Comparison Price Indices for Last Week

Written by John Packard

Steel Market Update and Platts both saw hot rolled prices as rising modestly by the end of last week. Platts is now $12.5 per ton higher than SMU as we are still getting reports of prices struggling to move higher on HRC. SteelBenchmarker did not report pricing this past week as they only report twice per month.

SMU raised our cold rolled average $15 per ton to $515 per ton while Platts remained at $525 per ton.

We also saw galvanized as being $5 per ton higher than the previous week (.060” G90) and Galvalume was up $5 per ton as well to $811 per ton for .0142” AZ50, Grade 80.

Platts kept plate prices at $457.50 per ton.

FOB Points for each index:

SMU: Domestic Mill, East of the Rockies.
SteelBenchmarker: Domestic Mill, East of the Mississippi.
Platts: Northern Indiana Domestic Mill.

Note that SteelBenchmarker produces numbers twice per month. On the weeks they produce numbers we will include them in the average. The weeks where they do not produce numbers (NA = not available) we will not include their outdated numbers in the CPI average.
