LME extends afternoon ring trading times for all base metals

The London Metal Exchange is amending the schedule for ring trading in the second session and afternoon kerb for all base metals, effective from September 23, 2019.

The changes have been made under the recommendation of the LME Ring Dealers Committee and follows the successful three-month trial in which zinc’s afternoon kerb trading time was increased from five minutes to 10 minutes.
“The scheduling changes trialed during the trial shall be made permanent for zinc, and shall also be extended to apply to copper, lead, nickel, primary aluminium and tin,” the LME said in a notice to members on Monday August 12.
