SHANGHAI, Feb. 6 (SMM) – Spot tin prices surged to RMB 185,500-186,000/mt early last week supported by jumping LME prices and tight supply. However, after LME tin ended its gaining run and other metals prices dropped, and as many downstream businesses already stocked up ahead of the Chinese New Year, tin prices fell to RMB 182,000-184,000/mt on Friday. Supply of the metal has held tight as smelters in Yunnan and Jiangxi etc. still have not fully resumed production with a wait-and-see stance. Production has not turned normal either at downstream, leading to light trading.
