The article looks at the condition of the global chemical markets. Ethylene is still finely balanced in Europe, and prices remained high and unchanged. The propylene downturn is gathering momentum in Europe, and pricing is dependent on delivery time. Higher crude prices boosted spot toluene prices in Asia. Styrene prices were firming in Europe, with bids and offers at $1,315-1,340/ton for November.
