Fastmarkets AMM is proposing to launch weekly shredder feed prices representing the average buying price of regional auto shredding operations.

The price series will gauge fluctuations in overall shredder buying prices, a leading indicator of where the obsolete scrap market is headed. A regional price for the Midwest, Southeast and Ohio Valley respectively is being proposed.

The three prices will be listed in gross tons and reflect the published prices of shredders. Special premiums given to large shred feed suppliers such as auto wreckers will not be considered. 

The consultation will end on Monday November 12; an update to this notice will be published on the same day.
