China Molybdenum Price - April 30, 2021

ferro molybdenum image China molybdenum price keeps strong in the week ended on Friday April 30, 2021 thanks to active trading activity. In the short term, insiders will mainly focus on the steel tender after the holiday of Labour Day.

In the molybdenum concentrate market, the overall trading is active, with transaction prices at around 1,730 yuan/ton. This is mainly due to the strong downstream demand and the support of the good international market atmosphere; in the ferro-molybdenum market, steel companies’ centralized bidding and bidding prices are relatively optimistic, which is the main reason for the temporary stability of suppliers’ mentality. In the molybdenum chemical industry and its products market, there was no obvious change in the market at the beginning of the week, but the market improved slightly near the weekend. It is attributed to the increase in end customer demand.
