Reference and Transparency Data

MiFID II and MiFIR introduce new obligations for LME market data publication.

Reference Data

For each day that the LME market is open, the LME publishes Reference Data detailing the tradeable instruments that are available to trade on the LME, including the ISINs associated with each instrument. The Tradeable Instrument File (TIF) is published at 1.00 and 21.00 London Time daily. For more information and the specifications visit our MiFID documents page.

Pre-Trade Transparency Data

Continuous publication of orders (bids/offers) for tradeable instruments on LME trading venues.

Post-Trade Transparency Data

Details of transactions conducted on LME trading venues in the format prescribed by MiFID II/MiFIR.

Free of Charge Data

For access to free of charge Reference and Transparency Data, please register on the Online Licensing Portal under ‘MiFID II Data Services’.

If you would like to redistribute the Reference and Transparency Data to third parties and you do not already have a licence to do so, please email the LME.

For more information on LME Data licensing, including relevant fees, please visit our MiFID Data Policies page.
