Exclusive: Chinese battery firm halts purchases of cobalt from Glencore - sourcesLONDON/BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese battery firm GEM has stopped buying cobalt from Glencore as the price of the battery material crashed below that agreed in a three-year deal between the two companies, sources close to the matter said. GEM said in a March 14 regulatory filing that it would buy 52,800 tonnes of cobalt from mining and trading giant Glencore between 2018 and 2020, without revealing the price. "The price went down so much," one source said, adding that GEM had no alternative supplier but was using its inventories of cobalt and that the Chinese firm had not attempted to renegotiate the contract recently.

Bond giant Pimco expects 30 percent chance of U.S. recession in '19

Bond giant Pimco expects 30 percent chance of U.S. recession in '19Higher interest rates and fading fiscal stimulus will leave the U.S. economy at a 30 percent chance of falling into a recession, the highest probability at any point during the nine-year economic expansion, Pimco said. A slowing economy will bring the U.S. growth rate closer to the stalled economies of China, Europe and Japan and limit inflation, making mortgage-backed securities an attractive alternative to investment-grade credit, Pimco wrote. Falling growth expectations will depress valuations in the U.S. stock market and leave equity markets volatile in 2019, Pimco expects.
