Price Review & Forecast 08:54:14AM Oct 21, 2013 Source:SMM

SHANGHAI, Oct. 21 (SMM) – SHFE 1312 lead contract price, boosted by the soaring LME lead overnight, opened higher at RMB 14,350/mt last Friday. Later, as China’s Q3 GDP reportedly grew at annual rate of 7.8%, better than the 7.5% in Q2, SHFE lead for December delivery broke above RMB 14,000/mt driven by stronger buying support and move between RMB 14,380-14,420/mt, outperforming LME lead. In the afternoon trading session, however, risk aversion loomed in the market, dampening trading, with the most active SHFE lead contract closing the week at RMB 14,395/mt, up RMB 115/mt from Thursday. Trading volumes added 312 lots to 1,392 lots, and positions grew to an all-time high of 10,042 lots, up 496 lots. Investors remained bullish to SHFE lead.  

 
Quotations for spot lead in Shanghai varied largely. Quote for Jinsha was RMB 14,300/mt, a contango of RMB 100/mt against the most active SHFE lead contract price, with no transactions reported in the morning. Yunyue and Hanjiang were offered at RMB 14,230/mt and RMB 14,200/mt, respectively. Prices for Humon and Shenqian were between RMB 14,130-14,140/mt. Deals for deliverable goods were hardly made as traders purchased a considerable amount of such resources in the past two days. Most transactions were done at low prices.
