Is there a way to invest in a particular commodity, say gold, silver, etc?

yeah, on the left-hand side of the IG trade screen, you will see a list of areas to trade in, starting with Indices. The fourth area down is Commodities. Click on that and you will get a decent list of commodities you can trade in. The sixth area down are ETFs. Click on that and you will find a huge list of various types of ETFs that you can trade in. Included in this list are numerous commodity ETFs. You can see the ETF titles showing you the make-up of each ETF. You can choose whatever ETF that you wish to trade .

    • *parp!*  Ooh what's that smell!  
    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
