Analysis review

From the observation of market changes, the price of wood pulp still showed an upward trend this week, and the price of pulp futures was mixed. As of the 4th, there was no major change in the supply and demand of pulp, the spot supply was still tight, the external quotation remained firm, and the domestic wood pulp spot quotation increased. In the downstream market, transactions were limited, and under the pressure of profit, paper companies were less motivated to stock up, and they mostly maintained the state of just needing to make up.

The opening price of sp2210 contract was 7,008 RMB/ton, the latest price was 6,874 RMB/ton, the turnover was 52,200 lots, and the position was 50,901 lots.

Market outlook

The wood pulp analyst of SunSirs believes that the current pulp futures price has fallen, and the game between supply and demand in the pulp market continues. However, the supply in the spot market is still tight recently, which supports the spot price of wood pulp to a certain extent. It is expected that the spot price of wood pulp may remain fluctuate at high levels in the short term.
