Published: Friday, 03 May 2019

Fastmarkets MB will start publishing six lithium prices, previously only available on its Battery Raw Materials Tracker, on Friday May 3.

The prices include two spot battery grade lithium carbonate and hydroxide prices for Europe and the United States, along with four battery grade lithium carbonate and hydroxide contract prices covering Europe, the US, China and Japan & Korea.

These six prices were only available on Fastmarkets' Battery Raw Materials Tracker, however, requests from the physical lithium industry as well as the financial markets prompted the migration to the Fastmarkets MB Price Book.
