DALIAN. Prices on the Chinese pumpkin seed market continue to decline for various reasons. Speculators are now trying to sell their goods as quickly as possible.

Weak demand

On the Chinese pumpkin seed market, prices for both shine skins and GWS kernels are continuing to fall slowly but steadily. There are various reasons for this. Firstly, demand in both the domestic and export markets is so low that most suppliers have no more orders to process in May and June. They are therefore trying to offer low prices in order to keep production going. In addition, speculators' stocks are still very high and some of them are prepared to sell their goods as soon as possible as they have no confidence in the future market.
