From the perspective of positive factors, firstly, in order to welcome the Spring Festival and Winter Olympics, stricter environmental protection policies, and the tight epidemic situation in many places such as Xi'an and Henan have caused some molybdenum production companies to stop production and reduce production, so molybdenum concentrate and ferromolybdenum spot stocks are low, which is conducive to suppliers' quotations; secondly, steel mills worry about the slowdown in logistics and transportation before the Spring Festival. In order to ensure the normal production and operation of enterprises during the Spring Festival, many steel companies implement procurement plans in advance.
