Steel prices are still volatile
Steel price for October delivery today on the Shanghai Exchange increased by 20 yuan to 4,769 yuan/ton at the time of the survey at 10:00 am (Vietnam time).
Yesterday the market recorded iron ore price Futures in Asia fell as traders worried about high prices denting steel mills’ profit margins while Chinese demand for the steelmaking raw material fueled an earlier rally.
On the Dalian Commodity Exchange, China’s September iron ore delivery ended in daytime trading 0.6 percent lower at 928.50 yuan ($139.32) a tonne, after when it hit a 10-month high.
The most actively traded iron ore contract in July on the Singapore Exchange fell 0.2 percent to $143.55 a tonne.
The prolonged price increase of iron ore ended in the first session of the week, bringing price of raw materials for steel production in China to a six-week high of $144.50 a tonne following Beijing’s pledge to support the struggling domestic economy.
Moves by China’s top steelmaker to ease Covid-19 restrictions have fueled a price rally while shrinking stockpiles of imported iron ore at Chinese ports.
However, high raw material steel prices are increasing challenges for mills as demand has not yet increased strongly after weeks of shutdown and China is determined to limit steel production this year.
“Short-term iron ore demand has been stronger than expected, but downstream steel mills profitability has been weak,” said Sinosteel Futures analysts.
