September 1 night night futures market continues to rise, the market sentiment and excitement. Since August, in a series of policies led by good, steel futures performance eye-catching, this time again strong market can continue to become the focus of attention.
Steel futures sky soared
Friday night, steel futures continued daytime trend, led the commodity market. Hot rolled futures main force 1801 contract to close at 4367 yuan / ton, compared with the previous day settlement price rose as high as 5.25%; thread futures 1801 contract rose also reached 3.88%.

There is a worry behind the high innovation
Talking about the recent trend of steel futures, West New Shinkansen senior researcher Qiu Yuecheng pointed out last week: "Futures this week is down after the first half of the spot turnover continued to slump, the price impact of the futures trend, the second half of a series of positive, including August manufacturing and steel industryPMIMore than expected recovery, the Ministry of Environmental Protection website hanging out of the "Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and the surrounding areas 2017 - 2018 autumn and winter air pollution control action program," the four supporting programs, Bengang 4747 cubic meters of blast furnace explosion, triggering the market For environmental protection overweight and security inspection upgrade is expected to further enhance the large influx of long-term funds pulled up futures, and driven spot prices fell to rise. "
Yongan Futures Research Institute Vice President Zhu Shiwei that the recent rise in prices mainly from the mood and expectations. "Is expected to be two aspects, one is yesterday, Benxi Iron and Steel explosion triggered a steel mill repair expectations, this will result in supply shrinkage; the other is the supply side of the intensity is expected to be strong, followed by" 2 + 26 "," 19 " influences."
But he also reminded that the market now ignores the demand side of the change: First, the slow rise in inventory; Second, the impact of environmental protection supervision on consumption. These two days can be seen with the price rise, the transaction did not appear to improve, the current rise in the lack of strong endogenous motivation. "From the futures market, the thread has not risen, the coil has been premium.Now we have to look at the extent of the weekend to follow up on the spot, if the spot follow-up is better, then the futures price may be further on the red; if the spot Follow the weak words, then the futures go up the space is very limited.

This kind of market situation judgments undoubtedly enlarge the environmental protection and other relevant policies for the impact of market supply, is one-sided, alarmist speculation behavior, inevitably from the profits of the suspect.
