EUROPE REBAR: Prices narrow upward, new increases to come soon

The domestic rebar market in the EU has been largely quiet in the past week because of continuing holidays, although some producers have already declared higher prices for January amid bullishness in raw materials and persistent shortages, sources told Fastmarkets on Wednesday January 6.
