Markets - Weekly Prices Update - 15 Aug 2015

MRW’s regular reporting of movements in the markets for secondary materials

Summary

PRN prices are unchanged.

There is a pick-up in prices for high value metals.

Across secondary non-ferrous metals, most secondary copper and aluminium prices fell by £10 per tonne.

Pure tungsten and clean tungsten carbide prices have both fallen by about £1,500 per tonne. Analysts attributed this to decline in the Chinese manufacturing sector.
