Logistics was disrupted on September 22, but the company said production of copper concentrate had not been affected for the time being.

India's Ministry of Commerce and Industry said in a statement that the first anti-dumping sunset review of 304 series stainless steel hot rolled plates originating or imported from China, South Korea and Malaysia was filed. China's Castle Peak was one of the main forces behind the record decline in nickel stocks on the London Metal Exchange last week, according to people familiar with the matter. Concerns about the shortage of domestic nickel mine supply remain, while nickel mine port stocks show a downward trend, supporting nickel prices, but Philippine nickel mine imports have increased, and nickel-iron imports have increased to a certain extent, offsetting the impact of nickel mine shortage to a certain extent. At the same time, downward pressure on the global economy still exists, demand for stainless steel downstream is weak, and resistance above nickel prices is obvious. no, no.

As soon as the production limit in Daqing came to an end, Tangshan City came out of the stage in October to strengthen the control of air pollution, requiring Class C sintering, pellet equipment, lime kilns and blast furnaces to stop production by more than 50% (including). If implemented in accordance with the document, it will affect the average daily hot metal production of 170300 tons, which is basically consistent with the expected production restriction policy issued on the eve of the National Day, but will be 60800 tons more than the average daily hot metal output in September. However, the impact of Daqing environmental protection has gradually dissipated, and the supply side is still dominated by smooth recovery.

The spot market generally maintained a stable shipment, and the transaction situation was improving. Economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region will slow to 5.8% in 2019 from 6.3% last year due to uncertainty caused by trade tensions, according to a report released by the World Bank today. The report highlights the weakness and increased uncertainty in global demand, which has led to a decline in export and investment growth, and notes that increased trade tensions pose a long-term threat to regional growth. Sino-US trade negotiations kicked off today. China's stainless steel exports to the United States are about 100000 tons, compared with China's 4 million tons of exports, the volume is relatively small, so the direct impact of trade friction on China's stainless steel is relatively small.

Crude oil rose nearly 1.2% in the previous period. Recently, foreign conflicts have had a great impact on crude oil, but the trend of domestic crude oil is still strong. The Ecuadorian government fled the capital Quito on Tuesday in response to protests following President Lenin Moreno's decision to remove subsidies, which led to a sharp rise in fuel prices. Protesters have occupied some oil facilities, and (Petroecuador), Ecuador's state oil company, has warned that if the unrest continues, losses could reach 165000 barrels a day-nearly 1/3 of production. Ecuador announced earlier this month that it would withdraw from OPEC on January 1, 2020, as the government was looking for ways to increase revenue. In addition, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey had launched a military operation against Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria, adding that the purpose of the attack was to destroy a "corridor of terror" along the Turkish border. Analysts say the attacks could affect the economy of Iraq's oil-producing region of Kurdistan and push up energy prices. Us President Donald Trump said Turkish military action in Syria was "a bad idea" and did not have the support of the US government before oil prices fell. Jim Ritterbusch, president of Ritterbusch and Associates, an oil trading consultancy, said higher-than-expected growth in US crude oil inventories further underpinned concerns about weak oil demand, with refineries falling more seasonally than analysts had generally expected.
