Steel rebar futures rose to above CNY 3,900 in September, rebounding from the one-month low of 3,800 from earlier in the month as investors continued to weigh on a drop in output against concerns of lower demand for industrial and construction inputs. Record-setting heatwaves in top consumer China led to thin power rationing among factories, including blast furnaces, and drove steel output to contract sharply. In Europe, soaring energy prices and low demand caused manufacturers and welders to shut down factories across multiple countries to trigger an existential crisis. Still, prices remain strongly pressured by low demand. The NBS manufacturing PMI contracted for a second consecutive month in August, while the broader Caixin gauge marked an unexpected contraction. On top of that, new Covid outbreaks in Guangzhou and Shenzhen led governments to enforce lockdowns for millions, adding to concerns of lower economic activity.

Historically, Steel reached an all time high of 6198 in May of 2021. Steel - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on September of 2022.
