    Anyone tracking the ferrous scrap market during the past several years likely has seen extreme volatility in pricing. For ferrous scrap consumers, especially electric arc furnace (EAF) operators dependent on ferrous scrap for a majority of their raw material intake, purchasing large blocks of raw material on a monthly basis when prices may swing significantly can play havoc with their balance sheets. To mitigate the negative effects of fluctuations, a number of companies are promoting the use of financial tools such as swaps and derivatives they claim can help smooth out ferrous scrap pricing.

  • Ferrous Prices Remain Stable in October

    Posted on October 21st, 2011 admin No comments

    Stability was the most common trait for ferrous scrap prices for the seventh consecutive month, although most grades in most regions experienced a slight downward tilt in October. October spot pricing for ferrous scrap showed slight variations from September, but stayed in the same narrow range in which it has been since April 2011. By late October, some recyclers were expressing concern about declining melt rates at domestic mills, but purchase prices seemed to indicate that demand has been sufficient enough to keep the market stable.

In late September, however, recyclers began anticipating a drop in scrap prices to mirror flat-to-declining prices for finished steel and dropping prices for copper and some other traded metals

He says post-industrial HDPE (high-density polyethylene) still fetches 30 cents per pound “if you know where to sell it.” However, pricing for post-consumer HDPE ranges from 15 to 20 cents, again depending on the market.
