PRICING NOTICE: Delayed publication of cobalt price assessment

The publication of Fastmarkets’ alloy grade and standard grade cobalt price assessments for August 9 were delayed because of editorial issues stemming from the high volume of pricing inputs.

The Fastmarkets price book and database have both since been updated.

Fastmarkets assessed alloy grade and standard grade cobalt prices at $13.60-15.15 per lb and $13.05-14.30 per lb, in-warehouse, on Friday August 9, both up from $12.50-14 per lb and at $12.25-13.95 per lb respectively.
