Copper prices have been declining under the influence of negative macro factors, and rose slightly today. However, in view of the continued pressure on the macro surface and the fact that terminal consumption is not ideal, copper prices are on the short side in the long run, but the short-term supply side still exists. There is a certain degree of support for the price of copper. Global copper production fell 1.8 per cent between January and February this year, with declines in Chile and Indonesia offsetting growth in other countries, according to the latest figures released by (ICSG), an international copper research group. But there was a global copper glut of 40,000 tons over the same period. Global refined copper production from January to February this year was the same as in the previous period. The apparent consumption of refined copper from January to February this year was also flat. China's apparent consumption has increased by 4%, and India has also seen an increase. But demand from Japan, the European Union and the United States all fell.

SMM tracking data show that a total of 97 ships arrived at China's ports from 5.26 to 6.1, with an estimated arrival volume of 14.25 million tons, an increase of 3.145 million tons over the previous period. During the period, exports from Australia are expected to increase by 1.43 million tons to 15.69 million tons, while those from Brazil are expected to increase by 960000 tons to 6.98 million tons. The arrival of iron ore in Hong Kong and Australia and Brazil have shown a significant rebound, the subsequent decline in port stocks may be expected to narrow. Steel, affected by the weather, short-term demand for building materials has fallen, high supply, inventory to slow down, the current downstream demand is still strong, short-term or volatile trend.

Crude oil fell 3.76%, and the president of the Vido Group said OPEC+ would extend the production reduction agreement into the second half of the year because of market uncertainty. Saudi Arabia's oil production hit an all-time high last month, according to the latest data released by foreign media, largely filling the supply gap caused by tougher US sanctions against Iran.
