Weekly Analysis:

 In the world market:

World steel market is in waiting mood and worried. Oil price is not likely to decrease. The world is waiting for new data from China and hopes that the announced growth rate of the third quarter will be one percent higher than the estimates. The world is worried about the increase in oil price, which will cause inflation and economic stagnation. For now, we have to wait for the outcome of the war in Gaza and its political reactions. Next week, maybe the political horizon will be brighter.

In the domestic market:
Three factors have affected the market:

First, the government's policy in controlling inflation rate which will continue until the end of the year. Therefor, billet price price would fluctuate at USD 511-538/mt.

Second, the issue of oil export which has been upward from 6 months ago, so the government's hands are not empty of currency.

Third, the removal of Iran's missile sanctions by the United Nations on Wednesday. Although this should be done, it shows serious changes in foreign policy and Iran's role in the world. The process of events after the agreement between Iran and Saudi Arabia is too serious to be analyzed soon. The world has accepted Iran's regional power, but it must also accept Iran's role, which is not too late, as a matter of fact, economic changes will come after that.
