SHFE base metals prices are expected to see rising volatility in the three trading days this week, SMM foresees.

SHANGHAI, Jun. 6 (SMM) - SHFE base metals prices are expected to see rising volatility in the three trading days this week, SMM foresees.

“There will be only three trading days this week due to the Dragon Boat Festival in China. The poor non-farm payrolls in the US weighed down the US dollar significantly, and this will lend support to base metals. Some base metals will face rising volatility due to capital factor” SMM says.
