Base metal prices on the SHFE are expected to get some relief from a falling dollar on Nov. 12, Shanghai Metals Market foresees.

SHANGHAI, Nov. 12 (SMM) – Base metal prices on the SHFE are expected to get some relief from a falling dollar on Nov. 12, Shanghai Metals Market foresees. 

“The drop in dollar overnight is expected to lend some support to Shanghai prices during Asian trading hours today, but will likely fall again in night trading as the green back is estimated to rise,” SMM says. 

In SHFE zinc and nickel market, positions are on the rise, and most new comers are the shorts, SMM adds. 

In the neighboring market, crude oil prices are expected to be weak, and this will also put a drag on base metal prices today.
