An official of a converter described domestic demand for ferromolybdenum 60%min as being stable and that the price rise would not affect scheduled delivery. “Demand is stable and predictable but production and sales costs are not,” remarked the source and confirmed operational activity on schedule to producing 200t this month.

Another converter corroborated the market trend and opined the price could begin to rise now as more end-users return for purchases in international markets, which would have positive price effect on the domestic market. “The market is a little firmer about USD0.25/kg Mo d.Asian Metal Copyright25-9.Asian Metal Copyrightd.Asian Metal Copyright; thus representing a marginal price increase of about USD0.Asian Metal Copyrightp.Asian Metal Copyright25kg Mo d.Asian Metal Copyright,” said the source confirming scheduled delivery at USD24.25/kg Mo d.Asian Metal Copyrightd.Asian Metal Copyrightd.Asian Metal Copyrightp.Asian Metal Copyrightp..

Molybdenum oxide price was confirmed Tuesday at USD9.25-9.45/lb and converters believe the price will rise further in line with international market trend and, therefore, cargoes arriving Japanese ports this week could have different delivery prices depending on what weighted average price formula is used for such cargoes.

And on the future trend, converters expect to increase output for November and whilst one expects 30t increase from this month’s projected output of 180t, another is aiming for 250t for November but these increases are to come from special orders.Asian Metal Copyright since last Friday.Asian Metal Copyright
