The prices discovered on our trading platforms are used as the global reference price and both the metal and investment communities use the LME to transfer and/or take on price risk, 24 hours a day. This presentation will illustrate to delegates how to identify price risk and how to use the LME to hedge this risk and gain protection against adverse metals price fluctuations. Details will also be given of an uncomplicated strategy that enables delegates to use the LME futures market to enhance pricing competitiveness.
