Following a review of its ferrous scrap prices portfolio, Metal
Bulletin is proposing to discontinue those weekly assessments
for which it also publishes prices based on its established and
leading index methodology.
In each case, the assessment will be discontinued while Metal
Bulletin will continue to publish the respective indices.
The following weekly assessments will be discontinued effective
May 10 2012:
Rotterdam Export HMS 1&2 (80:20)
Indian Import Shredded?
Turkish Import HMS 1&2 (80:20)
Metal Bulletin's Ferrous Scrap fob Rotterdam HMS 1&2
(80:20) and Ferrous Scrap cfr Indian Shredded indices will
continue to be published each Friday and the Ferrous Scrap cfr
Turkey HMS 1&2 (80:20) on a daily basis.
Metal Bulletin will continue to publish weekly assessments for
Rotterdam Export HMS 1&2 (70:30), Rotterdam Export
Shredded, Indian Import HMS 1&2 (80:20), Turkish Import HMS
1&2 (70:30) and Turkish Import Shredded on a weekly basis,
but will move the publication date from Thursday to Friday
