With the physical market at the centre of what we do, we have a long-standing and close relationship with the steel and steel raw material industries. The LME offers seven cash-settled ferrous futures contracts which have been designed in close consultation with the steel community to meet their risk management needs. All our ferrous contracts are tradable on LMEselect and via the inter-office market out to 15 months.

“Steel Scrap Markets – a Bird’s Eye View” is a new report commissioned by the London Metal Exchange, designed to give market participants a unique perspective on the highly fragmented and often opaque world of ferrous scrap markets.
