The macro atmosphere has warmed up, and the heat demand for superimposed steel is not reduced. Steel period shock upward, spot trend to follow, but the range is smaller.

On the demand side, according to the SMM survey, the actual resumption rate of the project under construction at the terminal site has reached 93.2%. Most businesses show that the release of terminal demand is smooth, shipping status preference; pipe factory, heavy truck, steel structure and other industries demand continues to release. The demand of thread hot coil is good. On the supply side, the planned output of snail rolls increased month-on-month in May, and the pressure on follow-up supply is expected to increase.

Due to the decline or narrowing of heat coil production, the pressure of supply in the north is on the high side. Coupled with the concentrated release of demand this week, it is expected that there may be convergence next week, the disk may have a callback risk, while the thread spot price in the short term although there is a pullback risk, but the space below is limited. Due to the near future, the library will continue to perform well in terminal demand to support the price.
