SHANGHAI, Feb. 10 (SMM) – LME lead prices stayed at high levels during the Chinese New Year holiday period. LME March-delivery contracts fell by USD 19.8/mt to close at USD 2,545.3/mt dragged by higher interest rate in China and sluggish transactions around the holiday. LME lead inventories keep increasing, and are ample for 114-day consumption now, higher than normal.
