Gold Trading History
Since prehistoric times gold was one of the first metals to be mined, mainly because of the form in which it was found, being nuggets or small pieces at the bottom of a river. It became so high in demand that Egyptians started mining it in 2000 BC. Throughout history many civilizations chose gold as a reliable and universal form of money for goods and services.
The gold standard, the monetary system for which the economic currency used is backed up by the gold reserves of the issuing country. It came to exist, due to the recognition of gold as an actual currency. It was abandoned by the United Kingdom and the whole British Empire when World War I began. Most of the other countries also abandoned it during the 20th century.

Different forms of gold available to traders and investors:
Physical metal (bullions or coins) – A bullion is a grouping or bulk of precious metal. Measured in the form of a bar and weight.
Gold certificates – These are very similar to the first paper bank notes. Started in the 17th century, these gold certificates acted as proof of gold ownership, and were passed like cash payments. Today they are still issued by certain banks, and represent a quantity of gold bullion or coins for its owner.
Gold futures – Is a contract agreement for the delivery of gold in the future at a set price. Investors use this to manage the price risk. Since gold futures contracts are traded at centralized exchanges, these contacts offer more leverage and flexibility than trading commodities themselves.
Gold-based ETFs – With the idea that gold continues to offer good returns, the ETF’s – , are managed by gold trading experts. They can potentially give you a better chance to earn more, than if you were to trade it on your own. Keep in mind the price of gold still will continue to affect the ETF.
Contracts for difference – suitable for traders but not investors, this derivative allows to profit from the changes in gold price during the contract duration, without either a right or obligation to purchase the actual underlying asset. Nature of CFDs allows shorting gold and trading it on a margin.
