Base metal prices on the Shanghai Futures Exchange are expected to consolidate at high levels on Friday, SMM predicts.

SHANGHAI, Mar. 4 (SMM) – Base metal prices on the Shanghai Futures Exchange are expected to consolidate at high levels on Friday, SMM predicts.

“Market expectations of additional policy supports from the NPC & CPPCC held during March 3-4 should lend a boost to base metal prices,” said an SMM analyst. “Base metals will continue to diverge, though.”
