LME Week 2018:The metal traders’ forum in London

Download

LME Week, the annual gathering of the global metal community in London, is steeped in tradition. Traders meet to exchange experiences, insights and opinions on the state of the market and future metal prices. The event traditionally represents the starting gun for price negotiations for physical supply contracts between industry producers and consumers. Quite simply, a huge amount of metal expertise is gathered under one roof. Global macroeconomic conditions face headwinds in the form of a trade war, an emerging markets crisis and USD strength hurting sentiment. Ferrous metals have outperformed base metals all year, as pricing is driven more by physical fundamentals than by macroeconomics.
