How Scrap Metals are Priced

The prices of metals in the US can be affected by a number of factors, including global supply and demand, the strength of the US economy, and geopolitical factors. When there is high demand for metals globally, prices tend to increase.

Similarly, when there is strong economic growth in the US, this also tends to drive up metal prices. However, geopolitical factors can also have a significant impact on metal prices. For example, if there is political unrest in a major producing country, this can lead to disruptions in the supply of metals, and prices may increase as a result.

Non-ferrous metals, such as aluminum prices, copper prices, brass prices, and stainless steel prices experience a daily change.
