The natural properties of precious metals give them a high intrinsic value and helped make them one of the first forms of currency. The trading of spot metals, such as gold and silver, is appealing to active traders because of the high liquidity. Like the forex market, political and economic events can significantly influence the price of previous metals and cause their values to fluctuate. In times of market uncertainty, people often turn to the security of precious metals, with gold perceived to be an excellent inflation hedge.
