Precious Metals

RevoTrade allows trading the spot price for metals including Gold or Silver against the US Dollar or Euro and the metals Platinum or Palladium against the US Dollar as a currency pair on 1:500 leverage.

Energies

RevoTrade allows trading of spot energy contracts including Crude Oil, Brent, and Natural Gas from your MetaTrader 4 platform against the US Dollar.
Trading energy contracts as a spot instrument has many advantages for investors who are only interested in price speculation. The spot price is derived as a combination of the first and second nearby month of the futures contract. This pricing method diminishes the level of volatility.

Soft Commodities

In addition to energy and metal contracts, at RevoTrade we offer a range of soft commodity products to trade, including corn, soybeans, sugar, cocoa, coffee, and wheat as CFDs – all with low spreads and leverage up to 1:100.


How does Commodities
Trading work?

Forex trading is similar to trading shares or futures except that when trading foreign exchange you are buying or selling one currency against another and you do not take delivery of the underlying currency. One of the key advantages Forex has over other financial instruments is that relatively small lot sizes can be traded – lot sizes can be as small as 1000 units (one micro lot). Typically, foreign exchange also involves leverage which in some cases can be as high as 1:500, which is very different to trading shares where no leverage is involved.


Commodity trading example

Buying: Wheat

The gross profit on your trade is calculated as follows:

Opening the Position

Closing the Position

Opening Price
$435.25 * 100 contracts * 4 = USD $174,100
Closing Price
$460 * 100 contracts * 4 = USD $184,000
Gross Profit on Trade
USD $184,000 – $174,100 = $9,900
Wheat_N7 is currently trading at 434.00/435.25 and you are expecting Australia’s East Coast crops to be affected by adverse weather patterns over the coming year which will result in lower than average crop yields.
You buy 100 contracts of Wheat (4 bushels per contract) at 435.25 which equals USD $174,100 (435.25 * 100 * 4).(4 bushels per contract) at 435.25 which equals USD $174,100 (435.25 * 100 * 4).
Your research surrounding weather conditions turns out to be correct. Lower crop yields this year have caused Wheat prices to increase to 460.00/462.15. You exit your position by selling your contracts at 460.
