Metals-API.com is used by thousands of developers, SMBs and large corporations every day. Rock-solid data sources and 6+ years of experience make Metals-API the #1 resource for real-time precious metals rates.
Our spot exchange rates are sourced from a very broad base of commercial sources and banks around the world, each of varying types and frequencies. The larger weighting particularly for major currencies and metals are towards commercial sources as they more accurately reflect the trading occurring in the markets.
In order to ensure the highest possible level of data coverage and accuracy, our system relies on a very distinct “validation and fallback” algorithm, assigning different priorities to each data source and validating each metal/forex rate as it enters our databases. If a source fails to deliver an accurate quote, the next highest provider is queried for this particular currency pair. This enables us to sort out possible inaccuracies and provide the vast majority of all spot exchange rates with a precision of six decimal places.
Why is the Ruthenium market important to traders?
Ruthenium is a hard, white metal. It does not tarnish at room temperatures but oxidizes in air at about 800°C. The metal is not attacked by hot or cold acids or aqua regia, but when potassium chlorate is added to the solution, it oxidizes explosively.
Ruthenium is also one of the rare metals in the earth’s crust. It is quite rare in that it is found as about 0.0004 parts per million of the earth’s crust.
This is a unique precious metal, very known and valuable in the market precisely for its rareness.
