Via The Desk

We understand the importance of tight spreads when it comes to base metal trading and have a dedicated desk specialising in competitive pricing by sourcing the best rates from a multitude of liquidity providers. Our focus is to find the liquidity provider whose position it would suit best. Clients can trade broken date forwards, carry trades, differential price orders, day orders and GTCs in USD, EUR, GBP and JPY.

LME Options

We are a specialist options provider on most LME metals offering very keen pricing for both writers and buyers of options. We can quote tight bid/offer spreads sourced from a number of providers and we take orders both good for the day and GTC on any trade size. We can run SPAN margin scenarios providing better information on the necessary funds to support any position before a trade is executed so that clients are fully aware of margin implications.

Inter Exchange Copper Spread

Britannia offers the most aggressive margin offsets across LME and COMEX copper, allowing arbitrage traders to hold positions for longer periods and finance LME contingent variation margin.
