Market Analysis: December 2012

Stainless Steel

After three consecutive price increases on nickel in the first quarter of 2012, prices began to tumble from a high of $1.24/lb on T304/L and $1.78/lb on T316/L to a low of $.92/lb and $1.36/lb respectively in September.  This is a redeuction of over 70%.  Prices began to slowly trend back up in October and November before settling back down to $.91/lb and $1.29/lb in December.  At the time of this writing, we anticipate January 2013 surcharges to jump back up to the August levels of $.95/lb and $1.37/lb with demand remaining fairly flat during the first quarter and trending up late first quarter and into the second quarter and beyond.
