Silver Trading with CFDs

Trade Silver CFDs on Our MT4 Trading Platform

Silver trading dates back about 5,000 years ago when it was used as a means of exchange (monetary transactions). Similar to gold, silver was heavily traded in ancient times because it was considered as a measure of wealth and was valuable as jewellery. It was also attractive and commonly used for decorative and artistic purposes.

Today, Silver trading is still popular not only among traders of the physical metal but among financial traders who take advantage of the price movements in silver. Trading Silver CFD contracts means you don’t have to accept the physical delivery of the precious metal. You are only trading the price movements.

At Synergy FX, you can trade Silver along with other Commodity CFDs directly via our MT4 trading platform.

Important Contract Specifications for Silver CFDs

Contract size:
1 contract equals 5,000 ounces of silver. You can trade as little as 0.01 silver CFDs which means you control 50 ounces of silver.
Margin required: 1%. 1% margin is calculated as follows. Lots X Initial Margin / Leverage. Therefore 0.01 lots * 100,000 /100 = $10. Price per point for every 0.01 lots is such that if the price moves a full point 16.01 to 17.01 this is $100.
Comm.: There are no commissions on the Silver CFD.
Spreads: Floating. This means the spread will be low during active market hours and higher during market hours.
Smallest contract size: 0.01 CFD. You can trade as little as 1 Micro CFD.
Price per point: $US10. For every contract you have, each full point movement will be $US10.
