SMM Insight 06:53:44PM Apr 19, 2013 Source:SMM

SHANGHAI, Apr. 19 (SMM) -

Domestic market:
Transactions volumes of spot manganese ore at ports contracted. Some traders lowered offers out of growing pessimism over future prices. Growing arrivals in late April will put further downward pressure on spot manganese ore prices at ports. Some market players understand that holding back goods against current depressed prices may be the best option.

Transactions:
In southern ports, South Africa mixed carbonate manganese ore (lump) and Brazilian manganese ore (lump) were favored. In northern ports, South Africa mixed carbonate manganese ore (lump) and Australian manganese ore (lump) were the most popular.
