Logic: in the medium term, the certainty of the continuation of the high level of domestic zinc supply is strong, and the seasonal weakness of consumption is prominent. This week, the domestic zinc ingot social inventory began to rise slightly, and the inventory is expected to accumulate further in the later period. At present, the Shanghai zinc futures price maintains the small BACK structure, and the LME zinc futures price changes to the Contango structure again. The expectation that the zinc fundamental is weak is maintained, and the short-term zinc market capital is on the cautious side. Therefore, although the macro level has stabilized in the near future, it may be difficult to change the weak pattern of zinc prices in the medium term.
Operation advice: empty single holding; buy copper and sell zinc.
Risk factors: macro mood changes significantly, domestic zinc supply is not as expected.
