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.

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