NSFX offers Silver trading to all individuals. Silver is mainly traded against the USD And EURO and its symbols are XAG/USD OR XAG/EUR. The symbol XAG is the international standard code for Silver. As with all precious metals Silver traders may experience times high volatility as the market is affected by events seemingly unrelated. Silver itself, has gained more attention in recent years with its low price but stable long term outlook. As a result, Silver speculation in today’s market is considered smart portfolio diversification.

For thousands of years, Silver has been considered a precious metal, that has served as a means of monetary exchange across civilizations and empires. Since the abandonment of the silver standard towards the end of the 19th Century, silver has lost its role as a popular legal tender in most developed countries including the United States. By 2009, the primary market demand for silver has been for industrial applications (40%), with jewellery, bullion coins, and exchange-traded products making up the rest.

Silver Trading Example

Explanations aside, it’s essential to see how Silver positions look in the actual market. The most straightforward way is by going through the calculations involved

Let’s take a 1000 ounce XAG/USD (1 Lot) position bought at a market price of $32.00 per/ounce. The USD value of the position will be: 1000 ounces X $32.00 = $32000 With a margin requirement of 1% (1:100 leverage) the result will be $320 required to open the position.

Now, let’s take a 100 ounce XAG/EURO (“Mini-Lot” or 0.1 Lot) position bought at a market price of €25.00 per/ounce. The EURO Dollar value of the position in EUROs: 100 ounces X €25.00= €2,500. With a margin requirement of 1% (1:100 leverage) the result will be €25.00 required to open the position.

Silver CFD Rollover (Swaps)

In both commodities and foreign exchange markets a rollover/swap, is the interest that is added or deducted in order to secure an open position overnight. Rollover/swap rates are calculated as the overnight interest rate differential between the two currencies on which the position is held comes due, depending on the position type (Buy (Long) / Sell (Short).

It is important to consider the following aspects of rollover/swap charges:

  • Rollover/Swaps are charged on client’s Forex accounts only on the positions kept open into the next forex trading day
  • The rollover process begins at the end of the US market trading session.
  • The Silver rollover/swap rates above are calculated and based on USD accounts per 1 standard lot
  • The rollover/swaps are calculated and applied on every trading night. On Wednesday night rollover/swaps are charged at a triple rate(please read through explanation below)

Some additional information regarding Precious Metal Rollover/Swaps

At NSFX Ltd. rollovers are dealt with on a "spot" basis only. Meaning that all positions are settled two business days from inception, as per market rules. NSFX will not facilitate actual physical delivery of either precious metals/currency. As a result, all positions that are open from 23:59:45GMT to 23:59:59GMT (Server time) are rolled over to a new value date. These trades are then charged or credited the relevant rollover as shown in the table above.

Very Important: When an open trade is rolled over from Wednesday to Thursday on trade, the new value date shifts to Monday of the next week. As a result, the rollover charge on Wednesday evenings will always be three times the value shown in the above table.In general it should be understood that in the case of factoring in weekends and holidays, the rollover/swap is multiplied by the number of days of the rollover.
