February has seen a 7% increase in this index for the month and a 24% increase from the same time last year. Although there is still cautious beliefs that a drop is imminent prices are showing otherwise. The Metals Index is still predicting a drop sometime early in the year and demand for Iron Ore is said to be lower from China, so a lower scrap price may still occur soon.
