Cobalt

July 2021 saw the launch of LME Lithium Hydroxide CIF (Fast Markets MB), the latest in our line of electric-vehicle (EV) and minor metals futures.

Like all our EV trading tools, the lithium hydroxide contract was designed in close consultation with the EV and battery material communities to meet their risk-management needs.

Lithium joins fellow cash-settled contracts, LME Molybdenum (Platts) and LME Cobalt (Fastmarkets MB) (launched in 2019) and physically-settled LME Cobalt in our EV offering.

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

powering all our futures

The EV revolution is key to a more sustainable future and we're here to help drive the transition. We have been working closely with the EV and battery industries to identify and develop risk management solutions that are tailored to fit their requirements.

LMEpassport, a key component of the LME’s drive for a more sustainable future, is a new system that does away with paper certificates of analysis and provides the market with a new voluntary register of a metal’s sustainability credentials.
