Would you like to trade aluminum, copper, tin, nickel, zinc, lead, etc futures on IB?

Right now you can't!

IB does not have these contracts available though I had contact with the customer service rep and that person said if there was enough demand they would consider adding the London Metals Exchange (LME) which would allow you to trade all these products and more.

This seems like a big hole in the product offering of a broker that claims to trade the worlds markets. I do think IB is a great broker, but for me I have strategies that would benefit from trading metals.

If you'd like to be able to trade metal futures please respond to this thread AND if you're an IB customer please contact their representatives to show your interest.

Thank you!

Why not use the Copper on the CME?
