While other commodities depend on production and consumption volumes, gold and silver follow the socio-political factors and act as a hedge against uncertainty in the markets. Experienced investors prefer physical ownership of gold and silver as long-term investments. However, derivatives and exchange-traded contracts offer short-term investment opportunities for traders to add a secure element to their portfolios. These exchange-traded contracts offer a simpler, less capital-intensive way of benefiting from price movements in gold and silver for traders.
