Prices remain flat at similar levels to September.  Whilst metal supply is also slower than to be expected at the time of year.  Prices for most grades are (yes I'm saying it again.........) historically very high; but are at probably the lowest point in 2013.

This week has seen a mini spike in scrap metal prices taking everyone a little by surprise.

Whilst most of Europe is on shutdown and Asia disinterested the markets have all lifted a little with price increases across the board on non ferrous and steel.

If sustained the prices could filter down to door trade level but over recent weeks the rally's have been over before any sales can be put together.

Bit of an odd week this week - the general lethargy in the copper market was replaced by a 4.5% swing firstly downward and then today (Friday) back upward.  The changes were too short lived to have any impact on prices or flow of material.

Aluminium and lead responded to coppers mini recovery and so markets sit slightly higher than last week.

However holiday feeling remains so the outlook continues to be quiet!
