To calculate an index number, divide the selected month’s price by
the starting (base) value. Then multiply by 100.
For example: Index number = ($720 / $500) x 100 = 144. To calculate
the month-on-month percentage change, divide this month’s value by
last month’s value. Then subtract 1 and multiply by 100. For

predictions are based on a wide experience of steel consumption
patterns. The econometric models we have constructed take into
account raw material costs, macro-economic factors, past price
trends and the dynamics of the market. However, steel prices can be
influenced by a number of other factors. These include currency
exchange rates, trade regulations including import safeguard
measures, anti-dumping actions and other government interference in
normal trade patterns. More than one third of all steel produced is
sold outside the country of manufacture. Accordingly, changes in
market conditions in one country can impact on pricing in other
parts of the world. Consequently, these forecasts should be used
only as a guide to future tendencies. MEPS (INTERNATIONAL) LTD
