In terms of methanol, the domestic methanol market is in a stalemate and the spot transaction is poor. Although the macro was strong and the futures disk rose strongly, the overall spot follow-up was insufficient and the basis weakened rapidly. The prices in the main production areas in Northwest China are mixed, and the prices in Inner Mongolia are lowered and those in Guanzhong, Shaanxi are raised. However, it is difficult to deal in large quantities; The downstream receiving price in northern Shandong, the main end market, has remained basically stable. Although the upstream price has been lowered, the freight has risen, and it is difficult for traders to push up and make profits. The short-term domestic methanol market is dominated by stalemate.
