SHANGHAI, Dec.15 (SMM)-

Copper: SHFE copper seems tempted to move upward to 53,000 yuan/mt but pressure exists. Movement today is likely to be in the range of 52,500 and 53,000 yuan/mt today. LME copper, on the other hand, looks set to trade at $6,760-6,810/mt today. In the physical market, spot discount is expected after the futures contract is delivered. Spot discount is expected at 100-60 yuan/mt.

Aluminium: LME aluminium is expected to be rangebound at the 10-day moving average at $2,028-2,065/mt while the main contract on the SHFE is supported by the 5-day moving average, likely trading at 14,280-14,550 yuan/mt. Spot discount will maintain at 130-90 yuan/mt.

Zinc: LME Zinc sees no specific pressure on the technical side but resistance remains at $3,200/mt as it moves upward. LME zinc is expected to be trading at $3,155-3,200/mt today. On the SHFE, more long positions were added following rising prices on the LME. Trading is likely to happen at 25,000-25,450 yuan/mt today.
