2 The LME: development and structure surplus metal to other more remote and outlying European locations from which there was less likelihood of demand until stocks in more _popular and convenient warehouses were exhausted. This 'dislocation' of stocks , plus the far higher cost of removing the metal from the warehouse and then transporting it to where it was really needed, had the effect of dramatically raising premiums to the fabricating industry. If the problem of hugely escalating premiums is not addressed, the danger arises of disengagenlent and alienation.

During that time a type of option called 'Asian' enjoyed great popularity with primary producers of copper. The 'strike' prices of 'Asian puts ' are often well below the current level of prices and are usually structured for 3-, 6- , 12-month or nowadays even longer periods forward. The strike prices are normally average prices for each month covered under the duration of the option. The 'puts' are then automatically exercised or abandoned on the basis of the LME official average cash seller's quotation for each month.

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.
