A trader, who received these new levels, commented, “We were expecting declines for all products for July although the producer followed a mix pricing policy. At the moment, overall supply levels are very comfortable in the market and demand is slow. Plus, the global markets are witnessing significant decreases and now the Saudi players here are expecting to see similar pricing policies from the local producers. Regarding business for the end products, we do not hear any expectations of a near term revival. Buyers are currently resisting these levels.”
