Guests: Ryan McKinley

CRU Senior Analyst Ryan McKinley was the featured speaker on the our recent SMU Community Chat on Wednesday, May 15.

McKinley is instrumental in determining CRU’s benchmark hot-rolled coil price. He discussed his role, his background in steel, and how the index works.

He also talked about trends in global steel markets and how those dynamics could impact the US. McKinley also provided a one-year outlook for steel. He discussed the factors that go into making such a forecast as well as some wildcards that he’s keeping his eye on.
