CRU's Metallics Market Outlook prices update, published 16th September 2016, reports mixed results in September and a limited impact from sharply higher coal prices. CRU Senior Consultant Chris Asgill writes, "Although variable ironmaking costs are set to rise and peak in November following the significant lift in coking coal prices, we do not believe that steelmakers will be willing to accept sharply higher metallics prices."
