Q. How can I optimise my sales in weeks where there may be a reduction in buying volume?

A. Active engagement with as many counterparties as possible will help with distribution. Widening global reach would also help with this, especially if the softness is within a particular market, and funnel volume elsewhere. Proactive updating of pricing and offers will create a sense of movement in the market and spur activity, as well as targeted pricing by clients or geography. Encourage engagement with dialogue on chat and market updates and even get buyers to put up bids to you help build a better market picture.
