HC ferrochrome Market Details

From the perspective of supply and demand, domestic production and imports of high-carbon ferrochrome have experienced “double growth” since August. The supply side continued to increase in September, which led to the end of the difficulty in finding spot goods in the early market. The supply of high-carbon ferrochrome is expected to be in October. will continue to remain high.

Taking the base price of 304 cold-rolled spot market as an example, it fell from the initial high of 15,500 yuan/ton to the current 14,600 yuan/ton, and the futures price fell even more. In addition to the sharp “diving” of prices, transaction difficulties are even more difficult. After further accumulation of inventory during the National Day holiday, the pressure on the stainless steel market to destock continues to increase.

Steel mills have canceled price limits and cut production simultaneously. The market continues to be tested. Currently, 300 The cost of stainless steel is roughly 400 yuan/ton (alloy process). If the terminal market continues to be sluggish, it is not ruled out that stainless steel plants will expand production cuts.

In addition, the bleak operating rate of the foundry industry this year has been difficult to improve, resulting in the high-chromium retail market failing to usher in the “Golden Nine and Silver Ten” market as expected. Dealers’ sales cycle has lengthened, shipments have decreased, iron prices lack speculation opportunities, and operational enthusiasm has been affected. The impact is obvious, and the activity of the zero-order market has also cooled down.
