research and trading support can "make all the difference in the world
to individual traders." Introducing brokers (IB), like Metis
Resources, occupy a unique position in the commodities trading
business. "Our clients trust us to provide comprehensive research,

unique perspective on the energy market."
That experience helps drive the proprietary research that Metis
Resources provides to its clients to help them make their investment
decisions. "We're so confident in our unique insights into the
cattle, grains and oil markets that we allow interested potential
clients to sample our research updates for a month before they need to
make a decision to join us," Cox said.
"We're committed to providing the best service and research to help
our clients effectively hedge their exposure to commodity prices," he
