2、 Analysis and comment

This week, the international crude oil mainly fell. Under the influence of domestic public health events, the logistics and transportation were not smooth, the shipment of enterprises was blocked, the overall mentality of  xylene market was poor, and the price mainly fell.

In terms of the external market, the external market xylene fell in shock this week.

In terms of crude oil, it was reported within the week that the International Energy Agency planned to release 120 million barrels of crude oil reserves, the tightening of supply was expected to ease slightly, and the oil price fell as a whole. As of April 8, Brent fell $1.61 / barrel, or 1.54%; WTI fell $41.01/barrel, or 1.02%.

3、 Future forecas

In terms of crude oil, the situation in Russia and Ukraine is full of uncertainty, and the EU may introduce a new round of sanctions against Russia, and the oil price support remains. However, the release of reserve plans by the United States and the International Energy Agency may curb the rise in oil prices. The short-term oil price fluctuates violently. Continue to pay attention to the geopolitical situation, the relationship between supply and demand of crude oil, OPEC + decisions on crude oil production, the inventory dynamics of US crude oil and refined oil, and the impact of global economic conditions on crude oil prices.

The crude oil price remains high in the short term, and the cost side support remains unabated; There are factories in Shandong to reduce the load and stop, the port inventory in East China is low, and the supply side has a certain positive support. However, the demand continues to be weak, the mentality of the industry is poor, and the price of  xylene is difficult to maintain, which is likely to continue to decline. Pay attention to the market trend of crude oil, gasoline and diesel, the dynamics of xylene ports and devices, and the impact of downstream market and device dynamics on the price of xylene.
