After a review and consultation with the market, which ended on January 27, from February 5 Metal Bulletin will price the bismuth market on a weekly basis, rather than twice-weekly as it did previously.

The frequency will be changing to once a week on Fridays.

The new specification is therefore:

Description: Bismuth min 99.99% China domestic*
Price: Yuan per tonne, in-warehouse China
Bi: 99.99% min, no other elements specified
Form: Ingots with no specific dimension or weight
Packaging: Original producer's packing
Lot size: Minimum 1 metric tonne
Payment terms: Cash, other payment terms normalised
Publication: Between 2pm and 3pm UK time on Fridays
