Commodities Trading

IC Markets offers a flexible and easy way to gain exposure to some of the world’s most popular commodities including energies and metals all from within your MetaTrader 4 & cTrader trading platform.

Commodity markets are attractive to speculators as they are susceptible to dramatic changes in supply and demand.

Spot Energy Contracts

IC Markets allows trading of Spot energy contracts including Crude oil, Brent & Natural Gas from your MetaTrader 4 platforms against the US Dollar. 

Trading Energy contracts as a spot instrument has many advantages for investors who are only interested in price speculation. The Spot price is derived as a combination of the first and second nearby month future contract. This pricing method diminishes the level of volatility
