How current are the prices you serve?

‘Real-Time’ is often thrown about by a lot of providers, but when you look into it further you realise that the data they are offering is often delayed or refreshed every 5,10 or even 60 minutes. To us, that’s not real-time.

We make tremendous efforts so that you receive the freshest data in a reliable way, our metal prices are always refreshed every few seconds. Our currencies depending on the Symbol and the volatility of the market can range from a few seconds to a few minutes.
