Thread supply and demand is strong, the latest steel plant scheduling data show that production may rise and downstream demand in the rapid recovery, the continuous recovery of the daily trading volume of mainstream traders has restored market confidence. And the previous decline in scrap has recently stopped the decline and even began to rebound. As for iron ore, with the arrival of Australia and Pakistan in Hong Kong, there has also been a marked recovery, with the main contribution coming from Australia. Port inventories accumulated slightly after a continuous decline. However, the volume of port opening has fallen, mainly due to the large inventory of steel mills in Shandong, and the general demand for replenishing warehouses.

Crude oil rose 0.58% in the previous period. The world's largest oil producer has reached a historic agreement. After a week of bilateral teleconference and a videoconference between the OPEC+ Alliance and G20 ministers, an agreement was finally reached to deal with the impact of the outbreak on oil demand. While the deal is unprecedented, it is not enough to boost oil prices. The cuts in supply cannot offset the massive oil glut caused by the epidemic. Us oil tumbled 20 per cent last week, and Brent crude futures fell more than 7 per cent.
