PRICING NOTICE: Clarification of some of Fastmarkets’ base metals price names

Fastmarkets is standardizing the names of some of its base metals price assessments principally to identify whether they are premiums or all-in prices.

Although Fastmarkets is specifying in the description of each affected price, this is not new information - the methodology for the discovery of those prices is unchanged. We will, however, update our price methodology documents to reflect the standardized price names.

Please see the tables below for more details of the base metals price names that are being standardized as part of this process:

To provide feedback on these prices or if you would like to provide price information by becoming a data submitter, please contact Perrine Faye by email at: pricing@fastmarkets.com. Please add the subject heading FAO: Perrine Faye, re: Standardization of Fastmarkets’ base metals price names.
