NEW YORK (Scrap Register): United States shredded scrap prices continued to remain flat week-on-week at $257 a long ton (delivered mill) in the week ended February 20, as per the latest figures from the Steel Index.
Trade has been light as the market took the chance to take stock of the heavy falls in recent weeks. Participants find it hard to see the supply overhang being eroded in March, whilst increased demand is unlikely to take up the slack, leading many to predict further price falls in March, or, at best, stable pricing.
