Iron ore prices in China closed lower but are still trading at a weekly high as traders balance weak demand and hopes of better future consumption. China’s real estate crisis has reduced demand for steel products, which are heavily used in construction. Benchmark iron ore for May (SZZFK4) on the Singapore Exchange fell 1.9% to US$99.65 per ton.

Asian markets closed lower this Wednesday, following the behavior of Wall Street, which yesterday had its worst daily performance in weeks amid concerns about the trajectory of basic interest rates in the US.
