Your question: chief sources of markets for recycled metals can be answered in several ways. Your local large junk or scrap yard can answer your question if they will. You can also keep up to date on prices via Recycling Times and on markets via the Wall Street Journal.

Three specific sources of dedicated metals market information are:

Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, Inc, Washington, DC, especially their annual FACTS yearbook.
The Steel Can Recycling Institute of Pittsburgh, PA.
The EIU World Commodity Outlook by The Economist Intelligence Unit of the Economist magazine (UK) sells that information at a very steep price, and as such, you can usually expect this to be the best international source of international present and future information).
