At the first trade on February 1, 2012 there were 9 members; they opened for an equivalent of a metric ton at $24,640, closing at $24,500. LME closed at $20,290. The transactions were still very low with only 2 lot (10 metric tons) transactions, but INATIN hopes it will change the price taker position to be a price maker.
About 90 percent of Indonesian Tin Association's (ITA) 28 members denounce INATIN: "We won't sell tin to that market." But the initial producer members above are the biggest tin producers with production at more than 50 percent. ITA plans to launch Babel Tin Market (Babel is acronym of Bangka and Belitung Island).
