It is learned that this haze of long duration and large coverage has not dispersed yet. A recent snow relieved haze in some areas, but in central southern Hebei Province, central and northern Henan Province, Linfen Shanxi Province, central and western Shandong Province, Guanxi Shaanxi Province is still shrouded by heavy or even severe haze with poor air quality. The above areas are main producing areas of cored wire and its raw materials where refractory material manufacturers and iron steel enterprises concentrate. Affected by environmental factors, numerous cored wire manufacturers and steel enterprises are still in limited production or even stopping production. According to the meteorological department forecast, the haze weather will continue for several days.
Today, the cored wire market is still stable on the whole with no obvious change in the prices of various products. Calcium silicon cored wire (Ca28Si55∮13mm) is 10,500 to 11,500 yuan per ton. Calcium silicon cored wire (Ca30Si58) is 11,800 to 12,300 yuan per ton. Solid pure calcium cored wire (Ca98%min∮9mm) is 10,500 to 11,000 yuan per ton. Ferro calcium cored wire (Ca30∮13mm) is 8,300 to 8,800 yuan per ton. Ferro calcium cored wire (Ca30∮30mm) is 10,000 to 10,500 yuan per ton. Carbon cored wire (C98%∮13mm) is 6,500 to 7,000 yuan per ton. Silicon magnesium cored wire (Si40Mg28Re2∮13mm) is 11,500 to 12,500 yuan per ton. Ferro titanium cored wire (Ti30%min∮13mm) is 11,000 to 11,100 yuan per ton. Nodulizer cored wire is 11,500 to 11,800 yuan per ton. Ca28 (natural block) is 10,100 yuan per ton. Ca30 (natural block) is 10,300 yuan per ton. Metal crude calcium is 15,100-15,300 yuan per ton. Cold rolled strip steel SPCC 0.35-0.45mm is 5,100 yuan per ton, SPCC 0.35*55 Q195 is 4,470 yuan per ton, SPCC0.35-0.39*55 is 4,500 yuan per ton and SPCC0.4-0.49*55 is 4,450 yuan per ton. Seamless metal calcium cored wire (Ca98%min∮9mm) is 10,000 to 11,000 yuan per ton and seamless metal calcium cored wire (Ca98%min∮10mm) is 15,000 to 16,000 yuan per ton.
The export transaction price of calcium silicon cored wire (ca30si60∮13mm) is 1,550 to 1,630 US dollars per ton. Calcium silicon cored wire (ca28si55∮13mm) is 1,530 to 1,610 US dollars per ton. Bite type solid core pure calcium core wire (ca98%min∮9mm) is 1,670 to 1,750 US dollars per ton. Pure calcium cored wire (Ca30 ∮13mm) is 1,350 to 1,400 US dollars per ton. There is no adjustment comparing with the last month (FOB price, Tianjin Port).
It is estimated that by Spring Festival, there will be no large fluctuation in the later market.
