SHANGHAI, Jul. 4 (SMM) – LME lead prices fluctuated narrowly between USD 2,645-2,670/mt after opening overnight, affected by China’s weak economic data. During the European trading session, LME lead prices returned an upside track due to the US better-than-expected manufacturing data for June, with prices hitting as high as USD 2,679.8/mt. But LME lead prices fell slightly back at end of the trading, finally closing at USD 2,664.5/mt, down USD 6/mt. SMM expects LME lead prices may fluctuate between USD 2,630-2,680/mt in the short term.
In neighboring markets, the US dollar index finally settled at 74.283.
SMM expects domestic lead spot prices to be between RMB 16,250-16,400/mt on Monday.
