< 4 > suggestions for current operation.
1. Spot: same as yesterday.
Regional differences determine operational differences. That is to say, the decline falls in the area of the author's forward-looking range of 300 + 30, and gradually enters the stage where the input is greater than the replenishment of inventory. In the area with less decline, if the inventory pressure is large, the inventory will continue to drop, and the rolling operation of the non-pressure will be dominant.
RB1910 contract: the interval is mainly empty near the upper edge value.
HC1910 contract: the interval is dominated by cloth near the lower value.
Empty RB1910 contract multi-HC1910 contract arbitrage holding.
Iron ore L1909 contract: between 713 and 760 low, high altitude operation is appropriate.
Coke J1909 contract: low and high altitude operation in the range of 2180 to 2260.
Coking coal JM1909 contract: the implementation of the author's proposal to leave the market at a low level, the principle of wait-and-see, tasteless food.
< 5 > Heart language and information.
1. Sunrise interpretation of inventory data (see SMM Limited Network for details). On Friday, the decline of major varieties converged sharply to 140000 tons, just one step from the inflection point; the RB social warehouse fell by 170000 tons, the factory warehouse increased by 70, 000 tons, and the output looked back to minus 0.33 tons; the HC social reservoir increased by 30, 000 tons, and the factory warehouse increased by 20, 000 tons. The above data show that: high demand is not in, convergence and supply side temperature and expansion further verification, the overall interpretation of cautious pessimism; HC inventory inflection point: many looking for him thousands of degrees, suddenly look back, inflection point Iraq is in, dim lights. It came as expected. The inflection point of RB follows suit, with a good chance of landing next week.
2. Delivered by the Ministry of Commerce.
Whether progress can be made in the Sino-US trade negotiations depends to a large extent on the attitude and sincerity of the US side.
3. The decline in local areas is close to the range of 300 + 30 in the author's forward-looking forecast. Such as East China Shanghai region: operation recommendations, smooth operation is appropriate, do not stop falling; inventory without pressure gradually into the larger than replenishment inventory stage. In other areas, wait for inventory opportunities to be replenished.
4. Demon coke.
Coke: Shanxi Province environmental protection production limit documents are still hanging and not falling. Although some coke enterprises opened the fourth round of 100 yuan / ton, the steel enterprises are not surprised. Short-term supply is still high, the author predicts that the fourth round of price rise in July will be able to fall to the ground. It is appropriate to intervene gradually in the right amount of coke.
5. Iron ore: high demand, high discount, supply-side substantial convergence logic is still there, although the trend of the author remains the same, but in June with the end of the large probability weakened, did not look back, all the way to run difficult to continue is also a high probability event. Therefore, the trading ability is strong, every high air test is a good option; no trading ability, slow to wait for more opportunities after the switch. Don't worry about gain or loss.
6. Phase steel RB is still interpretation of iron ore, coke boost cost on the price support of the false proposition, the current conditional steel enterprises do their best to aim at RB capacity expansion. Of course, for products with long and only long processes, the proposition of strong cost support is valid. Therefore, the author continues to maintain the original judgment: if the output of arc furnace does not look back, any reverse pumping is not sustainable; only blame RB has "second mother" electric arc furnace.
7. The high price of steel before and after the low price in June is a high probability event. At that time, see the logic deduction of the author's comments this week.
The trend analysis and viewpoint remain unchanged. See the weekly review for details (25 May).
