SHFE 1602 lead will outperform LME lead next week and should test support from 12,700 yuan per tonne with resistance at the 5 and 10-day moving averages.

Spot lead should trace SHFE lead down slightly to 12,950-13,150 yuan per tonne next week. Supply tightness will not be fully eased next week. Downstream lead-acid battery makers will likely cut purchase late December due to cash shortage and falling production, reducing demand.
