After a one-month consultation period, Fastmarkets has decided to discontinue the Chinese ferro-tungsten price assessment due to limited spot liquidity for this material largely as the result of competition from off-grade materials.

All historical data relating to this price prior to its suspension will remain available in the pricing section of the Fastmarkets MB website.

If you have any comments on the discontinuation of this price please contact Huaqing Fu by email at: Please add the subject heading “FAO: Huaqing Fu, re: China ferro-tungsten fob China price”.
