| Near the Spring Festival, with the stop of construction projects, most businesses in most areas have plans to leave the city for holiday ahead of time. Therefore, in the near future, they mainly pay attention to the delivery and remittance, and the price has been lowered again and again. According to the market, at present, there is still not much preparation for goods preparation in the downstream. On the one hand, there is still room for downward price before the festival; In addition, there is not much confidence in the market after the Spring Festival. In the short term, the market fatigue of seamless steel pipe is difficult to change, and the price of seamless steel pipe is still weak. Affected by the continuous decline in steel prices, steel social inventory continued to decline. At the end of December, the social inventory of five major steel products in the main markets of China fell to 9.63 million tons, with a decrease of 70000 tons on a month on month basis, with a decrease rate of 0.74%. Although it decreased for the 10th consecutive month, the decline rate narrowed for two consecutive months; In January this year, as of January 16, steel inventory rose to 10.41 million tons, an increase of 780000 tons over the end of the previous year, an increase of 8.07%. Show that affected by iron ore prices to stop falling and stabilize, the market expected steel prices have been basically close to the bottom. With regard to the sharp reduction of the current advance price, the downstream market thinks that the steel mills should not reduce the price by such a large margin in the near future near the North China strip steel meeting. Although there is no price difference between Ruifeng and the ex factory price of Qianjin, Ruifeng will not necessarily make up for the drop by a large margin. Today's sharp drop in the ex factory price of narrow-band may have an impact on the price of seamless steel pipe, and the 2000 yuan mark may fall through, and the support for small narrow-band will be reduced. Therefore, it is expected that the short-term steel strip prices will continue to fluctuate downward.
Although the billet price was temporarily stable yesterday, due to the weak turnover in the finished product market, the billet price is expected to break through the 2000 mark, and the cost end price is not bottomed out, which makes the overall profile market pessimistic. Traders reduce prices and promote sales, especially H-beam prices. Today, the prices of seamless steel tubes in North China and Northeast China are generally falling, The prices in many southern cities, such as Shanghai, continued to decline, with a general decline of 20-80 yuan. At present, from the perspective of the north and South regions, the project in the northern market is basically completed, the downstream demand is sluggish, and the procurement situation is very few. Traders generally do not have winter storage operation, so they often adopt direct delivery from steel mills, and the quotation keeps up with the pace of steel mills. In the southern market, affected by the continuous arrival of resources from northern steel mills, traders' inventory and sales pressure generally increased. In order to speed up the shipment, the market has obvious intention of killing and falling, and prices in some cities continue to decline, and there is no sign of stopping the decline. At present, there are frequent bad news in the steel market. Under the pressure of various negative factors and the passive rise of supply and inventory, under the background of shrinking demand, speeding up shipment has become the mainstream of section steel market operation. Therefore, it is expected that the domestic seamless steel pipe price will continue to fall in the short term. As a result, the iron and steel industry has entered the dilemma of "production loss, no production is more difficult". Under this background, the iron ore market is difficult to rise. However, it can be seen that the iron ore market still has a stabilizing effect on the iron ore market without a large-scale shutdown of steel mills. However, it can be seen that the iron ore market is still in a weak position, so it is not ruled out that the iron ore market has a supplementary decline. Comprehensive factor analysis shows that the iron ore market is still fluctuating in recent years, and the trend of seamless steel pipe market needs to be observed.
