What are base metals?

Base metals refer to a group of naturally occurring metallic elements that are more common and less expensive than precious metals. The most recognized base metals include aluminum, copper, zinc, lead, nickel, and tin. These are highly sought metals for various applications, including industrial manufacturing, electronics, pharmaceutical, construction, and investment.

How do I invest in base metals?

Investing in base metals can be done through various methods, including purchasing physical metals through a dealer or trading on one of several metals exchanges.

Base metals futures are contracts that allow investors to speculate on the future price of a given metal. These contracts are traded on a commodities exchange and are a popular way for traders to gain exposure to the base metals market.
