Whether you are an industrial hedger, physical market trader or prop desk there are, broadly speaking, two ways of accessing our markets.
1) A large number of participants access our markets as clients of LME members. Non-members wishing to trade LME contracts can do so through Category 1, 2 and 4 members (and their associated ISVs).
2) Alternatively, participants can access LME markets by becoming members themselves.
