Using our MT5 Genesis Commodity Trading Platform and Expert Advisors, you can track the prices of oil and other commodities traded throughout the day in different financial centers. You can also set up alerts on your trading platform to capture price movements, especially around high-impact events like crude oil inventory reports. Correlation Trader allows you to track correlations between different asset classes.

Commodities are often traded on exchanges that specialize in these products, such as the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) or the London Metal Exchange.
Commodity CFDs are traded using standard lot sizes, such as 1,000 barrels of crude oil. When you trade commodities at ProactFinance , you are actually trading them as CFDs, which means you are only trading price movements and not the actual commodity.
This gives you the flexibility to trade a fraction of a standard contract. So instead of trading 1,000 barrels of oil, you can trade a small amount of 100 barrels of oil. This is ideal if you are new to trading commodities as you can set aside less trading capital to gain exposure to this liquid market.
