PRICING NOTICE: Correction to copper Grade A cathode in-warehouse bonded Shanghai premium

Due to an administrative error, the incorrect Shanghai copper low-high premium, Grade A, cathode, in-warehouse was published on Friday September 28.

The copper premium, basis in-warehouse Shanghai was incorrectly inputted as $100-120 per tonne on Friday. It should have been $100-115 per tonne, in line with the top end of the $110-115 per tonne assessed premium range for electro-refined (ER) cathodes

Fastmarkets MB’s price book and database have been updated to reflect this correction.
