Houston ferrous scrap consumer trend notice February 2023
Following the discontinuation of its monthly consumer buying trend for Houston ferrous scrap, Fastmarkets will publish a notice detailing month-on-month market changes to consumer buying prices for that market up to and including the March 2023 settlement.
Fastmarkets transitioned Houston ferrous scrap prices to consumer buying from dealer selling in January 2023 after a 60-day consultation period and the publication of fourth months of preliminary pricing from September-December 2022. The original consultation notice and subsequent notification of the change were published in June and August 2022, respectively.
The consumer trend notice for January 2023 can be found here.
