Markets - Weekly Prices Update - 6 January 2017

 

 

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

Summary

Most of the high value metals increased in price, except for the silver grades.

Prices have fallen as demand levels off over the Christmas period across most of the non-ferrous grades.

Mixed brass scrap and brass & copper radiators both fell by £25 per tonne.

GM borings rose by £25 per tonne.

The aluminium grades fell in price by £50 - £100 per tonne.

The copper grades fell by £50 - £200 per tonne with low demand after the Christmas break blamed for the price drops.

Lead scrap and batteries both fell by £150 per tonne, while zinc fell by £100 per tonne.
