Visiting the Ring

Unfortunately, visit requests from the general public and educational bodies cannot be accommodated. LME members and groups associated with the metals industry should make written requests to visit the LME.

The Ring 
The Ring, our open-outcry trading floor, is central to the process of price discovery. The LME Official Price, LME Unofficial Price and LME Closing Price are all, or in part, discovered on the trading floor.

Ring sessions & trading times 
Each LME metal is traded in highly liquid five-minute Ring sessions which are themselves representative of global supply and demand. 

Trading on the Ring begins 11.40 and closes at 17.00.
