In terms of capital flows, the net inflow of funds from RB1910 today was 269 million yuan. I1909 net inflow of capital was 140 million yuan. Viewpoint: shock is weak. The 11th round of Sino-US economic and trade talks, which were widely watched by the market, ended on Saturday, but the two sides have yet to agree on trade frictions, following an increase in tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to the US from 10 per cent to 25 per cent on Friday. The US further threatened to start a 25 per cent tax on the remaining $325 billion of Chinese exports to the US, and announced the list today, with a significant rise in the VIX panic index. As a result, the financial markets are weak today. Cotton futures closed down the limit, RB1910 rose briefly on Friday, was blocked back down, today continued the downward trend of shock. SMM survey data show that in May, 31 mainstream building materials steel plants plan to increase their production of rebar by 235300 tons over the previous month, and the output of steel mills remains high, although non-heating season production restrictions are still in place in some areas this month. However, from the environmental protection supervision "looking back" special supervision and inspection, Hubei, Hunan, Shanxi and other seven provinces and cities still have a lot of rectification and reform is not in place; On the demand side, there have been signs of seasonal weakness, with the average daily trading volume of building materials falling by 2000 tons, or 1.2 percent, last week compared with the previous week. China's April car data released today also fell short of expectations, with car sales falling 12.1 per cent from January to April from a year earlier. Last week, the more strong coke prices also fell sharply today, there is also a certain crackdown on market confidence. It is expected that the concussion of short-term thread and hot coil is weak, but the trend of raw material is good, and it will still be stronger than that of mature wood.
