Base metal prices on the SHFE are expected to continue falling on Jul. 24 in response to the tumble in commodity market, Shanghai Metals Market foresees.

SHANGHAI, Jul. 24 (SMM) – Base metal prices on the SHFE are expected to continue falling on Jul. 24 in response to the tumble in commodity market, Shanghai Metals Market foresees.

The commodity sell-off, which sent crude oil price down to a new 4-month low, reflects a strong market pessimism. The precious metal market also plummeted, while the dollar was favored by investors, weighing down base metal prices. 

“SHFE base metal market will remain trapped by weak sentiment today, with eyes on the upcoming China’s HSBC PMI data,” SMM says. 

Copper: 37,800-38,800

Aluminum: 12,250-12,300

Lead: 12,530-12,680

Zinc: 15,000-15,100

Tin: 108,400-110,000

Nickel: 82,500-84,500
