The maximum amplitude in the period is 17.09%

 

2、 Market analysis

 

On July 3, PVC market stopped falling and turned to rise. Due to the sharp rise of futures and the strength of the market, PVC spot market followed closely. This week, the PVC market is weak, futures shocks, the spot market is also in a state of callback. At this stage, it is the traditional off-season, some downstream factories are operating with reduced load, limited receiving capacity, and just in demand procurement is given priority to, and the consignors are offering profits to ship goods. The PVC market is stagnant. However, on July 2, the sharp rise of futures broke the deadlock, the mainstream prices in different regions rose to varying degrees, the focus shifted upward, and the enterprises’ shipment was fair. Under the mentality of buying up but not buying down, the enthusiasm of market participants increased. At present, the social inventory continues to be de stocked, some enterprises are still in the state of maintenance, the supply side still has some favorable support, the enterprise shipment is normal, the manufacturer’s confidence in supporting prices has been enhanced, and the market trading atmosphere has improved. On the whole, the fundamentals have not changed much, and the relationship between supply and demand is relatively stable.

 

On the spot, according to the data monitoring of the business agency, as of July 3, the mainstream domestic PVC quotation range was around 6100-6350 yuan / ton. At present, the mainstream price of pvc5 type tourmaline in Changzhou is around 6200-6260 yuan / ton, that in Hangzhou is 6300-6380 yuan / ton, and that in Guangzhou is around 6400-6450 yuan / ton, which can be negotiated.

In terms of supply, the operating rate of production enterprises this week was more than 70%. Most of the maintenance enterprises have recovered and their output has increased to a certain extent. After July, the number of maintenance enterprises decreased. Recently, some enterprises planned to repair and repair, such as Xinjiang Zhongtai, Zhonggu mining, Zhongyan Jilantai, Inner Mongolia Yili, etc., have maintenance plans. Some enterprises’ maintenance plans have been postponed to August. Social inventory continues to decline, but the speed slows down From the point of view, the supply tends to rise in a stable way, but it is gradually weakening.

In terms of demand, at present, the terminal operating rate is at a slightly higher level in the year, and the manufacturing market is still recovering. At present, it is in the off-season, and there is more precipitation in the plum rain season. The real estate industry is affected to a certain extent. However, the start-up of enterprises such as pipes and profiles is still at a high level, and other enterprises are at a medium and low level, and exports continue to be sluggish.

The price of blue carbon in the upstream market is low consolidation, and the cost support is insufficient, which has a negative impact on the price of calcium carbide. But the downstream PVC price high consolidation, the rise is weak, downstream customer demand for calcium carbide weakened. In the near future, the factory price of calcium carbide in Northwest China may fluctuate slightly: the manufacturer’s quotation is about 2500 yuan / ton, and the calcium carbide in the future market will drop slightly.

 

3、 Future forecast

 

According to the PVC analysts of the business agency, at present, the overall inventory of PVC continues to be removed, the maintenance enterprises are reduced, and there are still some advantages. The demand side is in the traditional off-season, while the support is still in place, and the trading atmosphere is getting better. It is expected that the trend of PVC in the short term will be more volatile, with the possibility of continued rise, but the space is limited.

The raw material pure benzene market rose to fall in June. In the first week, the price of domestic pure benzene rose slightly. Crude oil and external disk have strong support for pure benzene. In the second week, Sinopec adjusted the price of pure benzene by 200 yuan / ton, narrowing the price difference between internal and external markets, and strengthening the support at the bottom of the market. In the second half of the month, the price of raw material pure benzene showed a downward trend. The port inventory is high, the speed of delivery is slow, and the inventory pressure is difficult to release. Shandong refining enterprises inventory increase, driving prices continue to fall.

 

In June, the trend of downstream PA6 changed from strong to weak. In the first half of the month, the domestic market of PA6 was relatively strong, and the spot price of each brand increased to a certain extent. The upstream caprolactam inventory is low and the supply is still tight, which strongly supports the cost side of PA6. The demand of downstream slicing plant is general, and the purchase strategy of just need is mainly. The performance of PA6 in the second half of the month was average, and the business offer was deadlocked, and the shipment situation declined. The domestic operating rate is fair. Although the increase of overseas plasticizer consumption demand is good for domestic enterprises to remove inventory, the recent follow-up of orders from downstream factories is slow, and the reaction to high price goods is general, and the stock preparation is mainly on bargain hunting.

 

3、 Future forecast

 

Caprolactam analysts believe that the raw material prices continue to rise in early June, caprolactam supply is tight. The downstream demand for caprolactam increased. In the later stage, raw materials and terminal markets fell together, the cost support weakened, and the downstream demand was weak, which led to the poor market of caprolactam. It is expected that caprolactam market will consolidate in the future, and the market may go down again.

The PE spot market price rose step by step in late June

According to the data monitoring of business agency, the overall trend of domestic PE spot market showed a steady upward trend in the second half of June (June 15-29), among which LDPE rose the most, with the increase of 3.58% in the second half of June. At present, although it is in the traditional off-season of demand, due to the large number of maintenance of petrochemical units, the market supply is greatly reduced, which brings some support to some areas.

Thiourea

Average price range of regional varieties and specifications on June 15 to June 29

East China LLDPE 7042 6766.67 yuan / ton 6933.33 yuan / ton + 2.46%

East China LDPE 2426h 8025.00 yuan / ton 8312.50 yuan / ton + 3.58%

In East China, HDPE 5000S 7616.67 yuan / ton: 7783.33 yuan / ton + 2.19%

In late June, the prices of the three varieties in the PE spot market were mainly rising. Most petrochemical enterprises have raised their ex factory prices to boost the market mentality. From June 15 to 17, international crude oil rose for three consecutive days, which also brought benefits to the market. At present, it is in the centralized maintenance stage of petrochemical enterprises, and the market supply has decreased, so the market price is relatively firm. However, due to the traditional off-season sales, the overall demand of downstream users is less, and more replenishment is required, so the market transaction atmosphere is general. Business mentality is good, more with the market, small push up. On June 22, plastic futures rose in shock, which benefited the spot market, and PE saw the rise again. Petrochemical enterprises raised the ex factory price for several consecutive days, with the increase range of 50-100 yuan / ton. After the Dragon Boat Festival, the petrochemical inventory has accumulated, which is difficult to consume in the short term. However, due to the high level of petrochemical plant maintenance, the impact on the market is not significant, and the price is still strong.

 

At present, the impact of social and public health events on the domestic market is limited. The downstream gradually returns to work and production. The operating rate is significantly higher than that in the previous period, and the market demand shows signs of warming. And currently in the maintenance peak season, the market supply is greatly reduced, and the supply is relatively tight, which brings benefits to the market. However, with the end of the maintenance season, the domestic market supply increased significantly, and the market supply and demand situation is not optimistic. It is expected that the future market will rise first and then fall.

Special 2020 makes natural rubber “different”

According to the data, the natural rubber commodity index on June 29 was 29.60, down 0.71 points compared with yesterday, 70.40% lower than 100.00 points (2011-09-01), and 8.50% higher than 27.28 points, the lowest point on April 2, 2020. (Note: period refers to 2011-09-01 to now)

 

Figure 2: natural rubber mainstream price trend in the first half of 2020

 

From the beginning of January to June of 2020, the overall market of natural rubber showed a downward trend and then a small upward trend. The price of natural rubber at the end of March and early April was a periodic bottom. In May, the Tianjiao Jedi rebounded and fluctuated upward. In June, the natural rubber continued the upward trend of last month and first rose to the near-term highest point. Subsequently, due to insufficient demand support, the price turned downward, and then there was a certain degree of shock rebound. According to the natural rubber (bid 1) data in East China monitored by the business agency, in June, the mainstream price of Baodao whole milk market was about 10120 yuan / ton on the 1st day and 10078 yuan / ton on the 30th day, up 0.42% so far this month. Among them, the price of 10370 yuan / ton on the 5th day was the highest point in recent two months, and 9980 yuan / ton on the 29th was the lowest price of this month, with the largest earthquake amplitude of 3.76%. Generally speaking, before the Dragon Boat Festival, the price of Baodao whole milk was 10370 yuan / ton, which was the highest in recent two months, The price of natural rubber fluctuated between 10100-10400 yuan / ton. On the first trading day after the Dragon Boat Festival, with the sharp drop of nearly 300 points in Shanghai rubber, the spot price of natural rubber was adjusted, and the mainstream price of domestic whole milk broke through 10000 yuan again. On the last trading day of this month, it rose slightly and returned to more than 10000 yuan.

 

So far this year, NR has highlighted several aspects of its “difference”:

 

First, due to the globalization of the epidemic situation since 2020, it is inevitable that the demand for natural rubber at home and abroad will be greatly reduced. Crude oil will rebound after a continuous drop. As a natural rubber that is easily affected by crude oil, with the downward process of crude oil, natural rubber experienced a breakthrough of 10000 yuan in the first half of the year, and then experienced a slow rebound for three months. So far, the market is weak and weak.

 

Second, at the same time, crude oil fell sharply, and butadiene went down sharply. As a result, the price of alternative rubber was low, and some demand of tire manufacturers turned to the market of substitute rubber. The already poor demand of Tianjiao was replaced by a part.

 

Third, the demand is not good, and the operating rate of tire factories will be affected. The data shows that the current operating rate of domestic tire factories is about 60-70%, which is the highest operating data so far this year. The statistics of automobile sales data have only rebounded since May, but only on a month on month basis, which is still an inevitable decline on a year-on-year basis.

 

Thiourea

Fourth, the year 2020 is different. It is doomed that the opening of new rubber will be delayed due to weather disasters and pest disasters. China’s traditional cutting season has come, but there is no wait for the domestic production to increase significantly. However, the production of Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries will not be listed until the end of this month. There is no doubt that the inventory of natural rubber will continue to increase, especially in Qingdao free trade zone Inventory of.

 

Fifthly, the difference of natural rubber in 2020 is also reflected in the regional differences in domestic supply. As early as mid May, the shortage of natural rubber in Yunnan, especially in Banna, has resulted in the continuous firmness of rubber prices. According to local traders, the delay in the listing of new rubber this year and the fact that some import indexes have not been released in previous years have resulted in the shortage of local supplies At the end of last month and in the middle of this month, many articles of our press had analyzed the regional differences in the domestic natural rubber market in detail. Up to the end of June and the beginning of July, this situation still existed, and the regional transmission of goods sources also appeared.

 

Sixth, the existence of trade friction. On June 12, the U.S. Department of Commerce released the preliminary findings of the fourth review on anti-dumping of passenger car and light truck tires against China. Two compulsory responding enterprises obtained 76.46% of the dumping duty rate for refusing to participate in the investigation, and seven enterprises received zero tax rate. On the 26th and 27th of last month, the Ministry of Commerce and industry of India issued a series of announcements to initiate anti-dumping investigations on China’s nitrile rubber and rubber additive px-13. Although trade frictions are not rare, this year’s difficult situation and the frequent occurrence of such incidents make the export situation even more severe.

 

To sum up, the natural rubber situation in 2020 is difficult. With regard to the future market, the analysis of the business agency believes that the recent focus is that Thailand’s new rubber has begun to be listed in large quantities, while the domestic natural rubber inventory is still high and facing a substantial increase. However, the downstream demand rebounds slowly, the contradiction between supply and demand is more prominent, and the price will be subject to certain pressure. Due to the low level of rubber every day, there is little room for decline; Yunnan, especially in Banna, is in short supply, which will form a certain support for prices, especially local prices. It is expected that the demand of new infrastructure will be boosted. The serious epidemic situation in foreign countries and the local rebound of domestic situation will inevitably cause emotional worries. Long and short will affect the market comprehensively. It is expected that the volatility trend of Tianjiao will continue in the future. We should guard against the impact of a large number of new rubber listed on the price.

The price of phosphoric acid continues to decrease

1、 Price trend

 

The market continued to decline in June. According to the large data list of business associations, the average price of domestic phosphoric acid on June 28 was 4866.67 yuan / ton, 1.68% lower than that on June 16, 6.41% lower than 5200 yuan / ton at the beginning of the month (1), and 5.8% higher than that of the same period last year.

 

2、 Market analysis

 

In June, the center of gravity of phosphoric acid continued to move downward. The sharp decline of phosphoric acid in this month is mainly due to the lower raw material yellow phosphorus and bad cost. With the rapid decline of yellow phosphorus, the price of thermal process phosphoric acid has dropped significantly, and the performance is relatively mild near the end of the month, and the trend tends to be stable; in terms of demand, the follow-up is insufficient, the export is still weak, and the phosphoric acid enterprises have certain difficulties in shipping. With the increase of controllable price space, phosphoric acid enterprises continue to reduce prices for sales. In recent years, the price of wet process phosphoric acid has not been greatly reduced, the manufacturers’ inventory is not high, and the shipment is still good.
