Final Thoughts

Written by John Packard

Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the United States and Steel Market Update will not publish on Thursday. We will publish our normal Tuesday issue and then we will publish a limited edition on Sunday, Nov. 25. I know I am looking forward to having a couple days in a row “off” as I get ready for more travel during the month of December.

We will conduct our mid-November flat rolled and plate steel market trends analysis this week. Invitations will go out around 7:30 a.m. ET on Monday as this is a short week. We will collect responses through Wednesday and we will report on a portion of the results in Sunday evening’s newsletter.

We have plenty of seats available for our end of January (29-30) Steel 101: Introduction to Steel Making & Market Fundamentals workshop, which will be held in Starkville, Miss., and we will tour the SDI Columbus steel mill. For more information about the agenda, instructors, hotel and cost, please go to

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

John Packard, President & CEO
