Editorial note -
Polyester value chain looked firm and confident. Today, PET feedstock like PX, ethylene and MEG broke important psychological levels, hence speculators kept close eye on them. News of antidumping duty removal on Chinese PSF, by European Union, created positive sentiment in the market.
