China’s export prices for plate soften amid weakening domestic market

China’s export prices for plate dipped further over the past week amid a lacklustre domestic market.

Metal Bulletin’s weekly assessment of prices for May shipments of commercial-grade, chromium-added plate for the week ended Tuesday April 4 was rolled over, at $470-480 per tonne fob, due to the country being on holiday on Monday and Tuesday to mark the Tomb-Sweeping Festival.
But market participants who returned to work on Wednesday put prices at only $465-470 per tonne fob.
