Correction to cobalt hydroxide index 30% Co min, cif China

Fastmarkets has corrected its cobalt hydroxide index 30% Co min, cif China, which was published incorrectly on Friday February 24 due to an error.

The index was incorrectly calculated at $8.81 per lb on Friday. After the price’s publication, Fastmarkets learned that a deal at $8.30 per lb that was included in the index calculation should have been discarded because it fell outside of Fastmarkets’ specifications.

The price for MB-CO-0020 cobalt hydroxide index 30% Co min, cif China has since been corrected to $8.86 per lb.

Fastmarkets’ price book and database have been updated to reflect this change.
