China’s CRC, HDG export prices steady ahead of Lunar New Year

Export prices for Chinese cold-rolled coil and hot-dipped galvanized coil were flat over the past week because many market participants were in the process of leaving for vacation ahead of the January 24-30 Lunar New Year holiday, sources told Fastmarkets.

“Trading activity is limited because most mills have stopped accepting new orders,” a trader in Hangzhou said.
