Published daily, the warrant banding report shows the number of market participants with a concentration of LME warrants.
The report is segmented by metal and displayed in five bands: 30 - <40%, 40 - <50%, 50 - <80%, 80 - <90%, 90 - 100%. Figures are reported two business days in arrears. The holdings indicated in this table may no longer be held.
