varieties of metal for the November contracts increased. For foreign

buyers (for new price list of the company) corrosion-resistant metal will be

be shipped at a price increased from the October prices at US $ 50

per ton. For clients the change in the cost will be less

tangible: a ton of stainless steel from YUSCO for them will rise in price only 34 USD.

prices approved yet for the past month. In particular, hot rolled

stainless steel (series 304) from the warehouses of this company from the first day will be

be shipped at a cost of 3.5 million won per ton, and cold rolled steel at a price of 3.77

million KRW. A ton of G/K metal 430 series from this manufacturer will be
