SHANGHAI, Jul. 24 (SMM) –Turning to the brass market, CIF quotations for US brass, Western were roughly USD 5,050/mt last week. Mainstream offers were down to RMB 39,000-39,300/mt on China's domestic markets. Brass prices are driven more by physical demand than by finance-driven trading and are thus relatively little affected by copper price volatility. Profits on imported brass held stable near RMB 1,000/mt last week, but most brass importers stuck to their source-to-order strategy owing to uncertainty in future copper price trends.
