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.

Raw material procurement from downstream firms maintained a normal rhythm in an unhurried pattern of buying from hand to mouth. The release of monthly settlement price of polyester staple fiber also played a stabilizing role.

Prices of international crude oil futures rebounded modestly recently, but the price failed to strike the US $80 per barrel mark and stood at $77 per barrel.

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.
