NEW YORK (Scrap Register): United States hot rolled cold (HRC) steel weekly average prices plummeted further last week, while stainless steel scrap prices on Scrap Register Price Index remained flat.

According to the Steel Index, US HRC prices plummeted further by $13 a short ton to $462 a short ton in the week ended April 03 as Midwest buyers continued to obtain discounts in a quiet market.
