SteelMint: Rourkela sponge iron index falls INR 450/t on limited trades  - 31 May

SteelMint's daily sponge iron, CDRI, index is assessed at INR 32,200/tonne (t) (- INR 450) exw Rourkela on 31 May'22.

About 1,005 t of transactions in CDRI were recorded by SteelMint today as against 5,100 t on 30 May.

The index dropped further following a price correction in the northern region. A significant decline in steel prices in Punjab turned market sentiments sluggish, resulting in limited enquiries and a fall in offers in today's trade.

Thus, spot trades and prices of sponge iron moved down sharply amid low buying interest.
