Forex Metals

Gold and silver are two of the most popular and heavily traded commodities for investments across the globe. They offer ample trading opportunities with high liquidity. DTTW™ provides access to spot gold and silver trading.


Two precious metal pairs:

  • XAU/USD (spot gold)
  • XAG/USD (spot silver)

Both pairs trade in a method similar to currency pairs, and are quoted in terms of USD per ounce (oz.). For example, if XAU/USD is quoting at 1168.12, that means 1 oz. of gold will cost 1168.12 USD.
