The Metal Bulletin Group is proposing to discontinue those weekly assessments for which it also publishes prices based on its established and leading index methodology.
In each case below, the assessment will be discontinued from Metal Bulletin and Steel First and replaced by indices from sister publication American Metal Market (AMM).
The following weekly assessments will be discontinued with effect from November 22, 2013:
- USA export ferrous scrap HMS 1&2 (80:20) fob East Coast
- USA export ferrous scrap shredded fob East Coast
- AMM Ferrous Scrap Export Index HMS 1&2 (80:20) East Coast (fob New York)
- AMM Ferrous Scrap Export Index shredded fob East Coast (fob New York)
This change will also include a move in the publishing day from every Friday to every working Monday. As a result, there will be no assessment dated November 29, 2013.
Following the last assessment date of November 22, 2013, the next price will be published on December 2, 2013.
