Delay to July ferrous scrap settlements

Fastmarkets advises that some monthly regional ferrous scrap markets have not settled for July. Fastmarkets typically settles these markets on or before the 10th of the month.

• Ferrous scrap domestic consumer buying prices, Houston
• Ferrous scrap consumer buying trend, Houston
