Offers from Brazilian buyers continued to decline during the week, and sellers' offers were also lower, but trading volumes were limited. Ideal prices are as low as $700/t now, the price declined $100/t over the week.

Overall, buyers remain on the sidelines at most price points in the market, while sellers continue to drive down prices to stimulate demand.
