SHANGHAI, Sept. 8 (SMM) – SHFE 1511 lead immediately dropped to RMB 13,250/mt after opening Monday evening session at RMB 13,315/mt. Then the contract grew to RMB13,280-13,300/mt, contributed by rising longs and finally ended at RMB 13,320/mt, losing RMB 20/mt.

Those factors are behind the sharp fall in SHFE lead prices.
