ICE Metals Categories


Precious Metals »

Our precious metals complex includes Mini Gold and Mini Silver futures, Kilo Gold futures as well as Gold and Silver Daily futures. Gold and Silver Daily futures are physically settled contracts for gold and silver delivered loco London in unallocated vault accounts. These contracts enable participants in the IBA Gold and Silver Auctions to exchange their auction positions for cleared futures contracts held with ICE Clear U.S.

Iron Ore »

Iron ore is a mineral with metallic iron (Fe) content. High-grade iron ore contains at least 60% Fe content, and the industry has adopted the 62% Fe specification as a standard benchmark for derivative transactions. We offer Iron Ore futures based on both the Platts Iron Ore 62% Fe index and The Steel Index (TSI) daily assessments enabling effective management of price risk around steel input costs.
