Listen: The challenges and opportunities of hedging with LME steel futures

In today's Commodities Focus podcast, steel pricing analysts Viral Shah and Pascal Dick speak to Shan Islam, head of ferrous trading at Amalgamated Metals Trading (AMT) about the growing market interest in scrap and rebar futures contracts traded on the London Metal Exchange.

The team discuss the various scenarios and questions that may arise when a market participant begins hedging, as well as the positive market reaction to the launch of the LME's hot rolled coil steel futures in the US (Platts) and China in March 2019.
