*  The advantage of policy

1, The country main tone of iron and steelindustry standards management don’t have changes. The listed companies may be rectifiedaccording to the instructions, involving the increase cost.

2, Foshan convened 2017 city'senvironmental protection work meeting, deploying the environmental renovationwork in 2017, and Five District government has made"environmental protection military order", which explained theenvironmental protection normal won't change!

*  "Supply and demand” is out-of-balance transitorily, due to demandhas not recovered yet.

1,  Thecurrent market is full of resources, some goods even are on the road.

2, Under the strategy of"environmental protection" and "close down backward productionfacilities", many steel mills have not resumed production, which willaffect the following supply.

3, The slitting factories workers were backto work nearly two days. Lost of surfaceprocessing of titanium, 8K factories have not formally started working yet.Buyers still wait and see the steel prices, till price falling again then theywould consider to buy.

*  The support of cost

Taking the current mainstream origin main circulation 304/2B in Foshanmarket for an example, as it almost unilateral fell nearly two months,merchant's basic order cost is concentrated in FOB 2220-2380 USD/MT, and the deliverysequence of high price order ahead of low price order, which would further makethe current market transaction price with the order cost form severe upsidedown.
