SHANGHAI, Mar 27 (SMM) – Spot nickel trades in Shanghai remained poor on Wednesday morning as higher prices of futures and the upcoming tax cuts sidelined downstream buyers.

Premiums of Jinchuan materials came in at 3,200-3,400 yuan/mt, lower than 3,000-3,100 yuan/mt in the previous morning.

Jinchuan offered cargoes at 104,200 yuan/mt ex-factory this morning, up 1,000 yuan/mt from Tuesday.

Spot nickel deals were mostly heard at 103,800-104,400 yuan/mt in Shanghai on Wednesday morning.
