Undated commodities vs commodity futures

Trade CFDs on commodities at our undated ‘spot’ or futures prices – available through CFD trading. Your choice will depend on how long you intend to hold your position for.

Undated commodity markets

Take a position on the current value of a commodity with our proprietary ‘spot’ prices.

  • Positions cost less to open, but will incur a fee if left open overnight
  • Speculate on the underlying market price with no fixed expiries
  • Perform technical analysis over the longer term with continuous charting

Commodity futures

Speculate on the underling price of silver futures contracts.

  • Trade over a longer time period – with no overnight funding fees
  • Positions open at expiry will be rolled over unless you specify otherwise
  • Get a clear overview of your contract’s price within its date range

Cost of CFDS on Commodities

  • Spreads for commodities
  • Margin for commodities

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 market price.

Market Spread for futures Spread for undated markets
OIL - US CRUDE 6 2.8
OIL - BRENT CRUDE 6 2.8
SPOT GOLD 0.6 0.3
SPOT SILVER (5000OZ) 3 2
CHICAGO WHEAT 1 0.6
LONDON SUGAR - 0.6

The charge 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. Learn more about our spreads

CFDs are leveraged products, which means you can gain full exposure for the fraction of the cost. The deposit you pay to open a position is called margin. Although it’s not an additional cost to you, it can make a big difference to the affordability of your trade.

Remember, leverage can magnify your losses, as well as magnify any profits.

Market Retail
OIL - US CRUDE 20%
OIL - BRENT CRUDE 20%
SPOT GOLD 20%
SPOT SILVER (5000OZ) 20%
CHICAGO WHEAT 20%
LONDON SUGAR 20%
