Particularly, gold trading is appealing thanks to the high demand, liquidity, and volatility in gold prices.
Moreover, investors consider gold a 'safe haven' during unstable times. Often, holding physical gold and buying gold are considered auspicious in certain cultures. Hence, cultural significance compels people to invest in gold.
Hedging in the gold market is also a common gold trading strategy, as the metal is generally negatively correlated with stocks and bonds, depending on the economy's stability.
Trading gold CFDs

Trading Gold CFDs helps you gain exposure in the gold market without taking ownership or being concerned about the physical delivery of the commodity.
