BEIJING (Asian Metal) 29 Mar 19 – Currently, mainstream prices for Chinese ferrovanadium 50%min are RMB210,000-213,000/t (USD62.4-63.3/kg V) EXW D/A 180 days, down by RMB10,000/t (USD3.0/kg V) from last week. As the demand keeps soft, producers have to drop their quotation to reduce stock. Insiders believe prices of this material would keep dropping in the coming week.

A producer in Northeast China quotes ferrovanadium 50%min at RMB215,000/t (USD63.9/kg V) EXW D/A 180 days and can sell at RMB213,000/t (USD63.3/kg V) for firm bids at the moment, down by RMB10,000/t (USD3.0/kg V) from last week. “Nearly no steel mills are making purchase at the moment.

He believes prices of this material would drop by RMB10,000/t (USD3.0/kg V) again in the coming week.
