Crude oil

OPEC's production cuts have been setbacks. Since countries such as Iraq and Nigeria have failed to implement complete production cuts, the meeting scheduled on the 4th has been postponed. At present, Saudi Arabia and Russia have very strong requirements for other countries to implement 100% production cuts. In the case that these countries did not honor the reduction in production or stated that they would compensate for the reduction in production in the future, Tsarist Russia is unwilling to continue to extend production cuts. At present, Gulf OPEC has indicated that it will cut 1.2 million barrels per day of voluntary production cuts from July. We believe that as demand recovers, OPEC pursues a higher market share, and production reduction and relaxation are high probability events. At present, it is only a matter of time. The future market focus will be on whether the supply return can match the recovery of demand. In terms of operation, it is advised to maintain the neutral strategy.

Trading Strategy

1. Arbitrage: According to the data released by, the output of construction materials is still slightly increasing, the inventory decline is expanding, and the table needs to rebound. Last week, southern China was greatly affected by heavy rains. As the output of construction materials continues to rise, the construction materials are expected to rise in the off-season. Judging from the rebound in August and September, it is recommended that you can try more than 01 coke ore, that is, 01 coke more than 01 iron ore. The risk is that Brazil's shipment continues to be lower than expected in the later period.

2. The upward drive of iron ore has weakened, and the current high level is volatile. It is recommended that the option strategy be maintained temporarily.


The downstream market restarted the replenishment, the production and sales volume of polyester increased sharply.

The estimated balance sheet in June and July is still accumulating rapidly under the current high inventory background. Under the background of polyester export demand suppressed by the epidemic, it is necessary to lower the PTA processing fee to prompt PTA to reduce production to rebalance. In terms of operation, it is advised to wait and see for unilateral strategy; for the strategy across varieties, it is estimated that the accumulated inventory of PTA will continue in May and June, and its performance will be weak; for basis trading and strategy across period, it is advised to focus on the basis adjustment ability of mainstream factories in the short term, which may provide good opportunity for reverse cash and carry arbitrage. It is advised to focus on the risks of unilateral volatility of recent crude oil prices, the turning point of the epidemic situation in the external market, the possibility of non-profit maintenance under the high production concentration of the PTA plant and the downstream restock space.
