The latest news on pricing trends:
Pricing over the last 30 days has been fairly neutral. Most of the mills raised their pricing the first part of March, but the increases have not had a lot of steam behind them. For the most part prices since the first of the year have been neutral and steady. This is kind of strange in the metals industry. As one source put it, “Prices are stuck in the swamp and there is no clear direction to the market at this time.” Another comment was, “We’ve forgotten what it is like to manage our business when prices are not volatile…somehow it doesn’t feel normal.”(source:Steel Market Update) We look for this trend to continue until there is a consistent increase in demand.
