Polyethylene trading was limited by the lack of fresh supply as producers generally withheld their material from the spot market pending post-hurricane restarts and / or the evaluation of overall market conditions. There were a few prime railcars made available from reseller forecasted commitments later in the week and these sold fairly quickly. The majority of our truckload orders were filled from The Plastics Exchange market making inventories, which we maintain to assure liquidity for our spot marketplace. The first round of July export offers sold out immediately, and we have not seen additional fresh offers, though some traders still have limited volumes to sell. Significant export demand remains though we started to see a little pushback on price again as freight rates from Asia to LatAm paused in their rise and showed some signs of softening, but still remain right up against their highs of this cycle. Producers ultimately rolled their $.03/lb price increase from June into July which already has its own $.05/lb increase on the table. It is still to be seen as the month is still young, but Beryl might prove to be the catalyst to help producers secure a price increase in July. In addition, a fresh nickel has already been issued for August, so in total there are currently $.13/lb of increases out there.

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.
