SMU Market Intelligence for All

Written by John Packard

Why leave your employees in the dark?

Last week we had one of our member companies upgrade to an Enterprise membership, and they added 429 of their employees to their account. Today, we had a steel mill ask to add another 100 people onto their existing account. From our inception, the goal of Steel Market Update was to offer an option to companies so that all their employees could be informed as to what was happening in the steel and related markets without breaking their bank account.

SMU has “Enterprise” memberships, which means you are allowed an unlimited number of your employees to receive our newsletters and access to our website.

SMU MobileWe have Enterprise memberships available for either Executive or Premium level access. We also have them broken out by unlimited number of users within North America (USA, Canada, Mexico) or globally.

Executive Enterprise includes our Executive Newsletter, which is published three times per week (Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings), our pricing indices for hot rolled, cold rolled, galvanized, and discrete plate steels; sentiment index, price momentum indicator, price estimator, access to much of the information contained in our website and much more.

Premium Enterprise includes everything in the Executive level noted above plus the premium newsletter produced approximately once per week, access to our every other week survey results, our SMU Service Center Inventories/Shipments indices on flat rolled and plate steels, Key Market Indicators, Currencies for Steel Trading Nations, and many other SMU proprietary products. We are also receiving new content from CRU analysts on a variety of topics from around the world that are being included in our Premium newsletters.

You can learn more about your company becoming an Enterprise member by contacting Paige Mayhair at 724-720-1012 or by email: You are also welcome to reach out to me personally at
