SHANGHAI (Scrap Register): A number of China’s leading steel mills on Friday hiked their list prices for middle-November sales by RMB 400-500 a ton for flat and long products. The news was followed by a jump in spot rebar prices in Beijing of RMB 110 a ton. 

Spot billet prices in Tangshan also rose RMB 20 a ton. Futures market also surged: the DCE iron ore futures went up to the limit (6.03%) again, while SHFE rebar futures jumped 3.48%.
