Ferrous is iron containing metal. The easiest way to detect iron (scrap steel) is with a magnet. Anything the magnet sticks to is iron. Ferrous pricing is derived through contracts with steel mills that are based off supply and demand. Generally, iron pricing is monthly, but as with all commodities, prices are subject to change without notice.
