Increase of Steel & Wheat Prices

July 31, 2009 at 19:12 by Vladimir Vyun

Steel prices in the U.S. rose for the first time this year today. The decline of steel consumption reached a bottom for the current business cycle and should begin to restore gradually as distributors began restocking their severely depleted inventories. U.S. steel rose $1.12 (3 percent) to $38.61 yesterday in NYSE.

Dollar’s slide causes wheat gain today. Wheat prices increase as speculation that dollar decline will continue leads to expectations for increase in the U.S. grain export. But there is anxiety that if dollar would rebound exports can fall back. September futures for wheat gained $0.0525 (1 percent) to $5.215 per bushel by 10:41 on CBoT.
