Beeks has connected to the LME via the cross connect infrastructure within the LME’s data centre. This link will allow Beeks’ customers located in the same data centre to trade into the LME, the world’s largest market in options and futures contracts on base and other metals.
CEO, Gordon McArthur, commented: “Connection to the London Metal Exchange has been driven by demand from our clients looking to participate in the base and other metals futures and options markets.
“We are delighted to have the LME connected to the Beeks Financial Cloud, where we offer technology and broker neutral connectivity within major data centres to key liquidity venues. We are pleased that the Beeks service with the LME will create further trading opportunities for our clients.”
Bare metal servers in Lon1 and LME connectivity will be available on 30 day commitments via the Beeks Partner Portal for existing and new clients.
