About CME group Metals

Metals have been used as a measure of wealth, and a medium of exchange. With time, their universal acceptance made gold and silver a convenient means for financing international trade alongside local currencies. Today, precious metals are still treated as a hedge against inflation. Gold, silver, and platinum are physical commodities and have a wide range of physical and industrial uses.

They also retain a significant role as an investment and a store of value by the private sector, governments and central banks.

As metal markets are sometimes volatile and unpredictable, these markets provide flexible and creative trading occasions as well as ways to guard and hedge against larger moves in the stock and commodities sectors.
