PP raffia, fiber, and injection was listed at $1,540-$1,600/mt FCA Aliaga, up $20.
LDPE was listed at $1,605-$1,625/mt, up $20.

PVC K67 prices were listed at $1,260/mt, up $25.
For PP, the market consensus was in an upward trend in the light of stronger European and Asian markets for olefins and polymers, the US storm effect, and resulting reduced quota to Turkey from Middle Eastern sellers who prefer better netbacks in China, a market source said last week.
