You should select the broker which is having Gold (XAU/USD).This is the information related to MT5 (but I think - it is same for MT4 for example))

Sorry, my bad. Forex.com. When I went into the Forum, I clicked on General and Posted. It didn't specify the platform.
It lists it here on their main page, but don't see it in MetaTrader4 Demo. Maybe it's only for real accounts?
Thanks for the Responses!!
I contacted their Support Chat Line. Trading Gold for US customers is done with a separate account using their Forex.com platform.
I'm just looking into the possibility of Trading based on the US Jobs Report that comes out on the First Friday of each month.
I'll have to think if I want trade it using Gold or a Currency Pair that follows Gold.
The report comes out 8/4/18 at 8:30 am EST
Here is a link to an analyst webinar that starts at 8am EST 8/4/18 I found on their site.
I have no Affiliation with them. Just putting it out there as a FYI.
Symbols (pairs) to trade is related to the broker (every broker is having the different set of the symbols proposed to trade).If I want to trade WTI for example so I use one broker, if I want to trade stocks and so on - I used the other broker, and so on.
So, we may have many demo/real accounts with many brokers using just one Metatrader instance. It is my expample with MT5 (but it is same for MT4) -
There are two main platforms for trading:
Metatrader 4 (MT4), and
Metatraderv 5 (MT5).
Sometimes, the brokers (on their website) is telling the people about the following: "we have our trading platform" ... but when you download and install it - you can see that it is MT4 or MT5 ...
Discussion about the brokers is prohibited on the forum sorry.
yes, there are some particularities related to limitations/law/regulations in many countries and so on ...
