Price notice: Good Friday holiday

Apr 10, 2019 | 10:57 AM |

Tags  Good Friday, pricing, hot-rolled coil, HRC, plate, steel, Latin America

Fastmarkets’ offices in Latin America and the United States will be closed on Friday April 19, in observance of Good Friday. Fastmarkets will not be updating US or Latin American steel prices on that day.

There also will be no daily issue or newsletter dated April 19. Latin American prices - including Brazilian slab and import hot-rolled coil - will be published on Thursday April 18, while US prices - including hot-rolled coil, steel plate and certain grades of wire rod - will be published on Monday April 22.

The change in holiday schedule will mean that the April monthly average for hot-rolled coil will include one fewer calculation day. The methodology for the US hot-rolled coil index, as well as Fastmarkets’ global pricing holiday calendar, have been amended to reflect these changes.

To provide feedback on this change, or if you would like to provide price information by becoming a data submitter for any of these price series, please contact Thorsten Schier by email at: Please add the subject heading FAO: Thorsten Schier, re: Good Friday.
