October 2022 was the final issue of Metal Market Magazine – the last in a multi-decade-long line of formerly printed magazines, which included Metal Bulletin Monthly and Metal Bulletin Magazine. In recent years, it also incorporated parts of the previously closed American Metal Market and Industrial Minerals magazines.

The baton to carry forward the magazine’s long-standing mission to provide insights and analysis of the global metals markets now passes to Fastmarkets’ multi-commodity platform, found here at www.fastmarkets.com, in its mission to be the world’s leading and most trusted price reporting and intelligence service for the markets that it serves.
