More ratio pairs / straddles to trade


Recommended Posts

It would be useful to have more ratio pairs to trade as one item. Such as:

Gold/Silver ratio,

Gold/Oil ratio

Platinum discount to Gold

Platinum/palladium ratio

 

Thanks

Hi , welcome to the Community!

 

I've passed your feedback onto our Dealing Desk who'll take a look into it and see if the spread markets you mentioned will be something we'll be able to offer in the future.

 

For the time being, you can create a synthetic spread/ratio market by simply selling one of the markets and buying the other. For example, if you thought the spread between Gold and Silver is going to increase, you could sell Gold and buy Silver. Or if you thought that the spread would tighten, you could buy Gold and sell silver.

 

With the Gold and Silver example, obviously Gold is more valuable than Silver. However as we quote both as a four-digit number, Silver 'appears' as a higher number which is why the spread trade is sell and buy as above.

 

I hope this helps!

    • Folk will continue to believe what they want to believe. A nice, friendly, wholesome narrative is preferable to one which questions whether the whole thing has been a major error of judgement. Emperor and new clothes scenario.  Yes my wife is not the only one having trouble with AZ, thousands of others are (check out twitter and FB (though FB groups regarding vaccine and side effects are being shut down regularly, as freedom of speech is great as long as it's not controversial or contradictory to the prevailing govt narrative). However, we are being labelled conspiracy theorists for questioning the validity of the presented evidence re AZ and even Covid. Which is news to us. We are just a normal family doing our best to get by. Noone wants to hear any "bad" news, even if it has merit. So by extension, being rational has translated into being irrational. Many folk are sleepwalking hoping this dream will end, not seeing the wood for the trees, instead of being awake (not woke, but awake) and affecting change through observation and exchange of information. But observation is a rare commodity and fear discourages free exchange of information. It's all "meh meh meh" .....and they want to give the vaccine to kids ...have they no shame?
    • Oliver Smith @ollysmithtravel 15h After three lockdowns, we've got Europe's highest Covid death toll, its 2nd biggest economic downturn, 50,000+ non-Covid excess deaths, a 5m+ NHS waiting list, a mental health crisis, and we still haven't got our freedoms back. But people still think lockdowns work.   .  
    • I remember the BBC reporting in  front of world trade building 7 saying it had collapsed when it was clearly still standing and then hours later it "suddenly" collapsed - Sept 11th 2001 David Icke did a great publication on that "terrorist attack" which lead to UK/USA forces invading Iraq and afghanistan, along with implementing onerous checks at all airports since - 20 years later we still haven't had another plane hijacked and crashed into anything, probably because if it had it would prove that aviation fuel can't melt steel structural joists, or bring a building down in a vertical fashion as per a controlled explosion I'm yet to be convinced on Covid, but it absolutely fits in with the totalitarian tiptoe Icke says is happening and fits in being an absolute valid reason to vaccinate the entire globe
