BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The market has well established prices for commodities like gold and silver, but how do you properly price commodities that don't trade very often? How does a company determine the price to buy and the price to sell? The answer is commodity auctions. If you're trying to sell items that are tough to price like rare earth elements, diamonds, or minerals, an auction is the best way to bring together buyers and sellers under an industry-best set of rules, construct the demand curve properly through software driven means, and ensure that the commodities are traded at a true, efficient market-driven price. Our software will help you price the hard-to-price items you need to sell.

TYPICAL AUCTION FORMATS

A commodity auction is actually quite simple - you have a predetermined number of units of the commodity you wish to sell. For example, 220 pounds of yellow cake uranium, 400 tons of copper tubing, or 1,000 gem quality diamonds. The price per unit (10 pounds of yellow cake for example) ticks down every few minutes. Bidders bid at the price and quantity they are comfortable paying, and the auction continues to decrease prices until someone places a bid that causes supply to equal demand. At this point the auction ends, with every bidder paying the price of the last bid for each unit or product.

  • Easy to Set-Up for Regulators
  • Easy to Understand for Bidders
  • Extremely Quick To Finish
  • Results in Less Revenue for the Seller

A commodity auction is actually quite simple - you have a predetermined number of units of the commodity you wish to sell. For example, 220 pounds of yellow cake uranium, 400 tons of copper tubing, or 1,000 gem quality diamonds. The price per unit (10 pounds of yellow cake for example) increases each round. As the price increases round-to-round, bidders will begin to reduce their quantity bid on the products. At the point when the quantity bid is equal to the supply, the auction will end with each winner paying the lowest winning price per unit.

  • Easy to Set-Up for Regulators
  • A Little More Difficult to Understand for Bidders
  • Takes More Time To Complete Auction
  • Maximizes Revenue for the Seller
