On December 5, the US dollar fell continuously and tin price rose

On December 5, the mainstream quotation range of 1 # tin ingot in East China spot market was 193000-196000 yuan/ton, with an average price of 194500 yuan/ton, up 8000 yuan/ton from the previous trading day. The average price in the domestic market was 194610 yuan/ton, 4.23% higher than the previous trading day, and 34.2% lower than the same period last year.

The US dollar fell for three consecutive working days overnight, boosting the metal market mentality. Today, metals rose in the morning, and Shanghai Tin rose by more than 4%, driving the spot market to rise significantly by 8000-9000 yuan/ton. As of the end of the 5th day, the settlement price of the main contract of Shanghai Tin 2301 was 190360 yuan/ton, up 3.94%.

 

Macroscopically, the domestic policy optimization in recent two days has boosted the market mentality. Last weekend, the US dollar fell continuously and the metal market generally rose. Fundamentals have not changed much in recent years, which still shows loose supply and weak demand. Although the downstream semiconductor industry is expected to improve in the near future, the market mentality is slightly boosted. However, the downstream procurement intention is still on demand, and the actual demand has not changed much. The business agency expects that the tin price in the future will be mainly weak in the long run, but will still be affected by the macro in the short run, maintaining a wide range of shocks.

MTBE market fell first and then rose

This week, the domestic MTBE market price fell first and then rose, with an overall decline. Some enterprises adjusted their ex factory quotation for many times, at about 100-300 yuan/ton. At the beginning of the week, crude oil continued to fall deeply. In addition, the gasoline market also declined step by step. The market was pessimistic, and downstream businesses had low purchasing intentions. As the price gradually fell to a low level, and the crude oil rebounded before the weekend, the downstream replenished on bargain, and the market sales gradually improved, some regions took the opportunity to slightly increase, but the overall situation was still lower than last week.

According to the monitoring data of the business community, the MTBE price remained at 7070 yuan/ton on November 25 and 6850 yuan/ton on December 2. The price fell by 3.11% during the cycle, 0.15% month on month and 8.04% year on year.

 

In terms of upstream products and methanol, the business community monitored that the price of domestic methanol in East China ports was weak and lower, which was 2811 yuan/ton at the beginning of the week, and 2670 yuan/ton as of 10:00 a.m. on December 2, with a 5.04% drop in the price during the cycle. At present, the domestic methanol market is mainly consolidated.

Asia./FOB Singapore./918.49-920.49 USD/ton./16.5 USD/ton

Europe./FOB ARA./1068.49-1068.99 USD/ton./9 USD/ton

US./FOB Gulf./1018.84-1019.20 US dollars/ton./11.54 US dollars/ton

 

As the price fell to a low level, the willingness of the downstream to replenish on bargain hunting increased, and the desire of the merchants to be bullish grew. MTBE analysts from the business agency believe that the domestic MTBE market may still rise in the short term.

Chitosan oligosaccharide

According to the data of the business community, the average price of domestic aluminum ingots in the East China market on November 30 was 18983.33 yuan/ton, down 1.5% from 19273.33 yuan/ton on November 18. However, according to the monthly data, the current price is 5.13% higher than the price at the beginning of the month.

 

In the long term, the average price of aluminum ingot market is 17450 yuan/ton, up 8.79% from the recent recovery (July 14, 2022).

 

Macro positive

 

1. The National Bureau of Statistics released data and preliminarily calculated that the gross domestic product in the first three quarters was 87026.9 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 3.0% at constant prices, 0.5 percentage points faster than that in the first half of the year. On a month on month basis, GDP grew by 3.9% in the third quarter.

 

2. Terminal demand. According to the data of the Passenger Association, China’s retail sales of generalized passenger cars in October increased by 7.2% year on year. In October, the retail sales of new energy passenger cars reached 556000 units, a year-on-year increase of 75.2% and a month on month decrease of 9.0%. From January to October, a trend was formed. The real estate policy has many advantages. The real estate policy has good news.

 

Fundamentals Overview

 

On the supply side, due to environmental protection, cost and other problems in the heating season in the north, the output of about 100000 tons has been reduced slightly, but Sichuan, Guangxi and other real estates can continue to repair. At present, Sichuan has recovered about 30%, and the operating capacity is 360000 tons. Therefore, the domestic electrolytic aluminum supply in November was generally stable, with a small increase. At present, the domestic electrolytic operation capacity has increased by about 270,000 tons to 40.61 million tons compared with the beginning of November. The domestic electrolytic aluminum output in November (30 days) is about 3.337 million tons, up 8.8% year on year.

 

Gamma-PGA (gamma polyglutamic acid)

In terms of inventory: according to the statistics of inventory in mainstream areas, it is still at the level of more than 500,000 tons. On November 28, 2022, the social inventory of domestic electrolytic aluminum will be 516000 tons, 2000 tons less than that of last Thursday, 97000 tons less than that of last Thursday, 498000 tons less than that of the same period last year.

 

In terms of demand, the aluminum price fell at the end of the month, mainly due to soft demand. According to statistics, the operating rate of domestic leading downstream aluminum processing enterprises fell 0.8 percentage points month on month to 66.3%.

 

On the overseas side, the overseas electrolytic aluminum production capacity has reduced by about 2 million tons due to the energy crisis or maintenance strike. However, within the month, LME decided not to take further measures against RUSAL, which eased supply concerns.

 

Future market forecast

 

On the one hand, the aluminum price in November was boosted by the positive release of real estate policies in the terminal market, on the other hand, the pace of interest rate increase in the United States slowed down, the US dollar index fell back to a high level, and the nonferrous metal sector recovered as a whole. The overall aluminum price is rising and warming up. At present, low inventory has a certain support for aluminum price, but the terminal is gradually entering the low consumption season. The operating rate of domestic aluminum downstream processing leading enterprises may gradually decline, and the inventory may increase. In the short term, supply and demand are relatively stable, and the probability of sideways trading is expected to increase.

Gamma-PGA (gamma polyglutamic acid)

The output of plastic products decreased year on year

 

According to the data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, the output of plastic products in October was 6.685 million tons, down 3.7% year on year. The output of plastic products declined, the demand for plasticizers decreased, and the downward pressure on plasticizers increased.

 

Future market expectation

 

According to the DOP data analysts of the business agency, in terms of cost, the prices of raw materials, such as isooctanol and phthalic anhydride, fell sharply in November, and the cost of DOP fell; On the demand side, the output of plastic products declined, the demand for plasticizers remained weak, and on the supply side, the plasticizer manufacturers started to work steadily. In general, the demand for DOP cost reduction is weak, and it is expected that the future DOP price will be adjusted due to weak shocks.

Nickel price fell on November 28

1、 Trend analysis

 

According to the nickel price monitoring of the business community, on the 28th, the average price of nickel in the spot market was 197016.67 yuan/ton, down 3.22% from the previous trading day and up 28.76% year on year.

 

Oil prices were subdued and weakened, with Rennie closing down 2.36% the following week. In November, the initial value of the US PMI was lower than expected, and the domestic market ushered in the reduction of the reserve ratio. Under the interweaving of long and short, it was difficult for the nickel price to go out of the trend market in the future. With the continuous accumulation of nickel stocks and the fact that the epidemic situation has curbed demand, businesses are afraid of high prices and rarely make deals. In terms of nickel ore, the supply and demand remain weak, but the willingness to support the price of the mine is strong, which is expected to be unsustainable due to the weak fundamentals. In terms of downstream stainless steel, the scale of production reduction of steel mills may be expanded in the future, which will form a certain support for the price of stainless steel. However, the downstream transactions are not improved, making it difficult for stainless steel to continue to make breakthroughs upward. Nickel price tends to be weak due to short-term shocks.

Weak demand dragged down PTA price in November

According to the monitoring of the business community, the domestic PTA market showed a trend of first rising and then falling in November. As of November 27, the average price of the domestic PTA spot market was 5550 yuan/ton, down 2.42% from the beginning of the month. In the first ten days, thanks to the good supply of crude oil and its own, the shock became stronger. However, since the middle of the year, the new devices are about to be launched, the cost is weakening, and the demand is poor. Under the superposition of many bad news, the PTA price shows a downward trend.

 

Gamma-PGA (gamma polyglutamic acid)

On the supply side, the production of new PTA devices was delayed in the first ten days of November, and the load of large plants was reduced, which boosted the upward price shock of PTA. However, with the improvement of processing costs, the production intention of PTA plants has risen, and most domestic devices have completed annual maintenance. The current industry operating rate remains above 74%. In addition, PTA’s new capacity is about to be tested, and the accumulated warehouse is expected to rise.

 

After the middle of November, the international crude oil price also fell significantly. As of the 23rd, the settlement price of the main contract of the U.S. WTI crude oil futures was 77.94 dollars/barrel, and the settlement price of the main contract of Brent crude oil futures was 85.41 dollars/barrel. The Federal Reserve hinted that the interest rate increase was far from over. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies (OPEC+) again lowered the growth expectation of global crude oil demand in 2022. On the whole, crude oil prices declined.

 

Chitosan oligosaccharide

The order of textile terminal enterprises is sluggish, and the drag on the demand side may be more obvious. After the end of the traditional peak season of “Jin Jiu Yin Shi”, the downstream polyester plants are more willing to ease the inventory pressure through the way of profit giving promotion and exchange of price for quantity. However, because the terminal textile enterprises are not willing to take the goods and mainly purchase for rigid demand, the effect of inventory reduction is not good, and the polyester plants are forced to choose to reduce the burden, reducing the demand for PTA.

 

Analysts from the business community believe that PTA cost support is somewhat loose at present, and terminal demand is weak. Downstream polyester is facing double pressures of high inventory and low profits, so there is a weakening expectation on the cost side and the demand side. However, under the influence of the current tight PTA spot liquidity and poor logistics, the downward trend of PTA will be restrained. On the whole, PTA prices in December were still volatile and weak.

Supply increase, styrene market price declines

The styrene market fell on November 23. Shandong’s styrene production was 8066.67 yuan/ton, down 0.92% from the previous trading day and 5.93% year on year. Recently, the spot price of styrene has declined due to shocks. The US dollar price of styrene in Asia fell, while the price of pure benzene fluctuated at a low level, and the cost support was weak. At present, the supply of styrene is increasing, and the downstream is purchasing on demand. The market transaction is not good, and the pressure on styrene shipment is great, so the market is falling. The spot stock of styrene is abundant, and the short-term styrene market is expected to fall mainly.

The price of locally refined naphtha declined slightly this week (11.14-11.20)

1、 Price data

 

Chitosan oligosaccharide

As of November 20, the average ex factory price of domestic local refining hydrogenated naphtha mainstream was 8144.75 yuan/ton, down 0.51% from 8186.33 yuan/ton on November 14. The actual transaction price of local refining hydrogenated naphtha was about 80000-8200 yuan/ton.

 

As of November 20, the average ex factory price of domestic straight run naphtha mainstream was 7759.00 yuan/ton, down 1.02% from 7838.67 yuan/ton on November 14. The actual transaction price of local straight run naphtha was about 7700-7900 yuan/ton.

 

On November 20, the naphtha commodity index was 100.52, unchanged from yesterday, 17.36% lower than the highest point of 121.64 (2022-03-10) in the cycle, and 137.97% higher than the lowest point of 42.24 on July 19, 2016. (Note: the cycle refers to the period from September 1, 2012 to now)

 

2、 Analysis of influencing factors

 

The price of refined naphtha fell this week, and the terminal ethylene and reforming were lack of obvious advantages. The purchase was based on demand, the refinery was active in shipping, and the merchants were mainly wait-and-see. The transaction was cautious.

 

Gamma-PGA (gamma polyglutamic acid)

Upstream: The international crude oil price fell in shock, and the Federal Reserve suggested that the interest rate increase was far from over, and it was not close to the end of monetary tightening. At present, the interest rate increase of the Federal Reserve has limited impact on inflation, which is not enough to reduce inflation. The Federal Reserve may need to take more tightening measures to curb inflation in the future, which will affect the decline of crude oil prices. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies (OPEC+) once again lowered the growth expectation of global crude oil demand in 2022. With the risk of global economic recession intensifying, the future slowdown of demand growth is a certainty, and fuel demand will also face pressure. The slowing demand of China, the largest oil importer, also caused widespread concern among investors, and the oil market fell sharply. In addition, the overall economy is weak, and the prospect of energy demand is still not optimistic. The economic weakness depresses oil prices.

 

Downstream: According to the monitoring of the business community, the price of toluene rose first and then fell this week. On November 11, the price was 7410 yuan/ton, and on November 18, the price was 7440 yuan/ton, up 0.4%. The price of mixed xylene rose slightly this week. On November 11, the price was 8040 yuan/ton, and on November 18, the price was 8100 yuan/ton, 0.75% higher than that of last week. In terms of PX market, the price trend of this week was temporarily stable. As of the weekend, the domestic ex factory price of paraxylene was 8600 yuan/ton, which was unchanged from the price of 8600 yuan/ton at the beginning of the week.

 

3、 Future market forecast

 

The energy analysts of the business agency believe that the international crude oil price fell in shock this week, and the cost support of the naphtha market is limited; The terminal ethylene and reforming are lack of obvious advantages, and the procurement is mainly based on demand. The merchants have a strong wait-and-see mood and are cautious in the transaction. It is expected that the refining of naphtha in the near future will fluctuate downward.
