Your capital is at risk. You may lose all of your invested capital.

Investors include metals in their portfolio as a hedge against inflation. Precious metals like gold and silver are considered safe haven investments during periods of economic and geopolitical uncertainties. Often metals prices fluctuate wildly, posing a substantial risk to traders, while also offering opportunities to make significant earnings. Since prices of metals, like precious metals, are impacted by factors different than those impacting currency exchange rates and the stock market, adding metals to your portfolio allows you to diversify your trades and improve your risk-adjusted returns.

- 2) If the currency of the account is in EUR, the required margin is: 6185.1/1.13750=5437.45 (EUR)
- 3)If the currency of the account is in GBP, the required margin is: 6185.1/ 1.27387=4855.36 (GBP)

- Case 2:Assume someone wants to buy 1 lot of silver at the current price. What is the required margin?
- 1) If the currency of the account is in USD, the required margin is: 1*14.446*5000/10=7223.00(USD)
- 1) If the currency of the account is in EUR, the required margin is: 3611.5 / 1.13750 = 6349.89 (EUR)
