Important Message For Customers:

The Ontario Government has legislated that all non-essential businesses MUST BE closed BY 12:01 am on March 25. The health and safety of our employees, clients and our community is our top priority. To do our part in slowing the spread of COVID-19 we will temporarily close our administrative offices until further notice.

Furthermore, our carrier, UPS, has notified us that all shipments will not be insured and will not require a client’s signature upon delivery until further notice. Given the nature of our business, we are not willing to take that risk with your investments. As a result, we are temporarily suspending all shipments within Canada until UPS lifts these protocols.

Use e-mail for more expedient service.

Please be assured that your orders will be shipped to you as soon as we can. These are valuable investments you are making, and we want to make sure we send them in a safe, secured and insured manner. Should you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at 1-888-861-0775 or email us at sales@sprottmoney.com

Thanks for your patience and understanding in this difficult time.

China commodity exchanges act to contain virus-driven volatility
By Thomson Reuters 18 days ago 240 Views No comments

BEIJING, March 20 (Reuters) - China's commodity exchanges have rolled out a series of measures - from raising margin requirements and trading limits to halting trade completely - to help maintain market stability as coronavirus panic spreads across the globe.

Below is a list of some of the actions taken, affecting trade in everything from eggs to gold in the world's biggest commodities consumer. CRUDE OIL/RUBBER * The Shanghai International Energy Exchange (INE), responding to a collapse in global oil prices, raised the trading margin on its crude oil futures contract to 11% from settlement on March 11, and hiked the trading limit to 10% from March 12.

* On Tuesday, the INE said it would waive delivery fees for its crude oil and TSR 20 rubber futures from April 10 this year until Jan. 8, 2021 to ease financial pressure on market participants. * The trading margin on TSR 20 rubber futures will be increased to 11% from 10% after settlement on March 23 and the trading limit raised to 9% from 8%, according to a notice on Thursday.

SHFE * The Shanghai Futures Exchange (ShFE) said on March 13 it was raising trading margins and limits on a large number of commodity futures contracts starting this week, including base metals, steel rebar, hot-rolled steel coil and fuel oil. * On Thursday, it said the trading margin for aluminum, zinc and lead futures contracts would be further raised to 10% from 8% after settlement on March 23, while the trading limit on those contracts will be increased to 8% from 6%. * On Tuesday, the bourse had said it would also waive delivery fees for 16 products - including base metals, steel, gold, silver and fuel oil - from April 10 until Jan. 8, 2021

PRECIOUS METALS * The Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) on Monday said it would raise margin requirements and trading limits for gold and silver contracts after big price fluctuations. * On Tuesday, the bourse said it would impose a one-day halt on trading in its Ag (T+D) silver contract on March 18, after the contract fell 13%, and would take measures to reduce market risk. * Silver trading on the SGE resumed on Thursday with the margin requirement raised to 19% from 14% and the trading limit increased to 18% from 13%, but the exchange said after the market closed the margin and limit would be lowered to 16% and 15%, respectively. DCE

* The Dalian Commodity Exchange (DCE) said on March 4 it would raise trading limits and margins on its egg futures contracts for May and June delivery. * It then raised transaction fees for the April and May egg contracts. (https://bit.ly/2QnykWT) * The DCE said on Thursday it would raise the trading limit for styrene futures to 9% and margins to 11% from settlement on Mar.19.
