FREE WEB SEMINAR: Trading CME Group’s fob Australia (Metal Bulletin) alumina futures

Metal Bulletin is hosting a free web seminar on Tuesday September 20 at 9am London time alongside CME Group to discuss the new fob Australia alumina futures contract, settled against Metal Bulletin’s benchmark alumina index.

Launching on-exchange on September 26, the new contract is designed to provide a direct and transparent solution for hedging price risk, as alumina prices continue to detach themselves from the aluminium market.
Tuesday September 20
9am London time
Join Metal Bulletin and CME Group as they discuss:
- Recent trends in the alumina market and the challenges facing market players
- How Metal Bulletin calculates its benchmark alumina price
- Key contract features and useful applications
- How the new futures complement CME Group's existing aluminium risk-management toolset
- Insights the market can gain from the new contract
An overview of the CME’s alumina hedging tool and Metal Bulletin’s alumina index methodology will be followed by time for questions from attendees.
