Steel price spreads - flat and long products

We now show historic steel prices spreads on our website.

If you are thinking of investing in a billet mill or in rebar production, our scrap-billet or billet-rebar price-spread charts may interest you.
If you are thinking of investing in flat product production, our slab-hot rolled coil and hot rolled–cold rolled coil price spreads may be of interest.

Access to the price spread graphs is free, and all steel charts are updated monthly. Visit

With our compliments…
