PRICING NOTICE: Correction to pricing rationale of Fastmarkets’ standard grade price, in-whs Rotterdam

Fastmarkets has corrected the pricing rationale for MB-CO-0005 cobalt standard grade, in-whs Rotterdam, $ per lb, which was published incorrectly on Wednesday September 15 due to reporter errors.

The range of offers was entered incorrectly for publication in the rationale as $24.30-24.80 per lb, and has been corrected to $24.60-24.80 per lb.

One bid at $24.30 was discarded from the assessment due to being out of date, but this was not initially mentioned in the rationale. This has been amended.

Fastmarkets’ rationale database has been updated to reflect these changes.

There is no change to the final price assessment for cobalt, standard grade, in-whs Rotterdam, which remains as intended and as originally published at $24.00-24.60 per lb on September 15.
