LBMA

The Transparency Service For
The Bullion Market

Creating a more accurate picture of the size and shape of the precious metals market

LBMA-i is the transparency service for the precious metals market. The service was formed in direct response to the demand for a simplified and cost-effective reporting service that improves transparency, generates liquidity and meets regulatory demand. Managed by Simplitium, the service collates anonymous and aggregated Trade Reporting data from LBMA members and publishes the total volumes traded.

LBMA-i market data will make it possible for market participants to gauge the size and shape of the precious metals market for the first time in history.

Initially, two reports are available:

1. Trade data for the previous week in Gold and Silver for all four asset classes (Spot, Swaps/ Forwards, Options and Lease Loan Deposits) broken down by date increments.

2. All open trades in Gold and Silver for all four asset classes (Spot, Swaps/ Forwards, Options and Lease Loan Deposits) broken down by date increments and accumulated from 5th November 2018.
