Still No Action In Uranium
FNArena News - February 21 2012

By Greg Peel

In what is becoming a painfully slow spot uranium market, last week saw only one transaction completed totalling a mere 75,000lbs of U3O8 equivalent, industry consultant Trade Tech reports. Nor were there any new transactions in the term market. TradeTech's indicative prices remain at US$52.00/lb (spot), US$54.50lb (medium term) and US$61.00/lb (long term).

The same problem has exited in spot uranium from some weeks now, again as explained in Uranium Mismatch Continues To Frustrate.

TradeTech does report, however, that a utility seeking over 800,000lbs U3O8 for delivery in Europe has now short-listed suppliers ahead of settling a deal. Several other utilities are contemplating entering the market in coming weeks for mid or longer term delivery, the consultant notes.

Our archive tells no lies. FNArena warned its readers well before the price of crude oil peaked in 2008 the speculator bubble would deflate with devastating consequences for those holding oil company shares. In August we warned the most severe correction in modern history was forthcoming for natural resources. In 2007 we warned the problem with US subprime mortgages would prove much bigger than experts and media were anticipating (among other things).
