SunSirs: Crude Oil Slumps, Bringing Synthetic Rubber Cold Atmosphere

March 10 2020 10:15:01     SunSirs (Daisy)

Last Friday's collapse of talks between OPEC and Russia over a planned output cut was the latest in a series of black swans that, unlike last September, have sent oil tumbling.

On Monday, international crude oil continued to plunge, with April crude falling more than 25% to around $30 a barrel by 4 p.m. on March 9, and at one point falling as low as $27.34 a barrel.

The drop in crude oil on the domestic petrochemical market forms a strong negative. Some chemical products futures opened directly down limit. Natural rubber is also inevitable to fall, up to the close of the natural rubber may contract fell to 10290 RMB/ton, down 5.90%.

Although the decline of crude oil has formed a big negative pressure on commodities, the transmission of crude oil price decline to downstream chemicals needs a certain amount of time. On the other hand, the current crude oil price decline is too fast, with the adjustment of Saudi Arabia and other policies will not exclude the crude oil inflation. So, the effect of crude oil on synthetic rubber is still in the bearish stage.
