The currency market is the largest and most active financial market, with an equivalent of over 4 trillion US Dollars traded every day. This is significantly larger than any other major financial market. As a result of high liquidity and the market's unique decentralized characteristics, there are always price fluctuations in the Forex market. As a result of these price movements, there are always opportunities to make significant profits, even when other markets remain stagnant.

Trading in the currency market consists of two currencies (a cross or currency pair), in which one currency is bought (long) and the other is sold (short).

Forex - Trading Conditions

With Golder Markets' trading platform, the quotes of the currency pairs are in 5-digit decimal pricing. Our fifth digit allows us to be more precise in our execution, and gives us the opportunity to offer the very best possible spreads.

With prices measured in 1/10th of a pip the view of the foreign exchange market and its direction is easily attainable in comparison to four digit pricing where figures are ‘rounded up’ or ‘rounded down’ where necessary.

Contracts for Difference allow you to trade on the price movements of financial markets, without having to buy or sell underlying assets directly. CFDs allow investors to make profits from a wide range of markets including equities, indices, currencies and commodities. CFDs cost less than directly investing in the underlying asset it represents.



If you believe that a company or a market will experience a loss of value in the short term, you can use CFDs to sell it today, with the expectation that you can buy it back in the future. Contracts for Difference is an over-the-counter financial agreement to exchange the difference between the opening and closing value of a contract at its close.


Precious Metals

During times of high volatility, increased risk, and anticipated inflation, investors often move their funds to gold and silver. Liquidity in the precious metals market is often highest when European market hours overlap with New York trading hours. Golder Markets allows you to speculate on the price movements of gold or silver relative to the US dollar currency.

The Forex market is called an 'Interbank' market due to the fact that historically it has been dominated by banks, including central banks, commercial banks, and investment banks.
