           Last Saturday TISCO mill’s 430 guidingprice was increased 8 USD/MT. It quoted FOB 1385 USD/MT, the same with lastweek price. This week 430 market still was not improved obviously, and theprice performance was flat. In addition, market demand was still not improved, andmerchants mainly quoted stably. Currently traders mainly sell the goods, somarket would not talk about rise in price, especially in the current conditionof enough cold rolled resources.Generallyspeaking, 430 price trend was weak. Although the main price was stable andsteel mill guiding price was increased, some traders still reducing the price.The reason is the inventory pressure is too large, which make the fund tight.In the short term, 430 market would be steady. Delivering goods and reducing inventoryare the urgent matter.
