Highlights

  • Materials index is down today therefore most lithium shares traded in the red territory.
  • The shares of Pilbara, Core Lithium, Sayona and Allkem also traded in red today.

Lithium shares on the ASX are expected to benefit from top broker Macquarie's updated prediction for lithium prices last week.

Macquarie anticipates spodumene prices to peak at US$4,900 a tonne (in the September quarter).

A month ago, another broker Goldman Sachs predicted a "sharp correction" in lithium prices because an overstock was on the horizon, which caused ASX lithium share prices to plummet.

After the new prediction, the ASX 200 Materials index has been going up. However, the index was 1.47% down today at 16,150.70 points at 2.26 PM AEST today (June 29). The ASX 200 Index was 1.07% lower at 6,691.30 points at 2.27 PM AEST.

In this article, we will discuss ASX-listed lithium stocks with the highest market cap and their YTD performances.
