Introduction to the London Metal Exchange (LME) and Hedging
This in-person course is delivered in three days in both London and Singapore. The London course often includes a visit to watch the open outcry ring trading at the LME (subject to availability) and is popular with those seeking to network with peers.
Learning about the London Metal Exchange (LME)
A series of course modules are available to enhance knowledge about the LME, the products available and its main functions within the metals market. The modules have been designed as stand-alone courses which can be taken separately or combined to deliver the subject matter content and depth of understanding as preferred by individual participants.
This course, Introduction to the London Metal Exchange and Hedging, is a combination of two modules:
- Introduction to the London Metal Exchange (LME): this course is the definitive primer on the LME and is recommended particularly to market newcomers and as a pre-cursor to attending this course.

The remaining module in this series is:
