Steel Market Update Newsletter Reports on Flat Rolled Steel Prices & More
For those who are interested in hot rolled, cold rolled, galvanized and Galvalume steel prices – our last edition of the Steel Market Update newsletter did an analysis of the flat rolled steel prices. Steel Market Update covers not only flat rolled steel price indexes but we are the only publication which produces the range of pricing (high to low) being transacted in the market on a weekly basis.
Besides our article on prices last night we published articles about the residential and commercial construction markets based on a report out of the Institute for Trend Research and HARDI.
On Tuesday Steel Market Update participated in a conference call with HVAC wholesalers across the United States and Canada and we report on what we learned about their business and the market in general.
On Sunday there was a fire at USS Mon Valley and we report not only on the fire (which many have reported on) but also the impact the fire may have on the galvanized conversion mills over the next couple of months.
One of our primary sources of information contacted us and provided insights into the Asian (China and Taiwan) iron ore and steel markets.
Wheeling Nisshin published new coating extras. We wrote about them and did a comparison between the old and the new extras.
We provided our readers and update on the status of the RG Steel Sparrows Point “L” blast furnace which is in the process of coming back online.
We provided data on prepainted flat rolled steel imports for the month of November.
We also reported on general industry and economic news (Severstal 2nd HDG Line at Columbus, Empire State Mfg. Survey, NW Pipe and on our next Hedging Price Risk workshop).
Steel Market Update will publish our next newsletter tomorrow evening (Thursday) when we will cover the MSCI inventory and shipment data, the SMU Steel Buyers Sentiment Index, articles on our latest steel market survey which we are concluding today, U.S. exports and apparent steel supply, hot rolled futures markets and many other topics.
