LiveTrade is the worlds only 2-way market-making screen for buying and selling top Bordeaux. The provision of live bid and offer prices enables both private individuals and merchants to trade their wines online without having to further contact a broker; it creates a single point of call, making trading, in a variety of currencies, more straightforward and less time consuming. It is simple to operate, constantly updated and there is no commission payable. Unlike other trading platforms, LiveTrade is not a matching service but a dealing screen; all wines offered on LiveTrade are our own stock, thus guaranteeing the quality and provenance of the cases on offer and enabling you to guarantee a single point of entry or exit from your chosen position.

At the foot of this screen you will also find The Bordeaux Index, an up-to-the-minute measure to track the progress of both individual wines and portfolios. Scroll to down to read more, or click the quick links on the right to learn more before beginning to trade:

  • We only accept in-bond (IB) stock, in OWC 12x75cl or OWC 6x75cl.

'The Bordeaux Index' tracks live changes in the prices of the most liquidly traded wines on the LiveTrade market making screen. Rather than pricing monthly, our technology facilitates dynamic, daily updates and will allow users to monitor the market at their convenience. It's the most transparent, accurate and simple way of gauging the market performance of Bordeaux. For the first time, investors will no longer need to base their decisions upon monthly market movements. Just as importantly, it does not require a statistics degree for interpretation. The launch of 'The Bordeaux Index' is the culmination of much hard work and planning; we want to provide the best and most up-to-date information for our customers and are extremely proud to be leading such an innovative initiative within the industry. Users are also able to view individual price graphs for all of the wines traded on LiveTrade with data going back to the 1st of January 2008.
