SMM5 March 18: boosted by the news of production restrictions on environmental protection in Tangshan, the superimposed market is expected to be better for this week's two sessions, and prices are now resonant in the threaded period. The national average spot price of thread rose 78.7 yuan / ton compared with last Friday, and even reached 100 million yuan / ton in South China. The acceptance of the terminal for the high price is OK, and the overall procurement rhythm is relatively stable. And at the same time, the market sentiment has obviously improved compared with the previous period, optimistic bullish sentiment occupies the mainstream, the phenomenon of traders coming out to replenish the stock is more common, the market is hot at low prices, and some merchants in some parts of eastern China, such as Nanjing market, even stop ordering and sealing the warehouse in the afternoon. From a current point of view, although under the understanding of SMM, the impact of production restrictions in Tangshan on the emotional side of the spot market is greater than reality, the spot market, which is still enthusiastically traded after the surge, has undoubtedly released a good signal that terminal demand can be expected. Spot prices have not stopped, and the "unilateral" market that the market has been waiting for a long time has unwittingly begun.
