PRICING NOTICE: Amendment to publication day of Chinese ferro-chrome price assessments

After a market consultation, Fastmarkets will amend two of its Chinese ferro-chrome price assessments.

After a consultation period that ran from Friday July 14 to August 14, Fastmarkets has amended the publication day of its Chinese ferro-chrome price assessments to Tuesday from Friday.
The prices involved are:
MB-FEC-0005 Ferro-chrome contract 6-8% C, basis 50% Cr, ddp China, yuan/tonne
MB-FEC-0006 Ferro-chrome spot 6-8% C, basis 50% Cr, ddp China, yuan/tonne
The weekly prices above will continue to be published every Friday until Friday August 14 and will then be published every Tuesday starting from Tuesday August 18.
A move to Tuesday pricing will increase the available resources for collecting data and bring the chrome pricing in line with chromite pricing, Fastmarkets believes.
No other changes will be made to the specifications at this time.
The amendments to the price specifications will be as follows, with changes highlighted in bold:
