On November 23, Chinese PTA futures contracts maintained a soaring momentum. Main contract '1001' opened 90 points higher at 8,004 Yuan per ton, and in the process broke the psychological barrier of 8,000 in the morning.

Early morning trades ranged between 8,020-8,040 Yuan per ton. The momentum strengthened in the afternoon and touched 8,200 Yuan per ton towards closing time, but finally closed at 8,144 Yuan per ton, 230 points higher than the closing price of the previous day.

In PTA spot market, East China market was steady, sellers were quoting at 7,650 Yuan per ton, while counteroffers from downstream sector were at about 7,600-7,650 Yuan per ton, but sellers were reluctant at low levels, due to which market transactions were light.
