    • Post in Gold & Silver in a LT rally
      Daniel Lacalle, chief economist at Tressis tells IGTV’s Victoria Scholar that the opportunity for gold looks more attractive for international investors. Meanwhile he says that it does not make sense for investors to buy gold and sell silver or vice versa and that the two precious metals should be invested in side by side with the same directional view. What are your thoughts on this?

    • For those not aware – swap bands for undated commodities are now visible in platform.

      You’ll need to add a watchlist to your workspace and un-hide the relevant columns.


      The values snap at 1600 BST to reflect what we expect to adjust by that evening. Naturally this means that before 1600 BST the rates will reflect the previous day’s funding.


      Swap bands are inclusive of a 2.5% admin charge.


      Any questions, please ask.
        • Great!
