Nucor drops HRC price by $35/ton

Written by Laura Miller

Nucor’s weekly hot-rolled (HR) coil price registered a notable decline this week.

The steelmaker said in a letter to customers on Monday morning that its consumer spot price (CSP) for HR coil will be $680 per short ton (st) for the week of June 24. This marks a $35/st decline from last week’s CSP of $715/st.

The CSP has fallen by $100/st, or 13%, from $780/st at the beginning of June.

This week’s CSP from Nucor is in line with SMU’s June 18 market check, which assessed current spot HR coil prices at $630-740/st, with an average of $685/st.

Additionally, Nucor lowered the CSP at subsidiary California Steel Industries (CSI) by $15/st from last week to $760/st. CSI’s HR price is down from $840/st at the start of the month.
