Warehouse Receipt Inventory: 3,812 warehouse receipts, - 300, effective forecast 3,423.

Main positions: Top 20 long positions 541,513, + 42,887; short positions 701,756, + 49,927. Both long and short increases, and the clearance increases.

Conclusion: the strengthening of environmental protection supervision in North China has an impact on the start-up of methanol, but the expectation of new units put into operation puts pressure on the market. The arrival of imported cargoes at East China port exceeded expectations, and the unloading speed of main downstream olefin plants increased rapidly. Some of the cargoes were waiting for centralized unloading, and the port inventory picked up again. From the perspective of demand, the coastal methanol to olefin unit has been in stable operation in the near future, but there is no further increment expectation, and the continuous weakness of northeast vinylidene alcohol affects the methanol economy, which is unfavorable to the methanol demand. From the technical point of view, MA2001 contract positions increase downward, the future market or continue to seek support downward, negative in the short term.
