No uniformity in US FeCr discounts

The US ferrochrome market is highly segmented along the lines of price, buyers say. Charge chrome discounts under long-term index contracts range from around 15% to 28% for multiple year contracts. Discounts for high-carbon ferrochrome vary from around 10% for the lower-grades, i.e., Indian, Albanian, and Zimbabwean, to under 5% for the high purity material. So, while buyers have a wide range of prices, they are restricted by the quality of ferrochrome they have to buy.
