In response to user demand, market participants are now able to connect to LMEselect directly to receive a data-only feed.
The new access is of particular interest to clients using algorithmic trading strategies, as they can now trade with the benefit of lower-latency data access.
Orders placed by clients must still pass through approved ISVs or LME member infrastructure before connecting to LMEselect.
Clients of LME members are required to pass the LMEselect conformance test before connecting to LMEselect.
