Bulk commodity

uTrade creates a flexible and easy way for participating in trading of world most popular commodity. Energy and precious metals can be traded on our cTrader platform.

The reason why bulk commodities can attract lots of market speculators’ participation is because they are vulnerable to price volatility sharply due to the change in supply-demand relations. Unlike buying and selling futures contracts, trading of commodity CFDs do not require actual delivery of goods, but just virtual holdings.

Energy contracts, including Brent crude oil and WTI light crude oil CFDs, can be traded in uTrade.

Gold trading

For centuries, speculators assess the health of world economy through the price of crude oil, which is known for “black gold”.

All central banks are printing money, but they cannot print gold. The limited supply of gold means that this asset class will always be under supervision.
