NEW YORK and LONDON, July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ) and LBMA today announced an expansion of data available to the precious metals market, providing greater transparency to this important industry. The LBMA-i Service has been expanded to include daily market information on platinum and palladium, joining existing daily data sets for gold and silver. All market participants now have access to data that provide comprehensive views of the precious metals market on a daily basis.
