LONDON (ICIS)--An initial October European paraxylene (PX) contract was agreed at €1,190/tonne ($1,526/tonne), a rollover from the previous month, one seller said on Thursday.

Following a September that was growing increasingly bullish, one major buyer said earlier this week that it had expected a rollover or something close to it.

Many in the domestic market were taking cues from Asia, where a settlement for October was reached at $1,490/tonne CFR Asia, a somewhat modest increase of $40/tonne compared to earlier nominations by producers seeking $150-200/tonne rises this month.

The contract was agreed on a free delivered (FD) northwest Europe (NWE) basis. Further confirmation from other players is pending.
