ABSTRACT
The article reports about prevalent market trends in the U.S. metal trade. The bottom line of the steel industry is cut the production considerably or face imbalance of trade. As per the industry outlook, ample supply and soft demand is making stainless producers crave for market share over pricing. However, events bear close watching in 2003 and 2004. Industry trends for nonferrous metals seem better as consumption growth continues to improve. The other side of the market, production, still presents some problems. While there is remarkable restraint in copper production, some Codelco production is reportedly being stockpiled. The problem metals are aluminum and zinc, where production remains too strong.
