Adjustment to Cincinnati turnings price
Fastmarkets has realigned its consumer buying price for ferrous scrap machine shop turnings in Cincinnati, effective from the December 2022 monthly settlement.
The price for ferrous scrap turnings in Cincinnati is $140 per gross ton, which represents a $20 per gross ton market increase for December and a $88 per gross ton upward non-market adjustment.
The price had previously been assessed at $32 per gross ton for the November settlement.
Although Fastmarkets believes that its monthly trends have been correct, there has been feedback from the market that ferrous scrap turnings in Cincinnati no longer reflect actual transaction prices, due in part to market dislocations from the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic last year.
The original notice for the 30-day consultation was published October 19.
The specifications for the affected scrap grade are as follows:
Assessment: Machine shop turnings
Quality: Clean steel or wrought iron turnings, free of iron borings, nonferrous metals in a free state, scale, or excessive oil. May not include badly rusted or corroded stock.
Location: FOB US/Canada, specified city
Unit: USD per gross ton (Canadian cities in Canadian currency/net tons)
Notes: ISRI Code: 219
