SHANGHAI, Jun. 18 (SMM) –With 98% of the votes counted, exit polls indicated Greece’s New Democracy party was marginally ahead of anti-bailout party, meaning the New Democracy party wins the Greek election, temporarily relieving market concerns over a Greek exit. Besides, although the US consumer confidence index was reported down, market expected this may lay the foundation for the QE3 measures by Fed. In response, the US dollar index moved down, driving LME lead prices to open higher at USD 1,935/mt overnihgt and to close at USD 1,924/mt.
