Lange steel network specially invited several steel trading bosses in Beijing to analyze and predict the steel market trend this spring.
Pay attention to the actual demand after the resumption of production of the steel plant
Zhang Yahui, chairman of Beijing Zhonggang Trade Co., Ltd
Beijing Zhonggang Trading Co., Ltd. started construction as scheduled after the festival. The main reason for the upward price shock after the festival is that the supply side is affected by seasonal factors and production restrictions in the northern region during the Winter Olympic Games. The output of blast furnace and finished materials has decreased significantly. At present, the overall output is low, and the inventory pressure is significantly lower than that in previous years, especially the low inventory of steel mills, which makes steel mills have a strong willingness to support prices. We should pay attention to the resumption of production of steel mills after the Winter Olympic Games.
In terms of demand, the macro policy released a loose signal, the central bank's credit supply in January achieved a "good start", the increment of social finance rebounded significantly, and the new RMB loans and new social finance both hit a record high in a single month. Among them, the investment in infrastructure has been significantly increased, boosting the market's optimistic expectation of later demand.
