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

Summary

All the high value metals went up in price as the markets react to ongoing political uncertainty, retreating to traditonal safe havens.

Brass scrap and brass and copper radiators went up in price £25 - £50 per tonne.

The bronze and gun metal grades all went down by £50 per tonne.

The aluminium grades appeared uncertain of late, with a handful of various price changes up and down.

The copper grades continued their bonkers behaviour, rising again this week by another £100 per tonne.

Lead batteries went down £15 per tonne.

Some of the nickel and alloy grades increased in price. Most did not change.
