to as the European Gold Trading, represented by the London Gold Exchange and the Zurich Gold Market.

There is no fixed place for this kind of gold trading. In the London gold market, the whole market is composed of the mutual links between the major gold merchants and the subordinate companies. The transactions between the gold merchants and the customers are by telephone, fax, etc.; in Zurich In the gold market, the three major banks buy and sell for customers and are responsible for checkout and liquidation.


Silver is often referred to as "the gold of the poor." Silver, like gold, is an investment that can be traded for 24 hours. The world's major markets include London, Zurich, New York, Chicago and Hong Kong. As early as the 17th century, London had started to buy and sell real-life and futures silver. The London market set a fixed price every day, allowing the buyers and sellers to settle at the fixed price. Although the City of London is still the most active physical market, most transactions are currently completed in the US COMEX market in the form of contracts (paper silver), while silver spot prices are set by COMEX. The price of silver is mainly affected by supply and demand. In recent years, silver has been in short supply, which has made the fundamentals of silver stronger. However, since silver is also a tangible asset and has a role in maintaining value, it is also affected by factors such as inflation, fiscal deficits, and global interest rates. In modern times, its industrial use has also become extremely significant. Silver prices have risen sharply in the past few years.
