On Oct. 10, 2012, the day’s biggest mover on MetalMiner’s stainless price index was the price of Chinese 316 stainless coil, which saw a 0.7 percent decline. This was the first move after three changeless days, likely due to the weeklong Chinese national holiday.
The prices of Chinese 304 and 316 stainless steel scrap, and 304 stainless coil, all remained essentially flat.
The price of Chinese ferro-chrome held steady. For the fifth day in a row, the price of Chinese ferro-moly remained essentially flat as well.
