On Monday, May 10, 2021, nickel had declined, as widely reported, on profit-taking, along with other base metals.

Turkey: European Commission (EC) should not extend Safeguard

Speakers told a Turkish Steel Exporters Union (ÇIB) webinar on May 6, 2021, that the European Commission (EC) should better not extend the existing safeguard tariffs on steel imports. This would only lead to a worsening of the shortage of steel and stainless steel. And make steel product prices even more expensive.

A speaker referred to the Section 232 tariffs in the United States, which have led to an extreme increase in steel prices. Currently, the U.S. is one of the countries with the highest steel prices in the world.
