Copper: today, Yapanlun Copper opened at US $5815 / ton, and its center of gravity shifted slightly after the opening. The initial probe was down US $5801.5 / ton, and it was close to US $5800 / ton. After a short-term drop, the domestic trade data for May showed a good domestic trade environment. Confidence was boosted and the dollar hovered low. Copper prices pulled up in a straight line, up $5838 a tonne, and then kept their centre of gravity at a high of $5829 a tonne until they reached European trading, and copper prices tried to explore again. Due to the obvious low recovery of the US dollar, Lun Copper was blocked and the upward force was insufficient, which quickly fell back to US $5815 per ton and rebounded after a short-term probe. At 17-30, bronze was up 29 cents, or 0.50 percent, at $5816.5 a tonne, with the dollar index at 96.845 and crude oil at $54.03 a barrel. The weak performance of the evening economic data is expected to continue to put off the current pressure on copper prices. At present, the 10-day moving average (EMA) on the sun receiving entity of Luntong has not been achieved. The double line of MACD index forms a positive upward crossing in the low position, the green column initially turns red, and there is a certain degree of benefit on the technical side. Wait for guidance from the dollar and crude oil at night to test whether the copper can break through $5840 a tonne at night. Today, the main contract of Shanghai Copper opened at 46130 yuan per ton in the morning, and after the opening of trading, the trading level fell to the lowest of 46050 yuan per ton in the day, and then the short position withdrew from the market, and the market quickly pulled up, rising to an intraday high of 46330 yuan per ton after a small concussion at 46220 yuan per ton. And in the high small consolidation, afternoon trading slightly down to 46230 yuan / ton, and then the center of gravity continued to move up, and in 46230 between 46320 yuan / ton shock finishing, the end of the day closed at 46250 yuan / ton, up 200 yuan / ton, up 0.43 per cent. Today, Shanghai Copper 1907 contract position decreased by 2312 hands to 209000 hands, while trading volume decreased by 70, 000 hands to 57000 hands. Shanghai Copper 1908 contract today increased its position by 7726 hands to 208000 hands. Shanghai Copper 1907 and 1908 contract positions are close to each other, with a gap of only about 1000 hands. Pay attention to the monthly change of the main contract. The Shanghai Copper Index rose 1964 hands to 617000 today, while trading volume fell 177000 hands to 182000. Affected by the expected US interest rate cut and the weak US economic data before the festival, copper prices fell below the 46000 yuan / ton mark, falling to the lowest level since 2019. Today, short sellers relatively recognized the low copper prices, and the positions were cut and left the market obviously. The overall market price rose slightly. However, due to the strong global risk aversion caused by the trade war, the macroeconomic gap limits the upward space for non-ferrous metals, and there is still some pressure on the strength of copper prices. The technical KDJ indicators are cross-positive, which slightly supports the copper price. In the evening, waiting for the guidance of the outside market, test whether Shanghai copper can stand firm and break through 46300 yuan / ton. Today, the spot price of electrolytic copper in Shanghai is quoted for 90 to 170 yuan per ton of water, 46160 yuan to 46340 yuan per ton of copper for flat water and 46220 yuan to 46400 yuan per ton for copper in water. Shanghai copper lows rebounded slightly to 46200 yuan / ton line. On the first day after the festival, it was heard that imported copper had arrived in the warehouse, and in the morning, the holder continued the pace of quotation before the festival, and the quotation increased by 110 yuan to 170 yuan per ton, but there were many quotations in the market, but there was not enough interest in buying, and the holders' willingness to cash in gradually became stronger, and the price space was magnified. The price of good copper from 170 yuan / ton to 140 yuan / ton is reduced to 140 yuan / ton, and the quotation from 110 yuan / ton is reduced to less than 100 yuan / ton before there is centralized trading. Wait and see downstream, wet copper quoted water 20 to 40 yuan / ton and there is still room for pressure. The main reason is that inventory increases, market consumption is weak, market risk aversion vigilance is still high, the market is difficult to quickly digest imported copper, rising water may still have room for downward adjustment. In the afternoon, the center of gravity of copper in Shanghai continued to move up, and there were differences in the performance of the holders. Some of them were eager to cash in when the plate was high, but the high-quality large enterprises had no intention of eagerly selling the goods and still remained unmoved by the price range in the morning. In the afternoon, copper water 80 to 90 yuan / ton, good copper water 130 to 150 yuan / ton, transaction range slightly raised to 46300 to 46420 yuan / ton.

Aluminum: Lun Aluminum opened at US $1760 / ton in the morning. It fluctuated in a narrow range around US $1762 / ton in the early part of the Asian session. The shock at the end of the day fell to the lowest level in the day of US $1752.5 / ton, refreshing the low level since January 2017. the trend is relatively weak. After entering the European trading session, Lun Aluminum was blocked in its upward exploration along the 5-day moving average, with the highest reaching only around US $1762 per tonne. By 18:05, Lun Aluminum had softened slightly from its high to close at US $1758 per ton, up US $4 per ton. Rose 0.2%, recorded a small negative line, the day K line is below all the EMA, short position increase today, the day KDJ third line continues to fall. The macro atmosphere is still not good in the near future, and the cost of overseas aluminum alumina is not expected to change, aluminum prices continue to fall to refresh the lowest level in two years, and is expected to maintain a weak posture in the evening.

The 1907 contract of Shanghai Aluminum main Company opened at 13950 yuan / ton in the morning, and recorded a cross star at the beginning of trading, the lowest point in a day of 13915 yuan / ton, refreshing the lowest price since May 7. relying on the lower 5-day moving average, it rose slightly to 13975 yuan / ton with a narrow range of concussion. The highest position only briefly touched 13990 yuan / ton, and the trend within the day was not strong. In the afternoon, it changed its wandering attitude and began to fall below the daily moving average. Although it stopped at a low of 13930 yuan / ton, it finally closed at a low point of 13940 yuan / ton, down 70 yuan / ton. The trading volume decreased by 33676 hands to 98272 hands, and the position decreased by 522 hands to 218000 hands, closing at the Xiaoyin line. At this point, the K line fell completely below all EMA, and the lower shadow line touched the lower track of Brin Channel, and the Daily MACD Green Line lengthened. KDJ, three lines down. In terms of intra-day macro data, although exports were better than expected in May, there were some export leads, and there were no obvious signs of a boost in aluminum prices. We were concerned about the changes in long short positions in the evening and the impact of the market atmosphere. Given the bearish expectations of consumption after June, aluminium prices are unlikely to recover sharply in the evening.

The opening of aluminum trading in the current month was dominated by interval concussion. The spot trading price in Shanghai was between 14000 and 14020 yuan / ton, and the flat water on the plate was up 20 yuan / ton, which was about 30 yuan / ton lower than that before the festival. The Wuxi transaction price was between 14000 and 14020 yuan / ton. The transaction price in Hangzhou is between 14020 and 14040 yuan per ton. Today, there is an adequate supply of goods in the market, and traders are more active in shipping. Some traders take into account the fact that the supply may be expanded at a later stage, the willingness to receive goods has also been significantly increased, and the overall trading is active. As prices continue to decline, downstream manufacturers began to wait and see, although there is a certain replenishment after the festival, receiving goods is OK, but the purchasing strength is obviously not as good as before the festival. Today, the overall transaction in East China is better. Afternoon aluminum shock leakage, a small number of transactions between market traders concentrated in 13990 between 14010 yuan / ton, the market trading atmosphere has become light, the transaction is rare.

Lead: within a day, Lun lead opened at US $1845 / tonne. In the Asian session, Lun lead consolidated along the US $1848 / ton line and entered the European session. Encouraged by the strong trend of internal trading, Lun lead once climbed to US $1866 / ton. However, it was difficult to break through the 40-day moving average above, and the pressure on Lun lead fell back to US $1858 / tonne platform concussion. As of 16-54, Lun lead temporarily closed at US $1858 / tonne, up US $17.50 / ton, or 0.95 per cent. Lun lead temporarily closed the Xiaoyang line and ran near the middle rail of Brin Road. Although the LME lead 0-3 liter sticker was of back structure, the water rise was narrowed, and the LME lead inventory increased by nearly 800t, which at one point suppressed the confidence of the market to continue to be long. If the US finger continues to be strong at night, the lead may run within the range formed by the 10-or 40-day moving average.

Within a day, the main 1907 contract for lead in Shanghai was opened at 16015 yuan / ton. At the beginning of the plate, Shanghai lead ran along the 16075 yuan / ton line, and later, stimulated by the news that more than 2,000 tons were affected by the maintenance of electrolytic lead refineries, some bulls tried to pull up the lead price. The lead price shock platform moved up to around 16195 yuan / ton, hitting 16275 yuan / ton during the period, and finally closed at 16220 yuan / ton, up 155yuan / ton, an increase of 0.96%, and the position was reduced by 16195 hands to 46078 hands. Shanghai lead reported long foot Zhongyang line, the 5-day EMA turned upward, and with the 10-day EMA to form a golden fork, but the above 40-day EMA suppression still exists, pay attention to whether Shanghai lead can break through the suppression platform at night.

Changxing market copper crown 16210 yuan / ton, 1906 contract water 30 yuan / ton quotation. In the early stage, due to the brief opening of the import ratio, a small amount of imported refined lead flowed into the Shanghai market, Harbin lead reported 16065 yuan / ton, and the discount to the 1906 contract was 115yuan / ton. Futures fast upward, holders actively shipment, and downstream market consumption is depressed, some storage enterprises wait and see carefully, bulk single market transactions are few.

Guangdong market Nanhua lead 16215 yuan / ton, the average price of SMM1# lead rose 40 yuan / ton; lead price shock higher, but storage enterprises are still mainly wait-and-see, the market transaction is light. Henan Yuguang and other smelters mainly to long single transaction; Jinli, Wanyang 16175 to 16205 yuan / ton, the average price of SMM1# lead to 30 yuan / ton quoted price; lead price shock is strong, rigid demand replenishment of enterprises, market trading is general.

In the run-up to European trading, the US dollar accelerated to recover, and the support of the daily moving average was detected in a straight line, and then rose again to US $2510 per tonne. However, the suppression of the 10-day moving average appeared, and the pressure on Len Zinc fell all the way down to US $2478.5 per ton. After a little repair, just as LME zinc stocks recorded a small increase, zinc prices fell again, closing down $2480, or 0.2 per cent, at $2480, or 0.2 per cent, at 16-22. Zinc in Geneva recorded two consecutive negatives, and LME zinc stocks increased by 875 tons, an increase of 0.87 percent, resulting in a certain degree of pressure on zinc prices. However, in the case of a sharp increase in write-off warehouse receipts in the previous period, the market still has expectations for a subsequent reduction in zinc stocks. It is expected that there will be no deep fall at night, and it may run in the 5-10-day EMA channel as a whole.

During the day, the social inventory of Shanghai, Guangdong and Tianjin recorded a small increase, but the consumption has not improved significantly, the action on Shanghai zinc is still to be considered, and it is expected that Shanghai zinc will run near the 20-day moving average at night.

Shengtianshui quotation from the discount 30-discount 20 yuan / ton under the expansion to discount 50-discount 40 yuan / ton transaction is still weak, the receiver looks at the weak rising water waiting mood is stronger. After entering the second trading period, after the cost is determined, the trader further adjusts the price to the discount 60-50 yuan / ton. Due to the arrival of delivery, the spot transfer is relatively appropriate, and some of the consignors actively receive the goods at a low price to stimulate part of the transaction.
