According to a recent market, the domestic steel market seems to have stabilized obvious signs of stabilization, the futures market has significantly improved, and the main reason is the estimated manufacturing PMI rebounded slightly, since the market bottomed steel plate two days phenomenon particularly evident. But even so, the downstream demand procurement still showed no obvious change, supply and demand pressures did not alleviate the Steel City, Steel City twist condition is not strong, so businesses are not optimistic attitude. |
Steel market has been the downstream demand is flat light, season so, not to mention soon to enter the off-season. So, steel prices have been weaker, until recent date steel higher price very obvious mainstream city, the surrounding cities to follow suit to pull up, the market volume have rebounded, but this is only short-term stimulus act, end demand does not appear substantially upgraded .
In addition there was no substantial change for the better demand than the supply pressure, the Steel City is also no signs of improvement. Steel production enthusiasm is still high, from mid-May crude steel production statistics, the national average daily production of 2,185,400 tons of crude steel, the chain fell 0.35 percent in early May, but still living in historic times high. The May PMI index also showed iron steel industry production index for the month was 49.0 percent, up 4.1 percentage points rise. New orders index rebounded, which makes steel production activities are very active.
In addition, there is a very important factor, that is, raw materials market continued to decline. It is understood that this year, the iron ore market has been in a downward trend, steel procurement initiative suffered a heavy blow, there are also many mills intent to purchase select the sidelines, a further blow to market confidence. Platts index, the S & P futures rose 0.75 yesterday, is now 62% of Australian fine exponent $ 116.75 / ton. Tender price surge in imported ore mines significantly boost market confidence, so long since considered the iron ore market finally has a slight color, the market is bullish atmosphere is also strong, but now the price is still at a relatively low level, while the cost respects with the trend of steel prices have great relevance, raw material prices go up, which seriously hampered the cost steel prices upward, so as long as the market is still so raw materials decline, and that business confidence in the latter part of the Steel City will be significantly inadequate.
