Per the Plastics Exchange - 'Polyethylene demand was good from both the processor and reseller sectors. Polypropylene buyers were mostly just out looking for special deals and they seemed patient. Spot resin prices were firmer; Polyethylene saw gains of $.005-.015/lb depending on grade. Polypropylene prices were mixed; Generic Prime gained a penny, while export and offgrade prices were pressured.' See update here.
Not much new to review per the Plastics Exchange - 'This past week, shortened by the US Independence holiday, ushered in the 3rd quarter, but spot resin market activity was slow to begin as many market participants took off for their summer vacation.' PE prices held firm, resisting processor's desires for some relief. PP prices firmed some as well after seeing a $0.10/lb decrease in the 2nd quarter. See update here.
