Description

• How have the “hotter” and “colder” alloys fared since our last update in June? Has the “L”-shaped forecast for demand outside of China changed?
• What does the opening of the vanadium import window in China in 2020 mean for the market, and how does this compare to the import opportunity seen late last year?
• What does the China-Europe arb mean for European vanadium inventories and prices? Will Chinese demand be enough for the vanadium market to recover post-Covid 19?
• How are concerns over the manganese ore surplus in China impacting buyers’ appetites and ore prices in the rest of 2020?
