Spot Polyethylene trading was reduced as many market participants attended NPE, which limited our transactions. As expected, our completed volumes fell short of our traditional averages, though the market still felt good and we expect activity to pick right back up in the week ahead. There was considerable export demand live at NPE and we lightly filled some orders, but without a steady flow of offers, high volume dealings were challenging to complete. We started to see some fresh offers on Friday as others also felt the need to transact and we were happy to be net buyers, as we have started to strategically restock as the market has taken a nice price break and seems to have found some good stability. April PE contracts became more complex as competing indices took different positions, leaving questions about final April pricing already more than a week into May. One major index posted up $.03/lb for the month, endorsing producers price increase effort, while the other which had estimated flat a couple weeks ago, maintained their position despite surely being pressured to revise higher. It was a rare divergence and we happen to also agree that domestic pricing was mostly steady during April, our prices actually averaged down a cent. We do see some additional market support developing and its very possible that the $.03/lb increase could become fully implemented by the end of May.

Have questions? We have answers!
How much resin is generally available?
We normally see about 10-25 million lbs of spot resin each week, but occasionally, in very loose markets, have had more than 50 million lbs offered on the spot floor.
Can I buy a Specific Brand from The Plastics Exchange?
We do not sell branded prime, but can generally get you a Generic Prime substitute to fit your needs. If you do require a specific brand, you need to maintain your current supply channel, be it though a Distributor or Producer direct.
