Fastmarkets AMM will discontinue its US domestic mesh-quality wire rod price assessment, following a market consultation that began on October 11.

The price will be discontinued effective January 1, 2019.

Fastmarkets AMM received and considered both positive and negative feedback regarding the discontinuation of this price, and extended its consultation period by two weeks in order to solicit additional feedback and fully review the relevant considerations.

Fastmarkets AMM concluded that the industrial-quality wire rod price is more relevant and more widely used by US market participants, and that the industrial-quality market is more liquid. As a result, mesh-quality wire rod is less suitable for assessment.

If you have any comments on the discontinuation of this price, please contact Nat Rudy by email at: Please add the subject heading FAO: Nat Rudy, re: domestic wire rod.

All historical data relating to this price prior to its suspension will remain available in the pricing section of the Fastmarkets website.
