Steel cost here in China decreased a lot since early Nov. to today at a relatively stable level. The winter heat supply and limitation to environment pollution did not cause cost increase. The coming winter Olympic held in Beijing also has limited influence to economy based on policy to encourage online live. Considering the Chinese government policy to control real estate industry price level, the demand for steel construction in Dec. may remain low and won’t be as good as the same period last year. While the home appliance and machinery industries make production stock and the automotive industry will continue to increase production as the chip shortage eases, therefore sheet demand in Dec. May increase. Considering the low demands and predicted cold winter, there may be still space for cost decrease. Some local buyers think price already decreased at a relatively low point and may have willing to buy stock. Keep watching, buying as requested.
