What it calculates: The Gold and Silver Market Profile provides an hour by hour view of the trading day that compares the bid-ask spread of CME listed Gold and Silver futures and spot Gold and Silver on EBS markets at top-of-book, whilst also calculating a volume weighted average price to enable a more equivalent direct comparison. This data is available via intuitive charts and statistical plots, all built on our industry leading Quant Analytics platform.

What it creates: The Gold and Silver Market Profile tool offers unprecedented transparency, enabling traders to compare and contrast our Gold and Silver products side-by-side in order to determine the optimal trading modality and time of day to transact in either market, calculate execution efficiencies, determine slippage costs, and minimize the market impact of trades.
