Changing the Face of Precious Metals Trading


The MetalDesk online trading platform allows users to access the Allocated Bullion Exchange (ABX) and store or take delivery of physical bullion via one centralised interface. MetalDesk is the first metals trading platform of its kind, bringing price discovery from 7 global trading hubs in one online trading environment and offering increased liquidity and transparent pricing for those seeking access to the physical precious metals market.

MetalDesk connects an international network of buyers and sellers, providing direct access to the wholesale bullion market with ease and simplicity. Trading Hubs represent the supply and demand forces of different localities which are tied together within one platform; with prices differing from one location to the next. The different prices reflected on MetalDesk per Trading Hub are for “all-in” pricing; there are no other charges payable by the buyer for shipment of metal to the nominated vault location.

Through its wholesale technology and clearing infrastructure, MetalDesk and the ABX represent an alternative global marketplace that empowers liquidity providers and takers around the world. With a wholesale membership structure, this metals trading platform offers a complete downstream client management solution for ABX Members who can brand the trading platform and disseminate it to their client base efficiently and effectively. MetalDesk can be easily branded and set up to function for all varieties of trading and broking Members of the ABX.
