- Flats: The Vietnamese market for imported hot rolled coil continues to be quiet on weak demand. Chinese mill offers continue to falter. SAE 1006 HRC from a popular Chinese mill is being offered at $770/t cfr Vietnam from $780/t cfr the week before, Vietnamese trading sources report.
- Longs: East Asian rebar and wire rod import markets continue to be bearish. Prices were heard lower last week on sluggish demand.
- Semis: Philippine billet buyers are shrugging off import offers. Buying interest is thin because of weak demand and high inventories.
