Because the actual number of valid orders does not change much, so under the condition of stable market price, because the supplier's expectation of the overall demand change for a period of time in the future is weak, there are also many suppliers competing for the effective orders in the current market. This also makes some manufacturers and shippers dare not raise prices easily, and it is rumored that some shippers in Lengshuijiang area have even begun to reduce prices. And the buyer is still in a wait-and-see state, the purchase is also basically just need to buy, coupled with the current price reduction of the supplier is not large, the downstream purchase mood has not yet been fully mobilized.
