Trading levels as low as economic crisis as overseas importers hold off
The prices of rare earth oxide
exports from China have continued to fall through the first
quarter of 2012 as, according to some sources, trading activity
is even lower than during the 2008/09 economic crisis.
Buyers are now ordering less
frequently in the anticipation of further price erosion.
