Gamma Polyglutamic acid Gamma PGA

In September, the trend of international crude oil prices was volatile and downward. The decline of crude oil prices was mainly due to the trade-off between the supply risk of Russian oil and the concern about economic recession caused by the Federal Reserve leading the global central bank to raise interest rates. The US strategic oil reserves fell continuously, hitting a 38 year low. OPEC+, an oil producing country, will increasingly demand for reducing inventory and increasing oil prices, and its idle capacity has been very limited, so it will be very difficult to increase production in the later period. Moreover, Western sanctions against Russia are still escalating, the effective period of the oil shipping ban is getting closer and closer, and the supply side is still on the high side in the near future.

 

Singapore’s fuel oil inventory decreased, supporting fuel oil prices. It is reported that the Singapore Enterprise Development Board (ESG): As of the week of September 28, Singapore’s fuel oil depot had dropped by 1.069 million barrels to a two-week low of 22.331 million barrels.

 

3、 Future market forecast

 

In September, the international crude oil price fell in shock, and the domestic raw material price fell, which was bad for the domestic ship fuel market; Before the festival, the downstream of the ship fuel market has been stocking up. At present, the ship fuel market has a strong wait-and-see mood, and it mainly needs to purchase. At present, the 180CST low sulfur market price of fuel oil is about 6500-6700 yuan/ton, and the 120CST low sulfur market price of fuel oil is about 6600-6800 yuan/ton. It is expected that the 180CST market of fuel oil will be dominated in the near future.

According to the monitoring of the business community, the price of natural rubber was 12152 yuan/ton as of September 23, up 0.43% from 12100 yuan/ton last Friday.

 

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

Since September, the commencement of downstream tire enterprises has not seen a significant increase, and the demand for cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber has been supported to some extent, but the strength is not great. In addition, the domestic tire output from January to August declined year on year, and the overall demand was weaker than last year. According to the latest data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, in August 2022, China’s output of rubber tire casings was 72.265 million, down 2.2% year on year. From January to August, the output of rubber tire casing decreased by 5.6% to 56422.1 million pieces compared with the same period last year.

Finishing after butadiene market rises

After the domestic butadiene market rose, the main reason was the increase in supply. This week, the major producers in Northeast China, Beibei Huajin and Fushun Petrochemical, started external bidding. At the same time, the external market performance was weak, the downstream cis-1,4-polybutadiene rubber starting load decreased, and the demand was poor. It was difficult to continue the rise in the domestic butadiene market.

 

Gamma Polyglutamic acid Gamma PGA

According to the sample data monitored by the business community, from September 16 to 22, the domestic butadiene market price rose from 9032 yuan/ton to 9148 yuan/ton, with a price increase of 1.28%, 16.15% month on month and 19.56% year on year. In terms of price, the delivery price in Shandong Luzhong is 9300-9400 yuan/ton, and the self lifting price in East China is 8700-8900 yuan/ton.

 

For enterprises, the butadiene price of Sinopec sales companies is 9000 yuan/ton. The 160000 t/a butadiene extraction unit of Fushun Petrochemical was in stable operation, 210 tons of goods were sold abroad through competitive bidding, and the bidding base price was 9000 yuan/ton. The 64000 t/a butadiene extraction unit of Shenhua Ningxia Coal is operating normally. At present, a small amount of goods are exported, and the price is reduced by 700 yuan/ton to 8600 yuan/ton.

With the interest meeting looming, the market sentiment may be depressed before rising, and the copper price may be strengthened periodically?

1. Related information

 

Gamma Polyglutamic acid food grade

1.1 In August, China’s refined copper (electrolytic copper) output was 917000 tons, up 3.9% year on year

 

From January to August, the output of refined copper (electrolytic copper) was 7.118 million tons, up 2.6% year on year; China’s copper production in August was 1.965 million tons, up 7.3% year on year. From January to August, the copper production was 14.184 million tons, up 4.3% year on year.

 

1.2 China Nonferrous Metals News: Can China’s crude copper refining capacity continue to expand?

 

By the end of 2021, China has a worldwide copper rough refining capacity of 8.82 million tons/year, and a global copper concentrate copper bearing capacity of 3.24 million tons/year in the same period.

 

In terms of production capacity, the self-sufficiency rate of crude copper refining resources in China is only 36.7%, while the copper bearing capacity of two major copper mine projects, Las Bambas Copper Mine and Toromocho Copper Mine, which are held by Chinese enterprises in Peru, totals 700000 tons/year. Both normal production is affected by different degrees due to community problems, and the actual resource security is lower.

 

From the perspective of resource supply, industrial operation, demand situation and corporate responsibility, China’s copper rough refining capacity should not continue to expand without the supply of its own copper resources.

 

2. Panel condition

 

The copper price continued to fluctuate in a narrow range yesterday, with 2714 net positions reduced and 8875 net positions reduced in the domestic market.

 

On the macro level, the results of the interest meeting are about to be released. Today, the market sentiment is weak. It is expected that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates by 75bp with a high probability in September. Within the market expectation, the market sentiment will recover after the boots are landed.

 

Fundamentally, the average premium of Copper Changjiang Nonferrous Metals is 830 yuan/ton, which is still at a historical high. The LME (0-3) premium is 68 dollars/ton. At the same time, the inventory of the world’s three major exchanges continues to decline to 184100 tons. Both sides of the copper market may be playing a game around delivery, which is weaker than at the beginning of the week.

 

In the short term, the macro emotional disturbance will intensify next week, but the back structure of high premium+low inventory will continue to strengthen, and the long short game will intensify. It is expected that the volatility of copper prices will intensify in the week.

 

Strong supply and demand support.

 

On the supply side, the copper concentrate port stock is 971000 tons, and the TC is at 81.6 dollars/dry ton, so the supply at the mine side is acceptable. In August, the domestic refined copper output was 917000 tons, up 3.9% year on year, and the smelting capacity was running smoothly.

 

From the perspective of copper exports and output, exports in August fell by 38.6% year on year, but the overall growth from January to August was still 6% year on year; The domestic output in August was 1.965 million tons, up 7.3% year on year. The domestic market and export consumption are performing well, and the current peak consumption season of Jinjiuyinshi is still expected.

 

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

3. Core logic

 

In the short term, with the support of fundamentals, the mood at the early stage of the interest meeting was weak. After the boots landed, the copper price may be strengthened by stages, and it is expected that the copper price will first decrease and then increase. Short term focus on the Federal Reserve’s interest rate increase plan in September.

 

4. Spot transaction

 

According to Shanghai Metal Network, transactions in the spot market were average yesterday, with the premium falling by 95 yuan/ton. Copper prices rebounded slightly. The spot premium was lower than the day before yesterday. In the session, the main stream of Pingshui copper rose by 630 yuan, and the good copper rose by about 650 yuan. The wet copper and differential copper were reported to be scarce.

 

5. Strategy Suggestions

 

It is suggested that speculators operate in a range, and short-term periodic bull opportunities can be concerned; It is better to purchase on demand at the industrial end. Pay attention to the risk points such as the Federal Reserve’s next interest rate increase signal, consumption and epidemic situation.

The domestic methanol market is rising and falling

The domestic methanol market rose and fell back, the methanol price rose significantly in the early stage, the recent rise slowed down, and the prices in some regions fell back. The international crude oil price fluctuated at a high level, while the coal price supported at a high level. At present, the main reasons that affect the methanol price are supply and demand. Most of the early maintenance devices have been restarted, and new devices such as Jiutai and Kunpeng have been put into operation. The supply has increased. However, the demand is general, most of them are rigid, and there is no sign of increase in the short term. Traders are mainly wait-and-see, and the international demand is poor. The rise of methanol market has slowed down, and the market is mainly volatile.

In the early stage, the shortage of supply has absorbed some of the benefits. In terms of downstream demand, each product is slightly different: BMW Hebi, the main producer of dimethyl ether, plans to restart and its output may increase; In terms of acetic acid, Hualu plans to reduce the output of acetic acid around the 20th; In terms of formaldehyde, Shandong Lianyi’s inventory decreased as expected, and the output may decrease; The start-up of other downstream MTBE and MTO units is relatively stable. The short-term supply has increased, while the demand side has no obvious positive effect. Methanol analysts of the business community predict that the domestic methanol market may weaken.

The starting load increased, and the PTA price fell

On September 19, the domestic futures market closed, with most of the commodity futures falling, led by energy chemicals, among which PTA fell by more than 3%. PTA spot price fell with each other. According to the price monitoring of the business community, the average price of the domestic PTA spot market was 6579 yuan/ton on September 19, down 2.02% from the previous trading day and up 33.10% year on year.

 

Gamma Polyglutamic acid Cosmetic

In terms of devices, with the restart of Sichuan Energy Chemical’s 1 million ton device after a short shutdown, the load of two sets of 3.3 million ton devices of Eason New Materials increased by 80%, and the PTA load increased to more than 70%. However, in general, PTA spot stocks are still relatively small and continue to be de stocked. According to statistics, as of September 15, the domestic PTA social inventory was 2025900 tons.

 

In the crude oil market, the good news on the supply side and the bad news on the demand side are playing a game. In particular, the geopolitical tension is becoming more serious, and the oil price is subject to more interference factors, which will further aggravate the shock of the oil market. Under the tight supply and demand of PX itself, PTA cost side support is relatively strong.

 

Gamma Polyglutamic Acid

Due to the gradual easing of the high-temperature weather in the terminal weaving in the near future, the starting load continues to rise, and the comprehensive starting rate of Jiangsu and Zhejiang looms is more than 71%. However, even in the “Golden Nine Silver Ten” inventory level, it is difficult to achieve the level of previous years. Therefore, the demand side of polyester remained flat, which led to the increased pressure on the polyester factory to go out of the warehouse and the difficulty in effectively improving the commencement.

 

Analysts from the business community believe that although some devices have been restarted or the load has been increased recently, the short-term supply of PTA is difficult to increase significantly, which will still support the price of PTA. However, the sustainability of the downstream demand side warming remains to be further observed.
