NEW YORK (Scrap Register): United  States shredded scrap prices declined during the week ended August 05, while  major US aluminum scrap commodities weekly average prices on Scrap Register  Price Index showed mixed trend.

According to TSI, US Midwest shredded scrap  index dropped $6 a long ton during the week to $239 a long ton (del. Mill).  Despite mills attempting to bring prices down $15-20 a long ton for their August  purchases, dealers resisted these bids and hence prices for obsolete scrap have  largely remained sideways in the Midwest.

In the Southeast, downside  potential was growing as mills maintained an aggressive stance due to weak order  books, as well as scrap imports arriving over the summer, as reported by S&P  Global Platts.

The weekly average scrap prices of 5052 Alum Clip, Al/Cu  Rad with Iron, Alum Breakage 50%, Alum Litho Sheets, Alum Rad with Iron, Alum  Radiator, Alum Transformer and Alum Transmission showed almost a flat trend  during the week.

The weekly average scrap prices of Alum Turning, Mix  Alum Casting, 6061 Alum Extrusion, 6063 Extrusion, Al/Cu Radiator, and Alum Old  Sheet traded up during the week, while 356 Auto Wheels showed down  trend.
