A reminder that I will be in New York City beginning on Monday and will not return to my office until late on Wednesday afternoon. I will be attending a number of steel-related meetings and conferences that surround the World Steel Dynamics Steel Success Strategies Conference. I do have some time slots open on Tuesday morning and mid afternoon should you be interested in touching base with me. You can text me or call me at: 770-596-6268 if you happen to have a spare moment. I should be close to the Sheraton Hotel most of the day on Tuesday.

Our next flat rolled steel market trends analysis will begin at 8 AM ET on Monday. If you receive an invitation please take a few moments to click on the button and to complete the questionnaire. We thank you in advance for your time which we know is valuable.

If you have already registered for our Steel Summit Conference – thank you. If you have not, well we highly recommend that you do. Our program is outstanding. The networking will be second to none and even the food will be darn good for a conference… If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our office at 800-432-3475 or by email:

Our next Steel 101 workshop will be held in Memphis, Tennessee on November 15-16, 2016 and we will be touring the brand new Big River Steel. Space is limited. Registration is on our website.

As always your business is truly appreciated by all of us here at Steel Market Update.

What's the tea in the steel industry this week? Here's the latest SMU gossip column! Just kidding... kind of. Yes, some of the comments we receive in our weekly flat-rolled market steel buyers' survey are honestly too much to put into print. Some make us laugh. Some make us cringe. Some are cryptic. Most are serious. We appreciate them all. Below are some highlights from our survey results this week. Some of the comments that we can share with you are also included, in italics, in the buyers' own words, with minimal editing on our part.
