However, the positive macro news did not pass on to the viscose staple fiber industry chain, market turnover is still flat, almost no response to the news, yarn and grey fabric for viscose market take a hollow view.
The price of downstream man-made cotton yarn was 17200 yuan/ton on the 16th day, down 0.72% annually, or 125 yuan/ton, or 14.68% year-on-year, or up to 2560 yuan/ton. Big factories offer two-level differentiation is more serious, middle-end large factories offer 16200-16500 yuan/ton, high-end large factories offer 17400-17800 yuan/ton. From this week’s spot trend of cotton and cotton yarn, the benefits of Sino-US trade are gradually enlarging, yarn prices are trying to stabilize, but downstream demand is still poor, some yarn stocks are still at a high level, and textile mills are still under great pressure.
In summary, business analysts believe that polyester staple fibers and viscose staple fibers are the same door. Polyester staple fibers make good use of the news to drive a large deal of transactions and transfer inventory smoothly. Viscose staple yarn passes smoothly, and downstream cotton yarn still keeps stock for more than 20 days. As the peak season of gold, silver and silver is approaching, the Development and Reform Commission has issued a series of policies to promote yarn sales. China-US trade on September 1 still imposes tariffs on nearly 65% of textile products. Faced with the volatility of Sino-US friction, the Chinese people have become accustomed to it and have little impact. It is expected that the viscose will not fall again in the short term and run smoothly, waiting for September to change its former state and soar into the sky.
