Liansu futures market rose significantly during the week, which brought some support to the spot market. In addition, the Mid Autumn Festival holiday is coming soon, and the downstream is preparing goods before the festival, so the enthusiasm for entering the market is better. However, the international crude oil price is weak, the market resource consumption is slow during the Mid Autumn Festival holiday, and the inventory pressure may increase, which will bring some restraint to the rising market. It is expected that the rising space of the PE spot market will be limited in China in the short term, or mainly consolidation.
