Trade Physical Online with the Security of A Central Limit Order Book:

Our MetalDesk platform provides direct, unrestricted access to the ABX, the world’s leading electronic exchange for ALLOCATED physical precious metals. You can now trade physical gold, silver and platinum wherever you are using our online platform in the same way that you would trade stocks, forex or futures. Safely invest in the precious metals of your choice via this easily accessible electronic environment, 23 hours a day, 5 days a week. Our MetalDesk allows you to monitor live market prices through 11 global hubs enabling instant order execution and trade settlement. This means you won’t miss any trading opportunities. Once you have funded your trading account, you can trade straight away and once you have purchased, you are able to sell or take delivery of your holdings immediately.

Trading through a central limit order book brings increased transparency, better prices and tighter spreads than previously available to physical precious metal traders and investors. 11 global trading, storage and delivery locations provide you with the opportunity to optimise your trading activities and diversify your investment location.

Better Liquidity, Better Pricing, Better Market Depth:

Multiple liquidity providers located around the world provide around the clock live pricing. Through our MetalDesk you have the ability to tap into and enjoy the exchange’s higher liquidity and tighter spreads; benefits that are key considerations to any trader or investor.

By showing all the prices in each location for each precious metal product traded, we give an indication of total market supply and demand. This in turn gives the investor the ability to identify the best location to make their investment.

There are also a variety of reports enabling the investor to monitor real-time unrealised and realised P&L on their trades while the ability to export periodic statements make investment reporting easy.

Security, Storage and Full Legal Title Held By the Investor:

The large majority of purchased gold in the world today is unallocated, especially when bought through the banking system. Concisely put, this means that you do not own the gold but the bank owns the gold and you are a creditor to the bank, which in turn opens you up to counterparty risk. The ABX has redefined and circumvented the way gold has traditionally been traded. All bullion on the exchange is stored on an ‘allocated’ basis. This means that legal title remains with you, the client, at all times and that your ownership and legal title to the bullion would survive any insolvency scenario. Any creditors of the exchange would have no claim to your gold being held in the vaults.

All bullion is comprehensively insured and audited via Triple-layered security features include the use of leading third-party vaulting providers: Malca-Amit & Loomis, and auditing and inspection specialists: BDO & Inspectorate.

Use Your Gold as Collateral:

Conventionally, holding physical investments such as gold meant that the value stored in that asset could not be used until the holding was sold and returned to cash. We’ve provided a solution to this constraint. Using our electronic Vault Warrants, (eVWS), you are able to now use your gold as collateral. This cross-product margining offering allows our clients to maximize trading opportunities and hedge exposures as effectively as possible.

Global Trade Across 11 Locations:

The exchange brings together 11 global vaulting, storage and delivery locations. This gives you the opportunity to optimise your trading activities and diversify your investment locations. The exchange’s truly global attribute is the ability it provides to traders to sell gold in one location and buy it again in another location, whether you are taking advantage of opportunities that present themselves in a particular Trading Hub or simply moving your wealth around the world-outside of the banking system.

Multiple Gold, Silver and Platinum Contracts:

Invest in your favourite product or diversify your holdings across a range of gold, silver and platinum bars and coins.

Why Own Physical Gold

1. Gold provides excellent diversification due to its lack of correlation with traditional asset classes.
As changes in the gold price are not necessarily correlated with changes in the price of other mainstream asset classes, gold brings considerable diversification benefits to a portfolio.

2. Gold provides tail-risk protection by consistently reducing portfolio losses incurred in extreme circumstances.
Gold helps manage risk more effectively by protecting against infrequent or unlikely but consequential negative events, sometimes called tail-risk.

3. Gold is a high quality and liquid asset.
Physical gold is one of the every few liquid assets which involve neither a liability nor a creditor relationship.

4. Gold hedges against extreme inflation situations.
For example; deflation or hyperinflation.

5. Gold protects against currency devaluation.
Gold typically exhibits a negative correlation with the US dollar, as well as other currencies.

6.Studies suggest an allocation of between 5% to 25%
Other precious metal paper contracts, otherwise known as ‘unallocated' contracts, such as OTC trades and CFDs, allow you to get exposure to the price action of the metal, but not own legal title to the underlying physical asset. As the holder of an unallocated contract you are an unsecured creditor of the counterparty who sold you the contract.
The counterparty risk associated with unallocated trading does not give these paper contracts the same safe-haven status as an allocated physical precious metal investment.

The counterparty risk associated with unallocated trading does not give these paper contracts the same safe-haven status as an allocated physical precious metal investment.

When trading through MetalDesk, you hold allocated title to your gold, silver or platinum investment. This ensures that your ownership remains intact and that your investment is always your outright legal property: a true safe-haven trade or investment.
