Upstream: The international crude oil price fell in shock, and the Federal Reserve suggested that the interest rate increase was far from over, and it was not close to the end of monetary tightening. At present, the interest rate increase of the Federal Reserve has limited impact on inflation, which is not enough to reduce inflation. The Federal Reserve may need to take more tightening measures to curb inflation in the future, which will affect the decline of crude oil prices. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies (OPEC+) once again lowered the growth expectation of global crude oil demand in 2022. With the risk of global economic recession intensifying, the future slowdown of demand growth is a certainty, and fuel demand will also face pressure. The slowing demand of China, the largest oil importer, also caused widespread concern among investors, and the oil market fell sharply. In addition, the overall economy is weak, and the prospect of energy demand is still not optimistic. The economic weakness depresses oil prices.
Downstream: the price of calcined coke was basically stable last week; The price of metal silicon market declines; The price of electrolytic aluminum in the downstream rose in a volatile way. As of November 20, the price was 19,273.33 RMB/ ton; Downstream carbon enterprises have good purchasing enthusiasm.
Last week, the international crude oil shocks and declines, and the cost support of oil coke is limited; At present, the petroleum coke stock of local refining enterprises is at a medium low level, but the number of imported coke arriving in Hong Kong recently is large, and the petroleum coke market is sufficient. It is expected that the price of China local refined petroleum coke will decline slightly in the near future.
