Metal Price Fixings?

For market traded base metals and industrial metals, pricing is set by the market participants, but precious metal prices including gold, silver, platinum and palladium are set or "fixed" several times each day by "market makers". This process is not without controversy and many market participants have argued that market makers - primarily large banks - benefit from inside information.

Spot Prices versus Retail Prices

While the price of physical metal products is often strongly correlated to the market value, retail buyers and sellers should not expect to benefit fully from the current market price. For bullion products dealer margins, storage and shipping can add to costs. Items manufactured from base metals will also have associated production costs and margins.

Metal Facts

Between 1944 and 1971, the US dollar was backed by gold at a rate of $35 per ounce and other world currencies were fixed to the US dollar.
