Mark Wiggett, editor for Platts Global Market Outlook, discusses US flat steel prices having continued to rise quite sharply up until mid-May, while European prices weakened following a period of stability in April; how scrap prices in the US and Turkey consolidated, then slipped downwards in recent weeks; longs prices in Europe and Asia having fallen recently, while US rebar has been stable, despite fluctuating scrap levels; and how iron ore prices have fallen almost continuously going into early May.
