PRICING NOTICE: Metal Bulletin increases minimum tonnage for aluminium premium assessments

Metal Bulletin has changed the specifications of its aluminium ingot premiums to increase the minimum tonnage of transactions taken into consideration in the assessment process, effective Monday March 13.

The minimum tonnage for a reported trade has been raised to 100 tonnes, from 25 tonnes, for all Metal Bulletin’s P1020 premiums, including the daily Rotterdam duty-unpaid benchmark.
