September LLDPE futures, which are the most actively traded contracts on the Dalian Commodity Exchange (DCE), closed at yuan (CNY) 9,355/tonne ($1,469/tonne) on 5 June, up by CNY5/tonne from the settlement price of CNY9,350/tonne on 4 June.
Around 1.5m tonnes of LLDPE, or 597,734 contracts, for delivery in September were traded on Friday, according to DCE.
“The market outlook is still unclear amid the current prevailing bearish sentiment,” said a Shanghai-based broker.
He described the slight increase in Tuesday's prices as a "notional correction" after heavy falls in previous trading sessions.
