LME Aluminium Premiums

LME Aluminium Premiums are contracts designed specifically to help the physical industry hedge the premium portion of the ‘all-in’ aluminium price.

There are four contracts: 

  • LME Aluminium US Premium
  • LME Aluminium West-Europe Premium
  • LME Aluminium East-Asia Premium
  • LME Aluminium South-East Asia Premium

They sit alongside our parent LME Aluminium contract, combining global liquidity with regional flexibility.

Physically settled, the monthly contracts provide a transparent, supply-and-demand-driven premium price discovery mechanism. Participants can also take delivery of readily available material in non-queued warehouses.



Daily LME Aluminium Premium prices are currently unavailable on LME.com due to technical issues. We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
