PRICING NOTICE: Correction to index for manganese ore 44%, cif Tianjin

Fastmarkets has corrected its manganese ore 44%, cif Tianjin, index, which was published incorrectly on Friday January 22 due to a calculation error.

Fastmarkets’ pricing database, MInD, has been updated to reflect this change.

This was caused by an error in the normalization process. Measures have been applied to avoid this error from happening again.
