Spread Costs

With all Friedberg Direct accounts, you pay only the spread to trade commodities. Plus, with our decimalised pricing, you see smaller price movements, giving you more accuracy on USOil, UKOil and NGAS.

Margin Requirements

Trading on margin gives you increased access to the market. Margin requirements vary by instrument. Find up-to-date margin requirements on your platform. Learn More


Energy products like oil and gas expire, so rollover does not apply. Gold and silver, however, are spot products, so rollover applies if you hold your position past 5:00 PM ET.

Trading Hours

With Friedberg Direct's energy products, your trading hours are based on the underlying market—just like your prices. You can open and close trades during the week, before the weekend closing. Friedberg Direct's metal products trade 24 hours a day, five days a week, with a one-hour break each day.


Oil and gas contracts expire monthly, typically a day before the underlying market contracts expire. This means you want to manage your positions before the contract expires. Copper is the only metal with an expiration date, typically the day before the underlying market's expiration.
