Gold Futures, Prices & Investing

Gold Price Chart Update

Gold is one of the highest-volume futures markets, with an average trade volume of nearly 150,000 per day. This gives investors easy entry and exit for their positions.

Trading gold futures gives you the flexibility of trading almost 24 hours a day, giving global traders access to hours that are convenient for them. If trading gold is a fit for you, get started opening your account today. 

The futures markets also allow investors to trade with leverage. This is an added risk, but it can also be appropriate when hedging physical inventories.
