In order to promote the steady development of gum rosin industry, gum rosin indexation listed in the Bohai Commodity Exchange (BOCE) on February 23, 2012. It was called electronic plate which brought great change to gum rosin trading mode.
Electronic plate owns an advantage of hedging. That means that consumption enterprises can lock the future production costs nowadays by hedging. Besides, it helps them to ensure their profits while the gum rosin's price becomes more expensive. Relatively speaking, for the production enterprises, they also can sell their goods in the locked price by this platform.
Electronic plate will affect different aspects of process of production around gum rosin like factories, the deep processing, international trading, dealers and downstream enterprises. The detail of these former three parts is as follows.
Factories: Concerning the electronic plate in high attention, Perhaps the spot price is following the electronic plate to rise up, the factories prefer to hold their goods and they have strong willing to push up the price. Except part of factories sell their gum rosin in high price, others keep their gum rosin for expected price in higher level in the future.
The deep processing: The deep processing enterprises hope to avoid the price risk, but it's not really reached their outlook. The deep processing enterprises are not going to stock gum rosin, they may stock it when the price is stably low.
International trading: International trading companies are not interesting in electronic market, because international trading is affected badly by price fluctuations.
CCM draw that electronic plate price affects factories' attitude deeply, owners of factories will unite to push up the price in the way of electronic market. However, the real demand of gum rosin of downstream is weak, so it made the price deviate its demand, the large stock became a dangerous signal.
