Slide 1

The Art of Timing Your Buy

Some may argue that timing purchases appears speculative. Spot buying, however, also means speculative buying! Merely having a specific forecasted price, via fundamental analysis (e.g. supply and demand) rarely equates to an actionable buying strategy, particularly with high market volatility. Understanding a metal’s short term and long term price trend allows buyers to alter strategies in falling, sideways, and rising markets – as well as save money by timing the buy.

How to Use Contracting Indexes

Have an upcoming negotiation for 304 stainless steel for example? Need to know the specific copper price per pound? Make sure you know how your service centers will negotiate the aluminum price, for example. Platts, AMM HRC, scrap cap/collars—the indexes may all sound like alphabet soup, with no shortage of mechanisms buying organizations can use for contracting. Best practice dictates a slightly different strategy. Download this paper to learn more.
