Did You Know?

Sometimes people are concerned about beginning the transition from manual to electronic transacting.

Is it acceptable to do both? The short answer to this is of course yes. In fact we recommend that this is how people start. By dipping your toes you learn about the system, what you see and what to expect. You can then build confidence and proactively use the system to get the maximum benefit from it. You can download the orders from the system if you need to into a CSV file, or input data into your existing system in the same way you do a manual trade.


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.
