FXCM Group Press Releases

Commodity Trading Details

Because the market is always moving, you can find up-to-date info for each product on your trading platform, or check out the Commodity Product Guide.

Trading Costs

With all FXCM accounts, you pay only the spread to trade commodities. Plus, with our decimalized 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.


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 FXCM’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.

FXCM’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. See more details in our CFD Expirations Guide.

Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to adding a markup to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers and adding a markup to rollover. Under the Dealing Desk execution model, FXCM may act as a dealer and may receive additional compensation from trading.

Leverage: Leverage is a double-edged sword and can dramatically amplify your profits. It can also just as dramatically amplify your losses. Trading foreign exchange with any level of leverage may not be suitable for all investors.
