Nylon Filament Yarn Price Trends
  As nylon chip prices trended up, overall prices of nylon filament had to go up slowly. On the other hand, downstream end-users showed lusterless demand amid off-season, coupled with huge efforts to save energy and emission reduction and tight funds, leading to limited liquidity.
Benzene Price Trends
  Asian benzene fell at week end tracking the retreat in US benzene market. However, it was slightly up on the week. US spot benzene pricing rose week over week, following a spike in prices on Tuesday. Latin American benzene markets tracked USG, higher crude and prices rose week on week, after short-covering in the US Gulf Coast region gave prices a lift earlier in the week.
Polyamide Chips Price Trends
  Nylon chip prices generally trended up on the back of strong movement of upstream raw materials. Besides, low inventory and cut in production by chip makers supported sentiment. However, weaker buying interest stemming from the slow price uptick in yarn sector. Semi-dull and bright conventional chips saw low buying interest and prices remained at high levels on firm cost and low inventory.
Caprolactum Price Trends
  Given strong feedstock and a bit tight supplies, caprolactum prices were strong this week. Sentiment was also stable. Under the combined factors of strong benzene, expectation of tight supply in the short run and low inventory, caprolactum prices were firm. Besides, nylon chip producers also cut run rates, tending to push up the prices.
Naphtha Price Trends
  Asian naphtha markets started to creep in on the back of a widening LPG-naphtha spread, which has already prompted end-users to start buying LPG as an alternative to naphtha as cracker feed. This posed a bearish outlook for naphtha markets. Earlier, naphtha market’s upward momentum since the start of the week could be halted by a widening in the LPG-naphtha spread.
Crude Oil Price Trends
  Crude oil prices reversed early losses climbing over US$1 a barrel at week end, as fighting in Ukraine and worsening relations between Russia and the United States threw fresh fears of supply disruptions in the market. Brent crude also spiked shortly after reports said that European Council leader Herman van Rompuy has written to EU leaders saying any restrictions the bloc agrees on Russian access to sensitive technology should exclude natural gas.
Wool Price Trends
  After a lull over the past two weeks, wool prices improved this week, particularly on Thursday on the Australian wool markets. The EMI picked up Aus cents 8 on the week to close at Aus$10.26. In US$ terms with flat currency, the EMI was also up US cents 8 to US$9.63. The North index gained the most US cents 8 while South was up US cents 7.
Cotton Price Trends
  Cotton futures in New York declined to their lowest in almost five years as a sell-off by speculators, sparked by the prospect of bumper production in the 2014-15 crop year continued. The benchmark December cotton contract on ICE Futures US dropped as low as US cents 64.53 per pound.
