Steel Price Analyzer is a flexible tool of analyzing and comparing up to four (4) price series that are included in the subscription, either as actual values or as an index.


The currency and units of the series chosen for comparison will change automatically to match the initial series to compare like with like.


The trend and percentage change values are a comparison of the latest price with the previous price, to give a quick view of the current market movement.
