Delayed publication of Asia stainless steel prices

The publication of Fastmarkets’ Asia stainless steel price assessments for February 3 were delayed due to a reporter error

The affected prices are as follows:

(MB-STS-0018) Stainless steel cold-rolled coil, Asia grade 304 (2mm 2B), cif East Asian port, $/tonne

(MB-STS-0280) Stainless steel hot-rolled coil Asia grade 304, cif port East Asia, $/tonne

(MB-STS-0282) Stainless steel cold-rolled coil 2mm grade 304 export, fob China, $/tonne

(MB-STS-0283) Stainless steel hot-rolled coil grade 304 export, fob China, $/tonne

These are weekly prices and are normally published on Wednesdays.

The prices should, therefore, have been published on Thursday February 3 due to the ongoing Lunar New Year holiday in China, in line with Fastmarkets’ holiday pricing schedule. They were instead published on Friday February 4.
