Example text

Producers have also learned the most important lesson of all: that contangos naturally encourage hedge selling. In the past, many producers have made the mistake of succumbing to fabricator and merchant requests for early quotational periods on their long-term supply contracts during 'contango' conditions. Such early pricing allowed the fabricator to 'earn' part or all of the contango until they had to pay for the metal on arrival. Merchants were the educating force in this respect. But the impact of early pricing was to encourage hedge selling.

State trading had made no such contribution and had hampered rather than facilitated Britain's post-war industrial recovery. As merchants, agents, brokers and LME settled down to free trade once more, there gradually issued forth a collective sigh of relief. 2 Price determination and control But there were soon fresh dangers looming for the reborn LME and the international merchant/broker community. Over the near 130 years of the LME's existence old battles have been fought and refought often with new weapons but invariably on the same territory.

Long Beach and Los Angeles on the West Coast were at that time important ports for frequent exports of copper from the USA to Japan, China, South Korea, etc. when the premiums in those locations are high. LME prices are the basis of all international copper contracts. Moreover the LME price has been historically and consistently higher than Comex. So, high premiums over LME in the Far East meant that LA/Long Beach was popular for exports to that region. For example the sea journey to Japan is only two weeks or less, but from Chile or Peru it is five weeks.
