Top Rated Gold Brokers Reviews - 2017

Many brokers offer other trading instruments in addition to the different currency pairs that are the mainstay of Forex trading. Included in the most popular assets are gold and silver.

This opportunity to trade gold and silver, in addition to currencies, through Forex brokers is providing an opportunity for traders to monetize their forecasts about various precious metals (silver, platinum or even palladium). Although the spread for gold and silver trading is usually high and the leverage is low trading these commodities whenever possible is an appropriate market idea.

Forex brokers usually use XAU/USD notation for spot gold contracts and XAG/USD for spot silver as a trading instrument. The team at Daily Forex has taken the top gold trading brokers and has compiled the comparison chart below.
