A set of robust systems and technologies underpin trading at the LME and provide security to those trading on our market.
Allows our members (categories 1 - 4) to trade with each other electronically and takes advantage of straight-through-processing efficiencies.
Our new electronic warehouse receipt system provides a reliable, secure register for global commodities which are stored off-warrant.
Matches and registers trades made on the Exchange. This starts the clearing process.
Creates and manages warrants for LME contracts that are physically settled, and for LME metals that are held on warrant in LME approved warehouses.
Reports derivatives transactions to a registered trade repository.
These support the main systems and make trading possible.
