Why is silver trading popular?

Silver trading is popular due to its association with global currencies – in fact, in over 14 languages the words for silver and money are the exactly the same.

Despite not being as rare or as valuable as gold, there are a few benefits that make silver an attractive market in its own right. For example:

  • It has a lower cost of entry than other precious metals – an ounce of silver typically costs 40-80 times less than an ounce of gold
  • It’s considered a ‘safe haven’ investment in times of economic uncertainty
  • It has a wide variety of industrial applications – such as in building and medicine – which creates steady demand
  • It’s relatively volatile for a precious metal, so there’s the potential for larger returns

Three top tips for trading silver

Outline your trading plan

Your trading plan will determine all of the decisions you make, such as:

  • Whether to trade or invest in silver
  • Which market to focus on
  • How much capital you use per trade
  • What risk management tools you use
  • How much time you want to spend monitoring markets
  • You should always outline your trading plan before you start, so that you’ll be less inclined to make decisions emotionally or due to herd mentality.

Consider CFDs on silver miners or silver ETFs

Trading silver’s underlying price is just one way of getting exposure to the market. You can also consider other means such as shares in silver companies or exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Silver stocks are the companies involved at all stages of the silver supply chain – mining, extraction, refining, production and distribution. Stocks tend to be more liquid and less volatile than silver itself, which can be more appealing if you’re interested in longer-term growth. If you invested in stocks, you’d also get shareholders rights and dividends if they were paid.

Silver ETFs are buckets of assets that give you exposure to the silver market. This can include the underlying precious metal itself, or a number of silver stocks.

Perform your own analysis

Technical and fundamental analysis are the cornerstones of any good trading strategy. The two methods will help you determine the best levels to open and close your positions at in order to maximise profits and minimise losses.

Silver CFD costs and details

  • Spreads for silver
  • Margin for silver

The spread is our charge for executing your trade. It’s the difference between the buy and sell price, which we wrap around the underlying silver price.

Spread for futures Spread for undated markets
Spot silver (5000OZ) 3 2
Alternative silver markets Spread
Polymetal International stock 0.253
Fresnillo stock 0.153
Global X Silver Miners ETF 0.153

The spread will vary depending on whether you trade futures or our undated contracts. Futures have a wider spread, but no overnight funding charges – so are more cost-effective for longer-term trades.

If you choose to trade silver stocks and ETFs via CFDs, you’ll be charged a commission instead of a spread.

CFDs are both leveraged, which means you can gain full exposure for a small deposit known as margin. This isn’t an additional cost to you, but it can make a big difference to the affordability of your trade.

It’s important to remember that leverage will magnify both profits and losses.

Market Retail
Spot silver (5000OZ) 20%
Polymetal International stock 20%
Fresnillo stock 20%
Global X Silver Miners ETF 20%

If you decide to trade silver CFD options, the margin for 'buying' an option is the opening price (or premium) multiplied by the size of the bet. The margin for 'selling' an option is the same as the margin incurred when trading the underlying futures market.
