Global Commodity Prices Rise Again
Development of steel prices: Although spot market prices for iron ore ex China remained largely stable on average, prices rose in the course of the month. The satisfying supply of ore hampers further price increases. Coke coal quotations increased by about $ 9/t. Following the increases of the previous months, world crude steel prices contracted slightly in the second half of November 2017. Within Europe, a reduction of 0.5 % compared to the October average was observed for hot-rolled wide strip. Despite stable zinc prices, galvanized sheet metal has fallen by 3.5 %. Wire rod remained largely stable on a monthly average. All in all, import duties have certainly helped the market somewhat, although some Eastern European suppliers tried to gain a stronger foothold. With regard to European steel prices, IKB still expects a slight decline (maximum -2 %) and prices should pick up again in February.
