The London Metal Exchange
Wednesday 5 March 2008
£25 + VAT
The London Metal Exchange is the world’s premier terminal markets for metals.
Lead’s relationship with the LME began back in the 19th century, although dealings were unofficial. Lead was first officially traded in 1920 and the current standard lead contract, introduced in 1953, has become the mainstay for international free trade in this metal. The exchange also has contracts for aluminium alloy, nickel, copper, zinc and tin as well as the more recent plastics contracts.
Delegates will leave the conference hotel after lunch for the short trip to the London Metal Exchange, arriving in time for the first afternoon lead ring followed by a presentation and then the second ring. At the end of the rings they will return to the conference hotel.
