/India PRwire/ - The rapidly fluctuating prices of steel globally and in India now have an objective observer and provider of information, both in dept and at-a-glance, with the launch by Steelguru.com of the www.steelprices-india.com as a portal.
The massive use and demand of steel in India and the role of Indian steel players in the global steel market has generated the need of such an information centric portal as planners and investors raked their brains over steel price trends and twists. Steel, a crucial and often a big ticket item, was always of concern. Steelguru, with the launch of the steelprices-india.com, expects to be of service and use for the planners, be it in real estate, auto-industries, manufacturing and a variety of other sectors.
Steel prices have been rather bullish for the past year or so impacting the users as well as buyers in a severe way leaving no benchmark for them to compare their transaction prices. In the present scenario where one needs to have nerves of steel to take considered decisions in this sector, www.steelguru.com, the world’s largest English based steel portal has come up with its very own www.steelprices.com as a solution. Steelprices-india.com is, therefore, providing domestic pricing information for steel products in each category at select location in India on a regular basis 5 days a week.
Mr Nishith Sharma of steelguru.com said that” considering the fact that India is one of the most important emerging markets for steel today and it totally lacks services of domestic pricing information, we decided to fill this void.” He added that “the positive feedback received during the testing phase has helped us fine tune the features and functions of the website to a great extent to suit the requirements of steel users and encouraged us to enlarge the product location mix to include more products and markets like China and Middle east.”
Steelprices-india.com has prices displayed on daily, weekly and monthly basis with search facilities to access old data from the archives. Graphical representation of trends and comparison of price movement is also available. A calculator to convert domestic prices into comparative CNF and vice versa is provided along with a converter for weight, length etc. One can also monitor currency exchange rates, metal prices, BDI for the day and can take help from glossary and advanced search functions as well. All these features are accessible only to a registered user who is provided with a login id and password.
