The prices of leading cities rose to different degrees. In addition, the performance of the screw steel market in holidays was acceptable, so the overall trend is good recently. At present, it has been a month since the resumption of work and production in China. With the accelerated release of terminal demand, the pressure on HRB stock has been greatly relieved, the price of screw steel has a slight upward trend, and the production enthusiasm of steel plants has also been enhanced, which promotes the demand for vanadium alloy to be better.

Compared with that before the holiday, the VN alloy increased by 1000 Yuan/ton slightly, and it is slightly difficult to purchase at 143,000 Yuan/ton in cash.
