A single source for base metal prices, both ferrous as well as non ferrous metals; the Metal Price Charts allow you to compare the price changes for iron, steel, copper, zinc, tin, and other commodities over a variety of time periods.
These price charts reflect the real time prices of various metals available at London Metal Exchange (LME). Renowned for its open-outcry trading between ring dealing members that takes place on the market floor, LME is a 24-hour electronic metal trading market. Every day, the LME declares a set of official prices that are fixed from the open-outcry trading. This trading is highly liquid and industry has the confidence that the prices reflect the actual current supply / demand situation.
The prices reflected by the metal price charts are used by trade and industry across the world for the movement of physical materials over the production cycle.
