SteelMint: Raipur billet index falls even as trades improve on lower offers - 17 May

SteelMint's daily steel billet index was assessed at INR 51,000/tonne (t) (-INR 350) exw Raipur on 17 May'22.

About 7,875 t of transactions in billets were recorded by SteelMint today as against 1,400 t on 16 May.

The index fell further, although spot trades improved on lower offers following a rebound in steel prices in north India during afternoon trading.

With improved demand, selling pressure lessened for a couple of major billet producers in the central region. Hence, there are slim chances of a rigorous drop in offers in the coming time, sources informed SteelMint.
