Fastmarkets has amended the publication day for two of its weekly Chinese ferro-silicon prices from Friday to Wednesday, effective from Wednesday July 10, following one-month consultation period.

The publication day for ferro-silicon 75% Si min, in-whs China, yuan/tonne and ferro-silicon 75% Si min export, fob China, $/tonne has been changed to Wednesday from Friday as of July 10.

This amendment helps to align the publication time of Fastmarkets’ China ferro-silicon price assessments with the publication time of its other global ferro-silicon prices, which are published weekly on Thursday for the US market and Friday for the European market.
