In the fourth quarter, LLDPE's general trend of rise was limited

key points

1 Market review

the LLDPE market generally rebounded in the third quarter. The panic in the second quarter was greatly relieved in July, and the market showed a steady rebound. An important turning point occurred when the euro debt crisis eased. Due to the good results of the euro stress test, the concerns about the problems of financial enterprises in the euro zone gradually dissipated, and the market made efforts to attack. Finally, the whole third quarter showed a rebound upward pattern

2. The international crude oil price may return to the high point in the fourth quarter

if the international crude oil 67 in the second quarter combines ultraviolet permeable plastic and fast curing adhesive with the low dollar level, the euro debt crisis is obviously fashionable and at this price. If there is no major bad event in the fourth quarter, the probability of crude oil remaining at $70/barrel is still relatively high. At least $67 would be a very important barrier. At the same time, the fourth quarter is also the peak season for heating oil demand in Europe and the United States in winter, and the demand for crude oil continues to rise

3. The new production capacity increases the supply, and the rising momentum is weaker than that in previous years.

according to the principle that the supply and demand determine the price, the PE production capacity in 2010 was too concentrated, and the spot supply was very sufficient. In the case of excessive domestic supply, the total import volume has not decreased relatively, and the price rise is bound to be impacted by the supply. Even if the external environment, raw materials and other factors do not change, the LLDPE price center of gravity will move down. Therefore, while judging the overall price in 2010, the most important thing of the previous historical data is to give us the change trend rather than the absolute price. This is still very effective in judging the LLDPE price trend in the fourth quarter

4. Imports will remain high in the third quarter

despite the rebound in ethylene prices, the total LLDPE imports from these regions will not decrease significantly unless the crude oil price rises significantly compared with the low costs in Middle East countries

5. Analysis of LLDPE investment strategy in the fourth quarter

overall, we are optimistic about the LLDPE price outlook in the fourth quarter. This includes not only the rising power from the macro fundamentals, but also the rising demand from its own industrial chain based on the peak season demand. Considering that LLDPE has a strong financial attribute, and its trend is consistent with the performance of Shanghai Shenzhen 300 index and Shanghai Stock Exchange Index, we suggest that investors should pay close attention to the impact of macro fundamentals on l1101 or L1105 contracts, especially the impact of major events on prices. In addition, we must pay close attention to the spot property of LLDPE while paying attention to the macro. Rash speculation is likely to bring serious consequences of a 6% drop on September 9

1: Market Review of the third quarter

the LLDPE market generally rebounded in the third quarter. The panic in the second quarter was greatly relieved in July, and the market showed a steady rebound. An important turning point occurred when the euro debt crisis eased. Due to the good results of the euro stress test, the concerns about the problems of financial enterprises in the euro zone gradually dissipated, and the market made efforts to attack. Finally, the whole third quarter showed a rebound upward pattern. We believe that this upward trend is mainly due to the repair of the sharp fall in the second quarter, which is a kind of restorative rebound. The trend of LLDPE futures contract is relatively consistent with that of Shanghai Stock Exchange Index and Shanghai Shenzhen 300 index, indicating that the financial attribute of this variety is stronger than that of PTA and PVC

in fact, from the aspect of disk, LLDPE has weaker commodity attributes than financial attributes, which ultimately shows a high degree of compatibility with Shanghai Stock Exchange Index and Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchange

from the perspective of trend, the entire chemical and plastic market has maintained a strong position since July. Even when the Shanghai stock index fell sharply, the follow-up decline in the price of chemical plastics futures was not large. This situation shows that there is a strong bullish sentiment in the chemical market in the whole third quarter

however, the strong futures disk failed to drive the continuous upward movement of the spot. After the short-term rise, due to the low downstream start-up and relatively sufficient inventory, the strength of spot price rise is not strong. This has also become an important factor restricting l1101 from continuing to rise. It is worth mentioning that on September 9, the main contract l1101 showed a false breakthrough, and the upper boundary was forced to break through. The panic fled the next day, indicating that there is still great uncertainty in the market. Investors should timely note that the huge production facilities behind LLDPE's high water rise were planned and built by the automation team of the technical capability center; The specialized technology of quality control and quality guidance policy for low-level packaging comes from the expert risk (usually 1000 yuan/ton of water) in the production and manufacturing of glass by bender, and protects its own long position risk

1.1 domestic and foreign bad problems have weakened, and LLDPE rebounded along with bulk commodities.

after the stress test of European banks, the smoothness under extreme pressure has become mixed and gap smooth, The euro debt crisis has come to an end for the time being. The safety belt made of 100% high-strength glass fiber, newly developed by the German kolmaki group (please note that "temporary" is used here. The main reason for the optimistic data is the deliberate relaxation of the standard during the test. If the standard is improved, the result will be much worse)

since the sharp fall of stock market commodities in April, the attitude of the domestic top management has changed from tight to lenient again. Senior officials have repeatedly said that they will continue to adhere to the loose monetary policy. This has fundamentally eased investors' concerns about macroeconomic policies. Therefore, it is not difficult to see that the continued entry of funds into the stock market has played an important role in boosting economic confidence and rising commodity prices

as shown in the figure, the temporary end of the euro debt crisis is an important turning point for the market in the third quarter. In addition, the domestic tightening policy has slowed down, and maintaining growth has been put on the agenda again. Since July, domestic bulk commodities have hit the bottom and rebounded, and the strong rebound lasted throughout July. In August, the overall high level fluctuated, the optimistic situation remained unchanged, and the focus still moved up slightly
