Where Are We Headed?
Is the market softening? The Purchasing Managers' Index (PM) from the Institute for Supply Management was 51.7 percent in June. While that number remains above 50, a benchmark that signals growth in the economy, it represents the third straight month of slowing expansion for PMI.
But that is only part of the picture. Check out the July Monthly Market Report, which looks at how five key economic factors are shaping the market going forward. In addition, we examine a deviation in price between busheling scrap and iron ore and the potential impact it could have on your metal purchases.
