An option to buy or sell gold/silver bullion at a future date at a set price. The date (delivery date), quantity and price (strike price), are all predetermined. The option is just that, an option, and is therefore not an obligation on the part of the investor to either buy or sell the gold or silver.
An option is similar to a futures contract in that the price, date and amount are preset for both. The main difference between the two is that a futures contract is an obligation, or promise, made by the investor to uphold the contract whereas an option is not obligation.
While the majority of press is given to price movements of gold in the global marketplace, silver is also viewed by many to hold key importance in understanding the potential movements of commodities markets, and of the overall marketplace as well. This is due to the fact that many buyers and sellers trade silver based on global-macro trends.

Utilize both long and short positions with CFDs to manage your exposure by “hedging”.
Hedge is an investment to reduce the risk of adverse price movements in an asset. Normally, a hedge consists of taking an offsetting position in a related security.
A ratio (X:1), demonstrating how many ounces of silver (X) it takes to purchase one ounce of gold – the fixed variable. Investors use the fluctuating ratio to evaluate the relative value of silver, which determines if it’s an optimal time to purchase gold or silver. It also helps investors diversify their precious-metal holdings.
