SunSirs: Energy, Balance of Spot Market, Coke Continues to Vibrate and Rebound

February 12 2020 09:33:44     SunSirs (Selena)

Futures: coke market rebounded on Monday, closing 1,799 (up 5.5), adding more than 13,000 positions and increasing trading volume. The supply and demand of downstream building materials are mismatched due to the epidemic of COVID-19. The supply side of coke is also affected by transportation and raw coking coal, so the overall trend of contract in recent months is slightly stronger than that of steel mine. Today's intraday capital increase, after the market pressure, short-term or continued shock rebound volatility.

Spot: the coke market is mainly stable, and the quotation of quasi first-class metallurgical coke is 1,900 RMB/ ton for Rizhao Port, 1,800 RMB/ ton for Shanxi, 1,960 RMB/ ton for Tangshan. Affected by the spread of COVID-19, at present, most coal mines in the upper reaches are delayed to start construction, the supply of coking coal is in short supply, the coke inventory in the coke enterprises is accumulated during the holidays, and the limited transportation results in the decrease of the arrival of coking coal in some coke enterprises, so as to ensure more limited production in the later stage. In terms of steel plants, the coke inventory continued to decline, but most of the steel plants did not significantly increase the demand for coke, and there was still uncertainty about the start-up and transportation conditions. In the later stage, there were plans for continuous production reduction and maintenance, and the coke operation was temporarily stable in the short term.

Strategy analysis: at present, the government has strengthened macro-control, increased counter cyclical regulation, and relaxed policies to stabilize the market. The unfavorable start of the first quarter of 2020 has been determined. The national epidemic prevention and control measures for COVID-19 have significantly inhibited the flow of people and put pressure on the screw steel. Meanwhile, the coke production, logistics and transportation will also be affected by the epidemic and face the expectation of supply side contraction. Screw steel supply and demand mismatch is certain, short-term product decline, steel production will suppress the rebound space charge. After the epidemic situation is effectively controlled, the rebound of production demand will drive the market of raw materials higher.
