The China Smelters Purchase Team (CSPT) finally decided to set the floor price of spot TCs for imported copper concentrate at $ 86/tonne and ¢ 8.6/lb in Q3. 

SHANGHAI, Jul. 3 (SMM) – The China Smelters Purchase Team (CSPT) finally decided to set the floor price of spot TCs for imported copper concentrate at $ 86/tonne and ¢ 8.6/lb in Q3. 

If spot TCs fail to reach $ 86/tonne in Q3, the floor price will be simply symbolic, SMM understands. 

The level of $ 86/tonne was considered a relatively high price in previous spot deals. Some market players see a small chance for spot TCs to exceed $ 86/tonne in Q3.

Some smelters, however, are optimistic that spot TCs will probably rise further to $ 85-90/tonne in Q3 as they expect concentrate supply in spot market to continue recovering.
