Getting Started

Getting started is easy.   Prior to entering into your first trade, you must make application to become a customer of Alliance and deposit funds to cover your initial trade.   Alliance may extend Trade Credit Lines upon request subject to its current credit criteria. Application is a two-step process.

Step 1 — Determine the type of trading activity that you are interested in.   Alliance offers the following five distinct trading vehicles:

Step 2 — Download, complete and return the Trading Application and the corresponding Account Agreement(s).   These documents will allow us to establish a trading account for you and set up trading lines. The Trading Application provides us with the required financial information necessary to allow us to make a credit determination and to establish your Trading Lines.

**Forward Agreements and/or Collateral-based Financing is only available for non-speculative commercial purposes or where actual physical delivery occurs.


Important Information About Procedures for Opening a New Account — To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identified each person who opens an account.

What this means for you — When you open an account, we will ask you for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. You may also be asked to provide a copy of the following Photo Identification Documents: a valid driver's license, a valid state issued ID card, a valid passport or other identifying documents.
PRECIOUS METALS RISK DISCLOSURE — There is risk of loss from Precious Metals trading. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. Precious Metals trading, even when done by a professional trader, presents substantial risk of loss, and only funds that a customer can afford to lose should be used for Precious Metals trading. You should carefully examine whether or not Precious Metals trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition.
PRECIOUS METALS BORROWING/LENDING RISK DISCLOSURE — There is risk of loss in borrowing or lending of physical precious metals. You should carefully consider the risks associated with such borrowing or lending in the light of your individual financial circumstances.
PRECIOUS METALS GOOD FAITH DEPOSIT NOTICE — Because precious metals prices often fluctuate violently between the Trade Date and a trade's Settlement Date, IBS Metals/Alliance generally require a Good Faith Deposit (cash or collateral) of approximately 10% of the face value of the physical precious metals to be bought/sold to be on deposit prior to entering into binding transactions.

This Good Faith Deposit must be on deposit prior to entering into a trade or quoting firm prices. IBS Metals/Alliance will provide "indication only" price quotations on request prior to receipt of the required Good Faith Deposit. Adverse market movement will require the posting of additional funds/collateral on short notice.
