Looking forward to the second quarter, the game between miners and refineries will be more intense, and the progress of subsequent new expansion refineries, labor negotiations, and mine production in the first quarter will be the focus of the game. In addition, the Shanghai-London ratio and the exchange rate will also have an impact on the market. SMM believes that TC $70 / ton is close to the refinery cost line, in the context of smooth labor negotiations, it is expected that the follow-up TC will continue to decline significantly.
