Iron ore prices for Chinese imports declined for a fifth day to $119.10 a metric ton yesterday, the lowest since July 1, according to data from The Steel Index Ltd. Australia’s statistics bureau said today construction work done in the nation in the fourth quarter fell 1 percent, compared with economist forecasts for a 0.2 percent increase.
