LME Gold

LME Gold combines daily prompts (including spot) out to 25 days with monthly and quarterly dates along a tradeable five-year forward curve. In this way, the system seamlessly blends the daily structure of the London over-the-counter (OTC) market, and the monthly futures approach of existing exchange offerings.

The contract can be traded electronically from 01.00 to 20.00 (London time) via LMEselect, and through the 24-hour inter-office telephone market.

Market participants can access LME Gold prices for free using LMElive.
