Dalian: In the past two weeks, market sales have been slow, but the price of pumpkin seeds has risen instead of falling. In particular, the price of pumpkin seeds has increased beyond market expectations. Market participants reflected that the rise in prices was related to the speculation and hoarding by grain merchants in the market. Some traders also reported that the planting area in the new season has decreased, and the shortage of raw materials has caused prices to rise. Although the weather is getting warmer, traders are not in a hurry to clear their inventories at the moment and start to wait and see how the market changes. Good news for exporters if prices remain high. In addition, European and American sea freight stopped falling. Exports are subject to change. Exporters want to reduce procurement costs and improve the market. Pay close attention to market changes.
