Bloomberg will be showcasing the enhanced LME page on their terminal, which includes the seven new cash-settled contracts launching on Monday 11 March 2019. Robin Martin, Head of Market Development will give an overview of the LME's markets, the new contracts, and how they offer new risk management and trading opportunities for the aluminium, ferrous, electric vehicles and minor metals industries.
Christian Mildner, LME Head of Corporate Sales, will join Alice Mason and Justin Yang of Fastmarkets for an aluminium-focused webinar on 18 March. Learn how daily alumina indices and aluminium premium assessments are calculated by Fastmarkets, and how to manage risk with the new LME cash-settled alumina and aluminium premium contracts.
Settled against Fastmarkets MB’s benchmark standard-grade low cobalt price, the new LME Cobalt (Fastmarkets MB) cash-settled contract provides the market with an alternative hedging and trading avenue for cobalt price risk: this is particularly important as rapidly increasing market demand fuels price volatility. Antonio Masiero, LME Product Development Manager will join Charlotte Radford, Fastmarkets Minors, Ores and Alloys Editor to outline how cobalt market assessments are made, and how to manage risk with the new LME cobalt contract.
Antonio Masiero, LME Product Development and Anthony Everiss, CRU Senior Analyst, discuss CRU’s Alumina Price Index and how the methodology works; how the rise in price volatility in the alumina market has increased the need for new risk management tools and how the LME Alumina contract fulfils that need; and how the contract is settled using a basket approach.
