Price Briefing: November 2 - 8
Published: Friday, 09 November 2018
Acidspar prices plateau other than in China; GLOBAL LITHIUM WRAP: Upcoming contract price negotiations suspend global lithium prices; Calcined alumina prices rise as negotiations intensify; Graphite import prices into Europe fall on continued weak demand.
The lack of movement again in
acidspar prices this week adds weight to the argument that
markets have levelled off, although Chinese market participants
reported further domestic prices continuing to rise.
Global lithium prices have
stabilized ahead of 2019 contract price negotiations after 10
months of a downward price trajectory.
