Also known as FX trading or currency trading, forex trading refers to a decentralised, worldwide market, where foreign currencies are exchanged at floating rates by financial institutions, companies, and individuals. Trading in currencies happens 24 hours a day (outside weekends and bank holidays) and there is huge liquidity meaning there is always movement in the market with minimum slippage.
Trading indices opens up a wider variety of markets, allowing you to capitalise on the opportunities of the worldwide equities market and diversify your trading strategies.

An index is a grouping of stocks, perhaps the best-known index is the Dow Jones. The value of an index is usually one share of each of the stocks that make up the index. An index allows you to benefit from moves of an overall sector as well as the stocks making up the index. Indices include the S&P500, the Germany 30, the France 40 as well as the NASDAQ and the FTSE 100. You can trade a variety of global indices with GPP Markets.

Also known as equity indices, stock indices are actual stock market indexes, monitoring the value of a particular area of the stock market. They can represent an individual stock market or a specific group of a country’s largest companies. In basic terms, stock indices are indexes that represent the overall price of a set of stocks. Stock indices are intended to give traders an indication of the general trend of the general economy, or a specific stock market. They can be used to hedge existing equities’ exposure to the market and dampen or heighten the effect of fluctuations in the stock market.

Trading indices with GPP Markets allows you to execute high-volume CFD orders with minimal slippage. Leverage is flexible and pricing is real-time linked to the current performance of the stock market, offering the opportunity to profit from small price changes in the indices with low spreads.
Trading in commodities offers a reliable way to mitigate risk, even during periods of economic uncertainty or inflation.

Commodities are defined as materials that were consumed, like livestock and corn, oil, coffee and orange juice. Most commodities are traded on the futures markets and require large capital and market knowledge as you need to decide a date in the future that the assets will climb or fall. Trading commodity based CFDs have simplified the process and opened these assets to many traders.

Trading fundamental commodities will prevail as a longer-term investment. Global population grown is the main driver of commodity prices, and people will always want and need food and energy. These commodities have become essential elements of manufacturing for domestic and industrial consumption – vital parts of modern living! The complex interplay of factors of supply and demand of these physical commodities create ongoing fluctuations in price, providing opportunities for traders to capitalise on.
Precious metals such as gold and silver have been traded for thousands of years. Metal exchanges around the globe are open 24 hours of every working day. Metals are used to protect against inflation and as defensive strategies. They are known as safe havens.

Of all the precious metals, gold is the most popular of all the metals as an investment. Gold has been used throughout history as money and has been a relative standard for currency equivalents, until recent times. After World War II, the Bretton Woods system pegged the United States dollar to gold at a rate of US$35 per troy ounce. The system existed until the 1971 Nixon Shock, when the US unilaterally suspended the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold and made the transition to a fiat currency system. Since then the price of gold has seen some dramatic rises and has become one of the most popular metals to trade as it has the most effective safe haven and hedging properties.
