Fastmarkets published prices for registered copper cathode premiums on a seaborne and in-warehouse basis for the Shanghai market outside of its pricing calendar, and has now removed this information.
Fastmarkets prices commodity-grade base metal premiums on days when the London Metal Exchange trades.
Reporters analyzed and published prices on Friday December 25 and Monday December 28, which were public holidays in England and Wales so, therefore, should not have been published.
Prices published for the following markets on those days have subsequently been removed from the system and will not count toward monthly average calculations for December.
MB-CU-0405 - Copper grade A cathode premium, in-whs Shanghai, $/tonne
MB-CU-0383 - Copper grade A cathode ER premium, bonded in-whs Shanghai, $/tonne
