Today, the prices of rare earth oxides and metals continue to decrease. The mainstream transaction price in the praseodymium and neodymium oxide market is lowered by 810,000-815,000 yuan/ton, and the mainstream transaction price in the praseodymium and neodymium metal market is lowered to 980,000-990,000 yuan/ton. The order situation of downstream magnetic material enterprises has not improved, and the purchasing demand has decreased. We are cautiously watching the price trend of raw materials. Metal factories and separation factories have relatively few transactions.
Dysprosium and terbium products of medium and heavy rare earths are relatively strong. The mainstream price of dysprosium oxide is 2.34-2.35 million yuan / ton, and the mainstream price of terbium oxide is 13.60-13.7 million yuan / ton. The enthusiasm for buying is not high, and a small amount just needs to be followed up.
