Delayed publication of Europe FeCr benchmark price

The publication of Fastmarkets’ price assessment for ferro-chrome lumpy Cr charge quarterly, basis 52% Cr (and high carbon), delivered Europe, has been delayed due to a reporter error

The European charge and high-carbon ferro-chrome benchmark for the first quarter of 2022 rolled over from the fourth quarter of 2021, remaining at $1.80 per lb Cr, and should have been published on January 1.

The Fastmarkets price book and database have both since been updated.
