Weekly Analysis:

In global markets, China demand is helping prices, while oil has a stable trend. Concerns about a global recession have made everyone cautious. It seems that everything depends on China market, which is uncertain due to the threat of covid-19 surging cases.

Domestic market is facing with raw material supply issues, on the one hand, DRI supply suspension and reduction of billet production, on the other hand, authorities price control policies. Experience has shown that confrontation between these two will show its effects on the exchange rate. Regardless of whether DRI is supplied or not, Iran steel market will look more carefully at curency market.
