The Spring Festival is coming, magnesium ingot is expected to be stable. According to the data of the SunSirs, the average market price of domestic magnesium ingot on January 17, 2020 is 14,083.33RMB/ton, and the recent price is relatively stable.

On January 17, 2020, the ex factory cash price including tax of magnesium ingots (99.9%, non pickling, simple packaging) in the main domestic production areas remained stable. The specific price range is as follows:

The ex factory cash exchange including tax in fugu area is 13,850-14,100RMB/ton; the cash exchange in Taiyuan area is 14,000-14,100RMB/ton; the cash exchange in Wenxi area is 14,050-14,200RMB/ton; the cash exchange in Ningxia area is 13,900-14,000RMB/ton.

The Spring Festival is coming, and the trading is being weak

Close to the Spring Festival, the trading tends to be weak, and the magnesium ingot market runs smoothly. It is reported that the magnesium ingot manufacturers' pre-sale situation has occurred from time to time in the near future. The manufacturers' low price pre-sale, after all, there is a rapid return of capital demand at the end of the year. At present, the downstream alloy manufacturers and magnesium powder manufacturers have completed their stock in succession years ago. The downstream raw material inventory has accumulated to a certain extent, and there are not many magnesium ingot manufacturers in stock, so there is a balance between supply and demand.
