SMM, Oct. 25: part of the metal silicon brand rose slightly this week, Huangpu Port oxygen 55 million silicon trading price rose to 10400-10500 yuan / ton, Tianjin Port oxygen 55 million silicon trading price in the vicinity of 11200 yuan / ton, up 100 yuan / ton from last Friday.
Sichuan production areas began to enter a flat period on Wednesday, with electricity prices rising 0.05-0.08 yuan per kilowatt-hour compared with the beginning of the month. Yunnan Dehong began to cut power within the week, and Nujiang adjusted its electricity price to the dry season next Friday. Low silicon prices, increased costs, insufficient power supply and other reasons led to the start of the shutdown process of silicon plants in the two provinces, and it is expected that the number of furnaces in the two provinces will be reduced to the level of the previous dry season by the middle of November.
Although supply side downsizing is an imminent high probability event, traders generally have ample inventories after a wave of hoarding after National Day. On the other hand, due to their own start restrictions and low prices of finished products, there are few plans to stock up for the dry season, mainly on demand. (SMM Yang Xiaoting)
