Delay to US domestic ferrous scrap settlement for September

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

The prices not settled by Saturday September 10 include:

• Ferrous scrap dealer selling prices, Houston
• Ferrous scrap consumer buying prices, Houston
• Ferrous scrap consumer buying trend, Houston
• Ferrous scrap domestic consumer buying prices, Hamilton, Ontario
• Ferrous scrap domestic consumer buying prices, Montreal

The delay in settling these markets comes because buyers and sellers were unable to agree prices within the traditional timeframe. Negotiations continue and Fastmarkets will ensure these remaining markets are settled as soon as the information is made available.
