Did You Know?

The LFEX RFQ allows users to make offers and requests for forward orders not just the current week?

If a customer has a specific need for inventory at a specific day / week in the near future this request can be put up, and likewise if a seller wants to secure some early sales they can put up offers for that date/week. The system also offers contracts trading for multi-leg orders.


Q. Can my colleagues see / participate in my activity and / or communications on the LFEX platform?

A. The platform will allow ‘internal’ users to share / access information on the platform, and therefore users will be able to see offered prices by colleagues as well as trades and history. It allows you to handle customers when colleagues are away from the desk / office and tracks and records each users activities, meaning your business will never miss an order or sale.
