CFH Clearing Adds Five Base Metals to its Multi-Asset Liquidity Offering

“In line with market demand, our focus is on offering institutional clients a range of asset classes. We have worked hard to add five new base metals to our liquidity stack as a rolling spot product” – Andy Biggs, Head of Liquidity, CFH Clearing

CFH Clearing, TradeTech Group’s multi award-winning Liquidity Provider and Prime of Prime brokerage, has extended its multi-asset liquidity offering with the launch of five new base metals. As of this week, Aluminium (XAL), Copper (XCU), Nickel (XNI), Lead (XPB) and Zinc (XZN) can be traded against USD.

This latest development is the first in a series of new products and asset classes being launched by CFH Clearing. The FCA regulated firm has secured competitive pricing for its base metal liquidity as a result of its strong direct relationships with commodity specialist Liquidity Providers.

Andy Biggs, Head of Liquidity, CFH Clearing comments, “In line with market demand, our focus is on offering institutional clients a range of asset classes. We have worked hard to add five new base metals to our liquidity stack as a rolling spot product. This means that these base metals look familiar to clients who are used to our FX liquidity and can easily be integrated into their platform, fitting in like any other CFD product.

Andy Biggs

“There’s been an increasing electronification of base metals and we feel that the five base metals we have selected are liquid enough to offer a competitive spot price. We look forward to announcing further products and asset classes in the near future.”
