Opportunities are Infinite
According to the Metal Bulletin lower grade ore rallied 58 percent fines closing at highest levels, since September 2014. The Chinese steel mill margins are restrained and with the increase in prices in the market the margins may go in negatives. This can result in a poor purchase of iron leading to limitations on price rise. Mills may be diverted to seek alternative low-grade suppliers to reduce costs.
Iron ore mining firms are selling at higher prices where the Chinese imports price of 62 percent ferrous content increased 5 percent and it traded at $82.53 per dry metric tonne, as per the data by Fastmarkets MB. The price of steelmaking raw material increased 13 percent year to date and high-grade Brazilian 65 percent Ferrous content ore gained to $97.60 a tonne.

China’s decline in domestic demand can hit prices
China consumes 70 percent of the seaborne-traded iron and its demand fell in the last year to the lowest, since 2011. In December, the imports were higher but overall flat as per month–on– month basis. The key players in the sector are BHP, Rio Tinto, and Vale that are known for high-grade supplies but their premiums have been falling over the increase in price, which led Chinese buyers to switch to low-grade supplies. The companies are expecting Chinese imports to grow in the coming years. China’s average output declined to the lowest in the last month of 2018 at 2.46 million tonnes and its total production abridged to 76.1 million tonnes.
The trade talks between the US and China can stabilize prices, whereas, a slowdown in the Chinese economy can hinder the growth of related stocks. In the case of iron ore mining firms, the near term fundamentals are average and supplies are plentiful, whereas, demand can increase with the weakness in US-Sino trade agreements.
China is the largest steel buyer and a decline in local demand in the automotive sector and real estate can cause a decline in overall trade. The steel exports from China declined 8.1 percent y-o-y, in 2018, to 69.33 million tons. Lower global demand can further hinder trade, and the imposition of tariffs can restrict further deals. Steel price gained in 2017 by over 30 percent and remained enduring but slowing Chinese economy and production exceeding demand can lead to a decline in prices.
