ASX Sharemarket News

In ASX sharemarket news, iron ore businesses could come under pressure this morning with Chinese steelmakers suggesting that iron ore prices are too high. This means a business like Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG) could suffer if the iron ore price does indeed fall.

Chinese steel mills have complained to the Chinese government that the iron ore market is being manipulated by futures traders and it’s causing their profit margin to fall, according to the Australian Financial Review.

Whilst there has been a steep rise in the iron ore prices, the steelmakers aren’t getting the same higher price for their steel.
