Object Trading Adds London Metal Exchange to Global Coverage Network

Direct market access through FrontRunner suite expands coverage of equity and derivatives markets

Object Trading, an independent provider of global direct market access (DMA), today announced it has added the London Metal Exchange (LME), the world’s premier non-ferrous metals market, to its global exchange coverage network. Object Trading clients can now access the full range of futures and options contracts for non-ferrous, minor metals and steel traded on the exchange through its full suite of FrontRunner products.

“We welcome Object Trading to the LMEselect platform and the opportunity for their clients to access the LME’s metal contracts,” said Chris Evans, head of business development at the LME.

FrontRunner provides real-time market data, order routing and pre-trade risk constraints to sell and buy side firms that trade all asset classes. With the addition of LME, FrontRunners’ total global coverage continues to expand on an already wide range of geographies and asset classes across equities, exchange-traded derivatives, FX and physical cash FX.

“Our goal is to have the most extensive, independent and trusted coverage network available for our customers,” said Gerry Turner, Executive Director of Object Trading. “By providing a single interface to all of our global trading venues, customers can now access the LME through the same portal they do the rest of our markets. The result is a superior infrastructure that enhances performance.”
