The domestic performance is relatively strong. on the one hand, the environmental protection "looking back" work carried out by the Central Environmental Protection Inspection Group has had a certain impact on some metal supply ends, stimulating the rise in the prices of related metals. On the other hand, the people's Bank of China announced that it would launch a one-year MLF operation of 463 billion yuan, giving relatively loose liquidity to bulls to enter the market, in line with anecdotal rumors that the official draft of the self-owned power plant rectification plan will be released this month.
