Global Chemical Update – The Odd (De-)Couple 

Key Points:
  • Butadiene reflects multi-year lows relative to ethylene in most markets. This illustrates the disconnect between the consumable and durable markets.
  • Asia chemical values on avg. rise WoW relative to the US and Europe. This could encourage positive commentary in conferences this week – we do not believe the strength is sustainable.
