“It doesn’t matter what the company sells, if they sell cheap, they cut corners to be able to make money.” Adam Osborn, President Ace Steel Supply
Domestic mills have stabilized hot-rolled coil prices and are looking to increase the price further with a 3rd mill hike.
HRC lead times are averaging four to six weeks as reported by market participants.
On July 19, Fastmarkets AMM reported the first mill hike (announced late June) was successful in raising the price. Further, the second mill hike (announced in early July) seems to be “gaining traction”.
In fact, a 3rd mill hike could come early if August domestic scrap prices increase.
The futures market on HRC and domestic scrap are pointing upward.
