- Spot gold
- Spot gold, also known as London gold, is named for its origin in London. Spot gold trading is a contractual trading based on the principle of capital leverage. The pricing is in "USD / oz" and the trading is settled in USD. Since it is not necessary to extract physical gold for trading spot gold, the transportation, storage, inspection, identification and other steps of physical gold are omitted, and the difference between the buying price and the selling price is also less than the difference between the buying and selling price of physical gold. At present, ITE Company provides you with XAU / USD trading products.
- Spot Silver
- Spot silver, also known as London Silver, like spot gold, is a 24-hour trading lever and an investment product. The price of silver is mainly affected by the relationship between supply and demand. In recent years, silver has been in short supply, which makes the fundamentals of silver stronger, and the price fluctuates more than many other metals. At present, ITE Company provides you with XAG / USD trading products.

Leverage and margin trading
Spot gold and silver trading implement the margin system, which is generally highly leveraged. Many dealers provide a leverage ratio of 100:1, which means that traders can use the leverage function to "enlarge" their funds for trading. Take the spot gold price as an example. If the price of gold is US $1150 per ounce, trading 1 ounce of gold requires only US $11.50 margin under the leverage of 100:1. At ITE Company Global Limited, we provide you with a trading leverage ratio of up to 100:1. Of course, margin trading is a double-edged sword. It can not only increase profit opportunities, but also enlarge the risk of loss.

Profit and loss calculation
Contract value = current price of gold (or silver) x trading quantity
Take the gold quotation of 1155.12/1154.57 as an example, if you buy one hand of gold at the price of 1154.57 (one hand = 100 ounces) and sell it when the price rises to 1154.98. At this point, your earnings are (1154.98 – 1154.57) x 100 ounces = $41. If the price falls below 1154.57, it will lead to a loss.
