Yes, metals and cfd's, however I don't really use it. Tried trading metals once however they are totally different beasts. Better to focus on a few than try and master many trading instruments.

yes, i have plenty of symbols in my mt4. when i'm bored i try looking for patterns in symbols i don't usually trade - this helps burn time while other trade opportunites develop and in the same time i might notice a new setup.

I tried that but it just makes me lose focus on my usual symbols I trade, so I just stick with that.

I think that over 90% of traders don't touch anything other than the majors on a constant basis, and the extra instruments are just to give an edge over a competing broker who doesn't have such instruments. In any case, it's a win-win situation for the traders.

I agree with you James. Most people tend to focus on the majors. However, I do not. I adjust to market dynamics as they occur. For instance, I have been day trading xau/usd and xag/usd with a high success rate. Since the US economy has turned to crap a few years back, an increase in volatility has manifested in metals and other commodities . This is awesome for day trading. But, it is a BEAST! Trader beware for sure.

Obviously, your trading approach is the ultimate factor. Bankroll, availability, time zones, and time frames all play a part in your approach. I heard stories of GBPUSD used to trade in 300 pip ranges 10 years ago. The USD/JPY was volatile too. But, times have changed, so one must adjust to exploit current dynamics to be optimal. Well, that's the way I see it, to say the least.

A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.

@Geereg Yes, trading gold or silver is totally different animal - its really confusing as you need to adjust for the different volatility with different lot sizes and sl/tp levels, which is very confusing if you're trading many instruments.

Also, the addition of non currency instruments to forex offers are rather new (only a few years old I believe) which is also why these instruments are not being traded a lot, however that trend may be changing.

Yes, they are new but have been around for over a decade. It really comes down to the trader and the ability of the trader. Personally I have never used a S/L level and leave them to amateur traders where they belong.

Yep, CFD on stocks and on futures. I don't use them by now. but I really think about investment to gold... I suppose that is safe.
also if broker doesn't provide any other variants of investment, that will be strange. I wouldn't trust such company...

Yes, it would be very strange as every sound broker should have a range of assets they offer.

However I believe there are really few traders, who works both with CFD and pairs... I mean there must be different strategies and that's kinda hard to run them all...
