The Base and Precious Metals Commodity Management Solution – Commodity XL

Metals Industry

Commodity Trading and Risk Management

The importance of mining to the world should not be underestimated. Metals extracted from the ground are used in buildings, cars, airplanes, jewelry and household products. Another key aspect of the metals industry is that regions where minerals are mined are not necessarily those regions in which they are used.

Base and precious metal prices have both risen in price and become much more volatile over the last decade. Miners and Refiners/Smelters must have sophisticated systems in place that not only transact and capture data in real time, but that also provide critical business intelligence and analysis information to make optimal decisions around trade execution, position management, and physical logistics.
