10/28/15 Scrap Price Update: Copper Stable, For Now?

Scrap Price updates for October 2015.Hey iScrappers!

We had a great weekend with dozens of people posting prices that they sold their scrap metals for, make sure you do the same at www.iScrapApp.com today….and you can also see many peoples prices on other materials that they have sold which will only help you out.

Copper Has Remained Stable, For Now?

Copper has not changed much in the last week with prices staying at consistent levels. Many people are worried about the prices of copper coming up to the winter time because many believe that they could follow the steel pricing…so we still suggest cashing in your copper now as the prices are still at a great level.

Steel Down For The Count

Steel prices are still very low and are not expected to increase anytime soon. The markets overseas have hurt the global demand and we are going to continue to see the prices being much lower for the foreseeable future and do not advise “hoarding,” the metals as you may be waiting for a long long time.

Other Metals Have Hurt The Market

Other markets like Nickel (one of the main alloys in stainless steel) has been much weaker as well lately with the overall market really hurting along with other metals.

Any other questions that you have please let us know and we will get all of the information over to you as quick as we can gather it….until next week, scrap ya later!
