LME copper prices advanced and led price rally among other base metals on Wednesday in order to catch up with price gains in US and China base metal price increases during the holiday. As China’s central bank further tightened liquidity by raising rediscount and reloan rates. In addition, LME nickel prices fell from USD 24,321/mt to USD 23,921/mt due to poor fundamentals.

Closed attention should be paid to released of economic data from the US, and SMM believes that LME nickel prices will move between USD 23,500-24,500/mt on December 30th.
