The China Coal Transportation and Marketing Association issued a proposal on doing a good job in ensuring supply and price stability during the peak summer period, stating that since this year, due to multiple factors such as the rise in international bulk commodity prices, the prices of some bulk commodities have continued to rise. As the peak of summer coal consumption is approaching, in order to maintain the stable operation of the economy, we will do a good job in ensuring the supply of coal and stabilizing the price. Following iron ore, coal prices have attracted attention, and the price increase at the raw material end is constrained to be negative for steel prices, and there is insufficient room for steel prices to rise.

The raw material side has continued to weaken, steel mills have lowered prices, market mentality is unstable, traders bargaining for shipments, and most of them are sold at low prices. Mainly, steel prices are expected to remain stable over the weekend.
