Update to Fastmarkets’ base metals publication schedule for September 19, 2022

Fastmarkets is revising its base metals publication schedule for September 19 following a decision by the London Metal Exchange to partially suspend ring-trading on the day, out of respect for the state funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Ring-trading will resume on Monday afternoon, the LME said in a statement published on Tuesday September 13. The morning session that would have overlapped with the scheduled funeral will be cancelled.

The following prices will now be published by 4pm London time:

• Alumina index, fob Australia

• Aluminium P1020A premium, in-whs dup Rotterdam

• Copper grade A cathode premium, in-whs Shanghai

• Copper grade A cathode ER premium, bonded, in-whs Shanghai

• Copper grade A cathode SX-EW premium, bonded, in-whs Shanghai

• Copper grade A cathode premium, cif Shanghai

• Copper grade A cathode ER premium, cif Shanghai

• Copper grade A cathode SX-EW premium, cif Shanghai.

The daily base metals import price calculations for copper, zinc aluminium and nickel, in yuan per tonne and $ per tonne, will also be published as usual on September 19, using the first available LME prices.

No other base metals pricing will be affected by the half-day closure on September 19.

Because daily base metals prices will now be published on September 19, the day will count as a pricing session in Fastmarkets’ calculation of the monthly averages for the prices listed above.

Changes to the schedule for minor metals, ores and alloys pricing will remain as outlined in the pricing notice of September 12.
