The US steel scrap market is getting ready to enter its June buy week after months of stable -- but low -- prices, and the sheet market has seen a round of price increases after a months-long steady decline. Nicholas Tolomeo, managing editor for steel scrap, and Michael Fitzgerald, associate editor for metals, explain how and why prices for scrap, hot-rolled coil and cold-rolled coil have shifted recently, as well as what sort of events this summer could cause big changes in the markets, including imports, exports and labor negotiations.
