Despite ups and downs in the US over the last week, urea markets remain firm. With price increases witnessed in all major export areas and markets, the Nitrogen Index moved up three points. The increase of three points this week is modest compared to those of the last two weeks – over 6 and 10 points respectively.
While urea has again driven the increase in the PWNI, the market also remains firm for both UAN and ammonium nitrate. Black Sea prices for both these products are utilised in the PWNI.
The only downward pressure on the Nitrogen Index this week was again the Yuzhnyy ammonia price. This saw the low end of Profercy’s quoted range down a modest $5pt.
