Minor metals

On March 11 2019 we launched LME Molybdenum (Platts) and LME Cobalt (Fastmarkets MB) to add to our minor-metals offering.

The two new cash-settled futures, along with LME Cobalt (our physically-settled minor metal contract), were designed in close consultation with the electric-vehicle and wider minor-metal communities to meet their risk-management needs.

The cash-settled contracts are underpinned by leading and carefully selected index providers, and are tradable out to 15 months on LMEselect or the inter-office market.
