PSF market displays small volatility
Aug '10
In the last few days, the Chinese domestic polyester staple fiber market showed a small volatility and prices stayed steady, but at the same time the market trade tried to focus on lower price.

Currently, operational rate of polyester staple fiber industry has declined, due to electric cuts enforced in Zhejiang province. However, business inventories are in the normal range, which can basically last 10 days.

PTA spot market was more cautious, market quotations for domestic goods were 7050-7100 Yuan / ton and talk level for overseas supply was $855 / ton.

MEG market was fair, mainstream offers for domestic goods were 5950 Yuan/ ton, while offers for overseas supply were $710 / ton.
