Yusco plans to rise price for November

All stainless steel mills experienced profit shrinks due to the dramatic nickel price fall since May this year.
Currently, nickel price stays stable at US$31,000/mt. In considering of high production cost, Taiwan’s Yieh United Steel Co. (Yusco) is very likely to raise price this week. The expectedly lifted range is between NT$5,000/ton to NT$8,000/ton. According to the average nickel price in October, the actual increase should be less.
But the demand is not strong enough, some domestic buyers think price of NT$5,000~8,000/ton is reasonable. According to the market feedback, a raise of NT$5,000/ton can be the most acceptable price adjusted level.
