Precious metals like gold and silver are amongst the oldest and most trusted forms of currency. With Hantec Markets (New Zealand) Company Limited, you can trade these metals as commodities on the MT4 platform in the same way as regular forex currency trading. Trading metals does not require physical purchase of the commodity. Instead, you simply trade on the real-time price movements of the asset, meaning you have the potential to profit whether the market is going up or down. 

Why trade Metals?

  • Sell short or long, trading in whichever direction the market goes
  • Maximum exposure from minimal investment - margins as low as 1%
  • Flexible leverage so you can control your level of risk
  • OTC trading - no brokerage fees and no commission on standard accounts
  • Simple trade execution through the MT4 platform
