Do not know the rules of the game of iron ore supply and price game, and do not spend time and energy to study these rules of the game, waiting for China’s steel enterprises will only be damaged interests. Bright seamless steel pipe price production fell continuously, which is the performance of steel mills to save energy and reduce production, but the current steel market industry is still in the doldrums, the downstream industrial steel demand still can not keep up with the supply and demand contradictions topic still exists.
The current fundamental situation of the steel industry is still not optimistic.
