Zinc, recently Shanghai zinc main force 1911 contract low open shock, continue low consolidation. During the period, the main part was weighed down by the strong performance of the dollar index, while the World Bank lowered its economic growth forecast for 2019, and the macro side remained relatively short. On the other hand, the market pays attention to the process of Sino-US trade consultation, and there is still uncertainty.

Shanghai zinc shock consolidation. After the festival, the upstream and downstream of the north have entered a stage of gradual recovery, and in the short term, the financial attribute of the zinc market is still greater than that of the industry.

On the supply side, Australia Mining has an overhaul plan in October, and shipments are expected to rise significantly, while Brazilian shipments are limited, and port stocks are expected to recover quickly for a short time, but it is necessary to pay attention to the decline in overseas hot metal demand and the amount transferred to China; overall, iron ore is expected to continue to rebound after the festival, and pay attention to the impact of timber prices in the later stage.

Coke disk grinding bottom, waiting to stabilize.

Crude oil rose nearly 2.8% in the previous period. It is understood that the international community needs to pay attention to the development of the situation in Ecuador in recent days. Platts energy analysts say Ecuador is at risk of 1/3 production disruptions, of which the biggest victims are refineries on the west coast of the United States, which are already facing severe shortages of heavy crude oil. Ecuador's state oil company, Petroamazonas, estimated on Tuesday that it could lose about 165000 barrels a day, or 1/3 barrels, of crude oil production as a result of "insecurity" in its oil fields as a result of anti-austerity protests, the Ministry of Energy said on Tuesday. Ecuador's heavy crude oil is seen as an important substitute for heavy crude oil after US sanctions against Iran and Venezuela. In fact, the U. S. API data released in the early hours of recent crude oil stocks increased, but gasoline and refining depots significantly reduced. The possibility of supply shortages has been exacerbated by the recent risk of production disruptions in Iraq and the lack of spare production in Saudi Arabia. The (EIA) of the United States Energy Information Agency will release the official weekly report on crude oil stocks at 22:30 this evening.
