The USA, has had sometimes a dramatic impact on prices. European governments were however tacitly supportive of aluminium cartel pricing arrangements prior to the establishment of the LME contract and yearnings for a return to such a regime have been covertly expressed from time to time; but less so in recent years as competition laws have been strengthened. Tin is the metal that has been the subject of most governmental attention, ultimately with disastrous results (see Chapter 7). The history of some of the key attempts to influence and control prices in the major base metals, and their implications for the LME, is given in the chapters on the individual metals.

An attempt was made to reintroduce a zinc contract in the mid-1970s but this was not a success and died within two weeks. Successive attempts have been made at introducing an aluminium contract over the past 25 years but none of these has been successful, including the latest effort launched in 1999. For many years there has been a Shanghai market for non-ferrous metals.

It pays out all future profits immediately and this requires cash payment of future losses simultaneously. This is done on a daily basis. It is ideal for the speculator, but is distrusted by industry's cash flow-conscious company treasurers. Nonetheless Nymex's Comex division has managed to retain a firm grip on the pricing of copper and copper products in the North American domestic markets.
