SHFE considering launch of cobalt product futures contract
The launch of futures contracts for cobalt products is one of the Shanghai Futures Exchange’s top priorities for the future, a spokeswoman for the exchange told Metal Bulletin, but added that no firm details have been decided as yet.
The exchange is carrying out research and will extensively survey the market to gather feedback from market players in the cobalt industry, the spokeswoman said.
“The SHFE has futures contracts for all major commodities, now they are focusing on minor commodities,” a producer source said.
The exchange held a consultation symposium with major cobalt producers in the Shanghai on Tuesday December 12 to discuss which products such a contract might cover, market sources told Metal Bulletin.
But so far nothing has been decided, the sources added.
Products put forth for consideration by attendees of the symposium included various refined cobalt products, such as cobalt hydroxide and cobalt sulfate, Metal Bulletin understands.
Against the backdrop of a robust demand outlook for cobalt from the electronic vehicle industry, blue metal prices have surged higher over the past year.
Metal Bulletin assessed low-grade cobalt prices; at $32.85-36 per lb, in-warehouse, on Wednesday, up from $13.85-14.50 per lb a year ago.
The London Metal Exchange launched its own cobalt metal futures contract; in February 2010. The LME’s three-month cobalt metal min 99.3% settlement price stood at $72,500 per tonne on December 14, up nearly 124% from one year ago. LME cobalt stocks totaled 672 tonnes on December 13.
The China Stainless Steel Exchange, also known as the Wuxi Stainless Steel Exchange, established the first cobalt metal futures contract in China in July 2012. Its March 2018 cobalt contract price closed at 572,500 yuan ($86,587) per tonne on December 13.
 
上海期货交易所考虑推出钴产品期货合约
该交易所的一位女发言人告诉Metal Bulletin,该交易所推出的钴产品期货合约是上海期货交易所未来的首要任务之一,但她补充说,目前还没有确定具体细节。
该发言人说,该交易所正在进行研究,并将对该市场进行广泛调查,收集来自钴行业市场参与者的反馈。
“上海期货交易所拥有所有主要大宗商品的期货合约,现在它们的重点是小商品,”一位生产商消息人士表示。
该交易所于12月12日星期二在上海与主要钴生产商举行了一次咨询研讨会,主要讨论合同中哪些产品可能涵盖,市场消息人士告诉《金属导报》。
但消息人士补充说,到目前为止,还没有做出任何决定。
提交专题讨论会与会者审议的产品包括各种精炼钴产品,如氢氧化钴和硫酸钴,据《金属导报》了解。
在电子车辆行业对钴的需求前景强劲的背景下,过去一年,钴金属价格飙升。
《金属导报》对低品位钴价进行了定价;周三,其价格为每磅32.85-36美元,高于一年前的每磅13.85-14.50美元。
2010年2月,伦敦金属交易所推出了自己的钴金属期货合约。12月14日,LME三个月的钴金属分99.3%的结算价为每吨72500美元,较一年前上涨了近124%。12月13日,LME钴库存总量为672吨。
中国不锈钢交易所,也被称为无锡不锈钢交易所,在2012年7月在中国建立了第一个钴金属期货合约。该公司2018年3月的钴合同价格于12月13日收于57.25万元(合86587美元)/吨。
