In order to qualify as a LBMA Market Maker, a company must offer two-way quotations in both gold and silver to the other Market Makers throughout the London business day. In deciding on the issue of reclassification, the LBMA takes account of the views of the other Market Makers on the performance of the candidate company during an approximately three month probationary period.
