5 December - A Good Value Date

The LBMA and the London Precious Metals Clearing Limited would like to announce that Wednesday 5 December, 2018 will be treated as a normal US dollar and metals settlement day and value dates are accordingly unaffected. Value dates for the remainder of 2018 and for 2019 can be found here.

This announcement is despite the fact that 5 December will be a day of national mourning and federal holiday in the US in honour of the former President George W Bush Snr who sadly passed away last weekend.
