Molybdenum raw material market:
With the increase in the opening price of ferromolybdenum in the bidding of steel mills yesterday, the inquiries intention of the molybdenum concentrate market increased, but the spot market performance was tight, and the holders were reluctant to sell and bullish. Molybdenum concentrate and molybdenum oxide in stock are quoted at 2800 yuan and 2900 yuan respectively.
Under the circumstances of tight molybdenum concentrate raw materials, strong demand from steel mills, and the impact of the domestic epidemic, the purchase price of ferromolybdenum steel mills and the bulk transaction price rose sharply.

The cost of raw materials has driven the downstream molybdenum price to rise, and the quotations of molybdenum chemical and molybdenum products companies have also been continuously raised.

Holders are reluctant to sell and bullish, and their quotations are firm.
International Molybdenum Market:
The quotation of European ferromolybdenum "made up for the fall", and the market transaction price did not change significantly. There are a few understandings that the shipment transaction was at US$46, and most holders were reluctant to sell below US$46. The mainstream price of molybdenum oxide in the Asian molybdenum market is still above US$19.15, and both buyers and sellers continue to persist in the game.
