SHANGHAI, May 14 (SMM) – SHFE lead prices opened at RMB 15,650/mt Friday and rose to RMB 15,680/mt briefly influenced by China’s slower CPI growth for April. Later, SHFE lead prices fell to RMB 15,555/mt due to a lack of upward momentum and falling domestic stocks, to finally close at RMB 15,600/mt, down RMB 50/mt.
