Domestic downstream demand is strong, and the supply and demand is good. On the other hand, domestic manufacturing investment is rising steadily. With the impact of vaccine progress, overseas Relatively lagging market bullish expectations are temporarily formed.

The risk appetite for market funds rose in November, and other domestic markets such as the stock market and futures market showed a significant upward trend as a whole.
