Sales price target determined by traders / sellers was US $1,100 / ton (CFR China). But prices for Southeast Asian cargo and deep-water cargo were lower.

In early week, 4,000 tons of deep-water cargo was traded at $1020-1050 / ton (CFR China), the cargo will probably arrive in the second half of August. Later on about 2,500 tons of cargo was sold at $1025 / ton (CFR China) to an end user.

Remaining 2500-3000 tons of deep-water cargo was quoted at $1,000 / ton (CFR), but it was unclear whether the deal was reached or not.
