    Lynas' (LYSCF.PK, LYSDY.PK) plans to ramp up rare earth materials via its new Malaysian plant suffer a setback, as four ministers say it must export waste material in Malaysia or risk having its operating license revoked.

    Molycorp (MCP +15.7%) soars, taking the rest of the rare earth sector with it (AVL +6.2%, REE +11%, REMX +1.7%). Traders describe the move as the continuation of a short squeeze in Molycorp - whose shares dropped below 6 in mid-November after being in the mid-30s 7 months earlier. Adding fuel is a report Interactive Brokers has said there is insufficient stock available for short sales.

    Molycorp (MCP +3.8%) is upgraded to Buy from Hold at Dahlman Rose, which sees long-term value through its planned 400% production ramp-up at the high-grade Mountain Pass and its ownership of key downstream facilities. Rare Element (REE +1.2%) also rises even as the firm cuts shares to Hold on valuation, as China's Baotou Steel suspends production for a month to try to stem falling rare earth prices.

    Molycorp (MCP +7.3%) leads rare earth producers sharply higher, perhaps fueled by a 363% Y/Y profit gain reported overnight by Baotou Steel Rare Earth (which closed 8.4% higher in Shanghai). Still, the company says retreating rare earth prices from last year's H2 show no signs of rebounding.

    Molycorp (MCP +3.8%) shares are moving up on heavy volume after Pres. Obama, the EU and Japan ask the WTO to help increase China's exports of rare earths.
