Markets - Weekly Prices Update - 27 January 2017

 

 

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

Summary

It has been another uncertain week for non-ferrous metal merchants. Prices have not risen or fallen dramatically but price ranges have widened due to regional variations.

Even so, aluminium grade price divided equally into falls and rises.

Copper grades saw very little movement, with three up and three down in price, all by £50 per tonne.

Lead scrap and batteries were up by £50 and £25 per tonne respectively.

There was also minimal price changes for nickel and alloy grades.

All high value metals, except platinum scrap, fell.
