MetalMiner 2022 Metal Price Predictions and How to Set World Class Buying Strategies
While no one has a crystal ball, MetalMiner will present a 2022 outlook using technical analysis (TA) models and artificial intelligence (AI). This webinar will touch on specific buying strategies that align with both the short- and long-term forecasts. Knowing whether a metal is in a long-term bull, bear or sideways market informs sourcing strategy. This webinar will cover: stainless steel, aluminum, carbon steel, copper and zinc.
Will steel continue to fall or is this only a seasonal slowdown? Will aluminum prices recover and touch long-term highs recently reached? How will Section 232 tariff policy reshape the steel market in 2022?
Join this 45-minute webinar and test your read of the market against MetalMiner analysts and learn how using this type of forecast can save buying organizations money over the long term.
How Artificial Intelligence and Technical Analysis Provide Metal Buyers with Superior Actionable Insights
Fundamental analysis – the study of supply and demand has long dominated the old guard metal analyst firms. The problem with fundamental analysis is that it’s rarely right and therefore does not provide buying organizations with the information needed to prevent margin erosion, manage price volatility or develop sound contracting strategies. Much of the “crystal ball” lies in the hands of the buying organization.
Understanding the trends, and not the specific price points, by using a combination of technical analysis (analysis that uses patterns in market data to identify trends and make predictions) and artificial intelligence provides buying organizations with the tools and insights needed to make the right buying decisions consistently.
Carbon Steel 2022: What types of steel contracts to set up and when to execute them
Rising steel prices have sounded like a broken record. As we get closer to 2022, will we ever see them peak?
Increased steel capacity will certainly play a role as 2021 comes to an end. But don’t take our word for it — just yet. Join VP, Business Solutions Don Hauser and Nichole Bastin, Forecast Analyst, for their insights during the September monthly webinar. Don and Nichole will walk through 2022 buying strategies and discuss the impact of new capacity on steel prices.
With more than a decade of experience negotiating over $300 million of annual global steel purchases at John Deere, Don surely knows a thing or two about steel.

When Will the Bull Market End? (Am I Well Positioned to Get All of the Cost-Downs When Prices Fall?)
MetalMiner analysts Lisa Reisman, Don Hauser and Stuart Burns offer a metal price forecast for key metals such as copper, aluminum, stainless and carbon steel along with strategies to plan for price drops.

How to Set Your Metal Purchasing Strategy in Volatile Markets
Between part shortages, disrupted supply chains, and uncertain demand, metal buyers are seeing more price volatility than ever before. Securing material at the right price should be a top priority!
MetalMiner works with manufacturing organizations across all industries to help them buy as strategically as possible, to avoid paying too much when prices rise (or not receiving cost reductions as markets fall).
Managing Metal Price Volatility: How the Coronavirus Will Impact Metal Prices Throughout 2020
In a time of great volatility, industrial metal-buying organizations want to know how they can time their purchases in order to minimize risk as much as possible.
The coronavirus outbreak has had wide-ranging economic impacts, leading to closures of everything from retail stores to suspension of automotive production (just to name a couple).
Metal prices, in addition to stock markets at large, have taken heavy losses of late amid the coronavirus outbreak.
