Latin American prices - including Brazilian slab and import hot-rolled coil - will be published on Thursday April 18, while US prices - including hot-rolled coil, steel plate and certain grades of wire rod - will be published on Monday April 22.
The change in holiday schedule will mean that the April monthly average for hot-rolled coil will include one fewer calculation day. The methodology for the US hot-rolled coil index, as well as Fastmarkets’ global pricing holiday calendar, have been amended to reflect these changes.

Fastmarkets’ offices in Latin America and the United States will be closed on Friday April 19 in observance of Good Friday, meaning Fastmarkets will not update US or Latin American steel prices on that day.
