In the news, OPEC will expand production agreement to 1.6 million barrels per day. In the later period, SunSirs believes that oil prices in 2020 still need to focus on two aspects, one is the implementation of OPEC + production reductions, and the other is the actual decline in crude oil demand caused by the global economic cooling. However, the previous oil price fell by a large margin, and its support for ethylene was insufficient. The market price of ethylene outside the market fell. The downstream styrene price fluctuated and consolidated, and the price of ethanol continued to stabilize, which could not support the price of ethylene, and there was a possibility of a downward trend.
The ethylene analyst of SunSirs believes that in the near future, due to the news that China and the United States will soon sign the first phase of the economic and trade agreement, major global stock markets have risen, and the atmosphere of the oil futures market has been boosted. Therefore, business analyst data analysts predict that ethylene prices will remain in a narrow range next, do not rule out the possibility of rising.
