PRICING NOTICE: Reduction in frequency of low carbon ferro-chrome quotations

Metal Bulletin proposes to reduce the frequency with which it publishes its low carbon ferro-chrome price quotations.

Metal Bulletin proposes to reduce the frequency with which it publishes its low carbon ferro-chrome price quotations.

Metal Bulletin publishes two price quotations for low carbon ferro-chrome; material with 0.10% carbon and material with 0.06% carbon.

The proposal comes in response to a reduction in spot activity in recent months, meaning fewer data points are being submitted on a weekly basis.

From January 29, the frequency of publication would be reduced from weekly to once every two weeks (fortnightly), on Fridays. Publication time would still be between 14:00 and 15:00 London time.

The frequency of the quotations may return to weekly if spot activity increases.

Market participants have until January 25 to respond to this notice.

The rest of the specifications would be unchanged and the full specifications for low carbon ferro-chrome (0.10% C) and low carbon ferro-chrome (0.06% C) would be as follows:
