On September 25th, according to SMM research, today's stainless steel contract price continued to be weak and fell below 15100 points, affecting the sentiment of the spot market. Most agent opening prices this week have decreased by about 100 yuan/ton compared to last week. Currently, there is a large accumulation of spot resources, and in the last week before the National Day at the end of the month, there is a lot of room for negotiation. In some regions, Yongjin and Hongwang are even flat. It is understood that since last week's market crash, transaction volume has weakened month on month. As the holiday approaches, the overall operating rate has decreased. Terminal procurement is more likely to wait for the price trend after the holiday, and it is expected that stainless steel prices will remain weak in the short term.
