US Ethylene Spot Price Dynamics

Report summary

The spot ethylene market had the perfect set up for a rally over the past 2 months- “the stars were aligned”. Spot ethylene prices set new record highs and at the same time, spot margins based on cheap ethane feedstock set new highs. We investigate why this happened and what events to watch for in the near future.
