SHANGHAI, Aug. 7 (SMM) – Base metal prices on the SHFE are expected to fluctuate cautiously on Aug. 7, Shanghai Metals Market foresees.  

“The lower-than-expected ADP data has added uncertainties to the result of upcoming US non-farm payroll data, so a strong cautious sentiment will keep prices in check,” SMM says. 

“But, profit-taking by some shorts may give some support to price,” SMM adds.

Aluminum: 11,900-12,000

Lead: 12,800-12,880
