SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 14, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resource Exchange of America Corporation (OTCBB:RXAC), a Florida-based recycling company, is pleased to comment on the latest figures for global steel prices.

Following an uncertain summer, the market has seen increases as high as 12% in some areas, due mainly to cutbacks in China as producers attempt to meet year-end energy targets. Chinese mills currently account for around half the world's steel output.

"The market has been showing signs of strong growth for some time now and short-term indications point towards a healthy recovery for the steel industry," says Dana Pekas, CEO of REAC. "Production cuts in China have allowed the market to stabilize, at least in the short term, which is great news for the rest of the world."

Chinese markets remained the source of much speculation this week as one notably high profile purchase saw tanker Swift Resolute find a cash buyer willing to pay $460/LT LDT, far above the current scrap market value of $394/LT LDT.

 "Whether or not the market can sustain such anomalies is doubtful," adds Dana. "It is only a matter of time before prices correct themselves. However global demand for steel remains high, even as other competing markets are struggling. "
