May 31, 2018 (China Knowledge) - Shanghai Futures Exchange (ShFE) has announced that it will launch China's first real-time platform for trading physical commodities such as chemicals and copper.

The platform will set physical premiums and discounts for cash-settled futures warrants, according to the commodity's location, quality and brand. While all ShFE's futures products such as precious metals and chemicals would be available on the platform, the platform would be restricted to companies not individuals as ShFE seeks to prevent possible big price fluctuations. Previously in March, Shanghai launched crude oil futures contract market that is open to international investors while Dalian Commodity Exchange allowed foreign players access to its iron ore futures this month.
