Did You Know?

You can arrange Contracts on the LFEX platform?

We offer ‘spot’ physical trading on the platform e.g. the trade for the current week. We also support ‘Contracts’ or ‘Programs’ and forwards on the system meaning users can lock into prices to help secure pricing or inventory. The contract content is entirely flexible and can be used with any product. For the user short term contracts (from 2 weeks and longer) and long-term contracts (12+ months) are available.


Q. Can I as a buyer enter a price that I am prepared to trade on?

A. 100% yes. Buyers can not only make specific requests based on their own requirements, they can also add a price to the request that they are prepared to buy at. Sellers can accept this price and trade with you, or counter with their own price(s). Buyers can amend their prices, or withdraw them at any time, and are in complete control of the prices they want to show and to whom they want to show them.

This is a great way of building an understanding of a market where there are both sellers prices and buyers prices are visible.
