The gold/silver ratio has been a fashionable topic in analyst reports and financial blogs for the past several years but trading the ratio has been complicated
The CME Group is looking to remedy this problem – on October 23, the exchange will launch precious metals spread and ratio futures contracts for gold/silver, gold/platinum and platinum/palladium.
“This is a real example of our basic strategy going forward. We want to solve people’s problems using the liquidity that we already have,” Miguel Vias, CME group head of precious metals, told FastMarkets.
