Pick a price for ferrosilicon

What’s the price of ferrosilicon? Great question. In Asia a large Chinese producer claims to have sold a small quantity at $2,400 per mt,c.i.f. However an Asian mill turned down ferrosilicon at $1,750. On the other hand a merchant sold a small quantity to an Asian reseller at $1,850, all c.i.f.
Many suppliers say they are booked solid for 2018 and have nothing for new buyers or the spot market. And, if they had any free material it was headed to Asia.
Buyers were hoping for more clarity next week.
In the US it has been all index business and no spot sales!
