PRICING NOTICE: Proposal to amend Metal Bulletin's Rotterdam tellurium price specification

Metal Bulletin is proposing to refine its existing coverage of the tellurium market to provide a clearer distinction between the 99.9% and 99.99% grades.

Metal Bulletin is proposing to refine its existing coverage of the tellurium market to provide a clearer distinction between the 99.9% and 99.99% grades.

At present Metal Bulletin incorporates both 99.9% and 99.99% grades in its Rotterdam assessment.

But owing to an observed disparity in pricing between the two grades, Metal Bulletin is proposing to replace the current assessment with two prices aimed at capturing the individual value of the 99.9% and 99.99% grades.

Subject to a market consultation, the specification for the European tellurium price will be amended to provide a clearer distinction between the 99.9% grade and 99.99% grade.

There will be no changes to the publishing time and dates of the proposed assessments.

The full specifications for the proposed new tellurium prices, are as follows:
