As mentioned these are CFD derivatives, and not physical deliverables of the precious metal. This means you are trading the price movement of the underlying physical asset.

4. Do the CFD contracts on Precious Metals expire?

Our precious metal CFDs have no contract expiration, so traders can enjoy a very flexible and uninterrupted trading experience.

5. Why Trade Precious Metals?

Trading precious metals is very popular among traders, as they are often inversely correlated to other types of financial instruments. Where traditional markets often see a decrease in value from geopolitical unrest, economic risks and uncertainty, precious metals often see an influx of investment, driving their prices higher, or creating rapid movements and great breakout and trend following opportunities for traders.


At Mt.Cook we offer extremely tight spreads on metals paired with rapid trade execution, 24/5 trading, and no contract expiration. This presents an ideal environment for trading precious metals.
