PRICING NOTICE: Amendment of Metal Bulletin’s Rotterdam tellurium price specification

Metal Bulletin has amended its Rotterdam tellurium price specification to make sure the specifications are more closely aligned to existing market conditions.

Following a month-long market consultation, the Rotterdam tellurium price has been refined to only include material between 99.9% and 99.99% tellurium.

An internal analysis of the pricing information collected and extensive market feedback has led us to determine this would best serve the market’s interests.

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

The full specification for the proposed new tellurium price is as follows:

Description: Tellurium 99.9-99.99% Rotterdam $/kg
Type: Assessed range
Basis: Rotterdam
Currency: USD
Unit: per kg
Min lot size: 100 kg (+/-2%)
Payment terms: Cash, other payment terms normalized
Quality: Te: 99.9-99.99%, no other elements specified
Form: Ingots, sticks or powder
Publication: Twice-weekly. Wednesday and Friday between 2pm and 3pm London time
Packaging: Original producers’ packaging
Delivery timeframe: Prompt

The changes will take place from Wednesday July 25.

All historical data relating to this price prior to the amendment will remain available in the pricing section of the Metal Bulletin website.
