Imported ISRI grade scrap prices into Taiwan edged up slightly on the back of higher bids and offers, however, transactions were scarce as suppliers and buyers failed to reach agreements regarding the rise. 

This impasse between buy and sell side revolves around seller’s reluctance to offer anything below $170 and buyer’s concern about transacting too high due to continued weak domestic steel demand.
