    Introducing new Fastmarkets-settled LME alumina and aluminium premium contracts
    Alice Mason, Justin Yang, Christian Mildner Recorded: Mar 18 2019 56 mins
    Learn how Fastmarkets assesses daily alumina indices and aluminium premium assessments and how you can manage your risk with the new LME cash-settled contracts, launching on March 11th 2019.

    Presented by:
    - Alice Mason, aluminium & alumina market reporter, Fastmarkets
    - Justin Yang, aluminium market reporter, Fastmarkets
    - Christian Mildner, head of corporate sales, London Metal Exchange

    The new London Metal Exchange cash-settled aluminium duty-unpaid European contract will be settled against Fastmarkets MB’s benchmark Rotterdam premium. Launched in response to the desire for more hedging tools, driven by one of the most volatile periods the physical European aluminium market has seen in years, the new Fastmarkets-settled duty-unpaid aluminium contract on the LME will provide the market with the ability to manage their price exposure. Fastmarkets has developed strong auditable pricing processes and acquired type 2 IOSCO accreditation for its spot aluminium premium assessments, making it the world’s most trusted and robust industry reference.

    The new cash-settled alumina contract will be settled against Fastmarkets MB’s benchmark daily fob Australia alumina index and CRU’s alumina price index – equal weighting given to each index in line with industry usage of indices in physical contracts. This new contract will enable risk management in times of extreme bullishness and uncertainty over future price moves.

    Join us and the LME as we discuss:
    - Recent market trends
    - Key market and price drivers ahead for 2019
    - The need for risk management in these markets and how the instruments work
    - Why Fastmarkets prices were selected as the basis for these new contracts
    - Functionality associated with a basket contract

    Copper raw materials: How Chinese policies are shifting trade flows and prices
    Archie Hunter, Julian Luk Recorded: Sep 20 2018 48 mins
    China’s decision to ban low-grade scrap imports was driven by its ongoing environmental reform measures.

    More recently, a trade spat with the US has led to further restrictions on several copper products.

    How have these policies impacted the copper and copper raw materials markets?

    In this webinar, we discuss the changes we have seen so far this year and how Metal Bulletin has responded in order to continue to provide market-reflective pricing, including the launch of new blister copper and equivalent grade copper cathode price assessments.

    We will cover:

    • The impact of China’s trade and environmental policies on the wider copper market
    • Changing trade flows for copper raw materials
    • How new Metal Bulletin price assessments reflect the shifting market dynamics

    There will be time for Q&A included. If you would like to submit a question in advance, or would like any further information on the webinar, email us: subs@metalbulletin.com.
