According to SMM research, at present, some manganese factories in the southern region also reflect that it is difficult to ship the current spot electrolytic manganese spot tax ex-factory price around 13100 yuan / ton, and there are a few sporadic spot cash factory transaction prices that will be lower than 13000 yuan / ton. Some operators think that the overall transaction situation in this market is also very light. Due to the fact that the small and medium-sized manganese plants in the southern region are mainly futures, there are few spot, coupled with less market demand release. As a result, the transaction price of a small number of short-term documents delivered within a short period of time has been reduced to 12800 to 12900 yuan per ton.
