Steel

The world export price for hot rolled band (HRB) rose by over $50/t in the three weeks to 16 August, surging to the highest level in over three years at $542/t according to the latest SteelBenchmarker from World Steel Dynamics. This move was supported by strong growth, of $48/t and $32/t, in Chinese and European domestic HRB prices over the same period to $516/t and $605/t, respectively. However, in sharp contrast, the US HRB price was almost unchanged at $683/t.
