Futures fell sharply in the morning, polyester products moved lower, price trade sentiment in PTA spot was obviously insufficient, due to which, domestic offers fell back to 7,900-7,950 Yuan per ton, while buyer's intention was close to 7,800 Yuan per ton.

Overseas offers fell to US $955-960 per ton, but buyer's counteroffers were scarce, and a few bids were sealed at $945-950 per ton. PTA futures rebounded in the afternoon, spot market stabilized, domestic offers gradually moved up to about 7,850-7,870 Yuan per ton.

Counteroffers of overseas buyers stood at around US $950 per ton, inquiries also increased, mainstream transactions were made between $950-955 per ton.

A major supplier in Taiwan planned to shut down its No. 3 PTA plant (with 700,000 tons of capacity) for maintenance in a few days. Another PTA plant has also shut down its device for maintenance since late November. They both plan to resume operations in mid-December.

Jinling Petrochemical also plans to overhaul its PX plant (600,000 tons) from December 4 and maintenance time is estimated for 45 days and restarting time is scheduled around mid-January 2010.
