Detroit, Hamilton down $20 on primes, sideways on cuts
General market report for Detroit and Hamilton
Following one of the most brutal stretches of cold weather in more than two decades, cut grades in Detroit opened the February market sideways. That’s still off $30 from December prices, but an indication that shredded and plate and structural grades are in increasingly tight supply. In Canada, Hamilton mills were offering to buy cut grades at down $5 Cdn from January prices, which is equal to $4 U.S.
