ASX lithium shares are putting in a mixed performance today.
While a few lithium stocks are smashing the 1.2% loss posted by the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) on Friday afternoon, others are significantly trailing the benchmark index.
This comes as lithium prices remain near record highs amid strong global demand for electric vehicle and grid storage batteries.
We'll kick off with today's two worst-performing ASX lithium shares.
