CHICAGO — Nucor Corp. plans to hold the line on transaction prices for concrete reinforcing bars, merchant bars and structural products for a second consecutive month, a move that will likely be followed by other mills, market sources said.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based steelmaker said in a letter to customers Thursday that its raw material surcharge would stay the same in February. As a result, "the net effect is that our transaction pricing ... will remain unchanged," the company said.

The steelmaker had lowered its January scrap surcharge by $1 per ton while increasing its base prices by the same amount, resulting in no net change to transaction prices this month vs. December (amm.com, Dec. 11).....
