From March 1 to March 5, 2021, the market price of antimony ingot in East China rose slightly, at 59750 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week and 68750 yuan / ton at the end of the week, with an increase of 15.06%
The antimony commodity index on March 8 was 97.10, up 1.39 points from yesterday, down 5.10% from 102.32 points (2012-10-16), the highest point in the cycle, and up 106.68% from 46.98 points, the lowest point on December 24, 2015. (Note: period refers to the period from September 8, 2012 to now).
The price of antimony concentrate has been rising all the way this week. The recovery of domestic antimony mining is slow, and there is no clear news of resumption of work in the near future. Recently, domestic smelting mainly relies on imported ore sources. Affected by foreign public health events, the situation of imported antimony ore is not optimistic. There are only sporadic small batch imports in the past half a year, which is a drop in the bucket to alleviate the shortage of domestic ore supply. On March 8, the quotation of European Strategic small metal was 10250 US dollars / ton, while on March 4, the quotation of European Strategic small metal was only 9750 US dollars / ton, which was increased by 500 US dollars / ton for three consecutive days. The rise of international antimony ingot price further affected the domestic spot market price. The domestic antimony ingot market price was increased for five consecutive days, with a cumulative increase of 900 yuan / ton.
As of March 8, the average price of 2 ﹥ low bismuth antimony ingot was 68500 yuan / ton, 1 ﹥ antimony ingot was 70000 yuan / ton, 0 ﹥ antimony ingot was 71000 yuan / ton, and the average price of 2 ﹥ high bismuth antimony ingot was 64000 yuan / ton, which was about 1000-1200 yuan / ton higher than that at the beginning of the month. The market price of antimony trioxide continued to rise along with the trend of antimony ingot. As of August 8, the average price of antimony trioxide was 99.5% at 64000 yuan / ton and 99.8% at 65000 yuan / ton, which was about 1000-1200 yuan / ton higher than that at the beginning of the month.
According to the price monitoring of the business community, in the list of commodity prices in the 09th week of 2021 (3.1-3.5), there were 13 kinds of commodities in the non-ferrous sector that rose month on month, among which 5 kinds of commodities rose by more than 5%, accounting for 22.7% of the total number of commodities monitored in the sector; the top 3 commodities were antimony (15.06%), praseodymium oxide (10.06%) and dysprosium metal (5.88%). There were 8 kinds of commodities with a month on month decrease, and 4 kinds of commodities with a decrease of more than 5%, accounting for 18.2% of the number of commodities monitored in the sector; the top 3 products with a decrease were nickel (- 12.39%), cobalt (- 8.66%) and silver (- 6.31%). The average rise and fall this week was 0.53%. Most of the nonferrous metal market rose
At present, it is difficult to ease the tight supply at the ore end. It is difficult to increase the quantity of domestic and overseas imports in the short term. The smelter can only continuously increase the ex factory price to achieve the purpose of reluctant to sell. Therefore, the price of antimony ingot still has room to rise in the future.
