Tin was unexpectedly favored by short, up 1.1 per cent a week, but the spot discount expanded, with SMMI.Sn up 0.87 per cent a week. Copper interval concussion pattern, copper disk surface washed back down, water first promoted and then suppressed, SMMI.Cu rose 0.64% in the week. There was no bright spot on the aluminum disk, but the discount was stable under the sharp drop in spot inventories, and transactions were acceptable, especially when buying at low prices, which supported prices, and SMMI.Al rose 0.14 percent in the week. Zinc, which is very different from lead during the week, is not led by the rise in lead. on the contrary, due to the impact of imported zinc and the fragility of the disk, the spot discount is falling day by day, and SMMI.Zn is down 0.29 per cent per week. SMMI rose 0.9% during the week, lead and nickel are likely to remain strong next week, and the volatility characteristics of the rest of the metal range remain unchanged.

Copper: this week Lun copper as a whole still maintains the interval concussion pattern, the amplitude expands. The news of the Sino-US settlement boosted investor confidence at the beginning of the week, and the eurozone economic data were lower than expected. the dollar closed negative and copper closed positive for the second day in a row, climbing to an intraweek high of $6999 a tonne. The high led to profit-taking, coupled with a sharp rise in the dollar and pressure to return to the 94-point mark, sending copper down 1.84 per cent in a single day to a low of $6805 a tonne, slowly recovering to a range of $6,850-$6,900 after being supported by integer levels. At present, it is trapped in the 5-day moving average, the lower moving average group is staggered, and the MACD is pierced.
