SHANGHAI, May 17 (SMM) – Investors should stay cautious after overnight rises, Shanghai Metals Market foresees. 

“Base metals overnight rose across the board with rising oil and falling dollar, and profit-taking by shorts in some markets also helped push up price gains, but it may become chance for another round of bets by shorts,” SMM says.

Copper: 35,500-35,900 yuan per tonne

Aluminum: 12,300-12,500 yuan per tonne

Lead: 12,850-13,000 yuan per tonne

Zinc: 15,000-15,250 yuan per tonne

Tin: 106,500-109,000 yuan per tonne

Nickel: 68,000-70,000 yuan per tonne
