During the given week, PPGI prices have moved on a stable trend. Some PPGI producers have implemented production cuts, providing a certain degree of support for PPGI prices. However, market players are cautious on the prospects for the PPGI market in the traditional peak season of September as declines in iron ore prices will weaken support for PPGI prices. It is thought that PPGI prices in the Chinese domestic market will likely move sideways in the coming week.
