Precious Metals Data Feed (PMF)

Introduction

DIGITEC and 360Ts new market data feed, the Precious Metals Data Feed (PMF), brings transparency to the Precious Metals marketplace. Leveraging the same technology and design underpinning the award-winning Swaps Data Feed (SDF), which was also jointly developed by DIGITEC and 360T, the PMF provides a live streaming rate reasonability curve which is derived from banks’ core pricing engines. 

Providing streaming data across the curve in tenors from ON up to 2Y, the PMF consolidates these multiple bank curves in one aggregated market view. Because the data is coming directly from a carefully curated group of market making banks, the PMF captures rare market intelligence that is not available anywhere else in the market today. 

How the Data is aggregated

DIGITEC and 360T have built a pool of PMF data contributors from participating D3 clients and 360T liquidity providers that are streaming their raw banking prices into the PMF. Streams are anonymised, aggregated and filtered. The result is a data feed based on participating banks’ raw pricing, not including any sales skew or client margining. The data is therefore representative and of Interbank quality. Outliers are removed to discount individual skew and holiday rules are included.

The PMF advantage

The PMF can be used for a number of purposes:

  • Evaluation of your outbound Forward curves
  • Assessment of best execution
  • Comparison of true executable pricing in the Forwards market
