SMM10 14: today's non-ferrous metals market green manure red, the end of the day close, non-ferrous metal mutual ups and downs. Shanghai copper rose 0.11%; Shanghai aluminum fell 0.69%; Shanghai zinc fell 0.32%; Shanghai lead flat; Shanghai nickel fell 0.01%; Shanghai tin rose 0.61%.

In terms of copper, China imported 445000 tons of unwrought copper and copper products in September, up 10.1% from a month earlier, but still showed a downward trend, down 14.6% from a year earlier, according to data released by the General Administration of Customs on Monday. From January to September, China imported 3.539 million tons of unwrought copper and copper, down 11.3 per cent from a year earlier. Imports of unwrought copper and copper in September hit a new high since February, mainly because imports of copper improved in August and were mostly profitable, stimulating imports of electrolytic copper. In unwrought copper and copper, refined copper accounted for 70%, so the profit window opened to promote the improvement of refined copper imports, but also led to an increase in unwrought copper and copper imports. But the overall pressure on imports of copper this year remains the same theme. Imports of unwrought copper and copper still fell 11.3 per cent in the first nine months of the year compared with the same period a year earlier. SMM has also repeatedly analyzed the main reasons for the decline in copper imports this year. The problem of underconsumption has led to the need for domestic markets to import copper to fill the gap, so imports of copper are still under a lot of pressure. "[SMM analysis] imports of unwrought copper and copper products increased by 10.1 per cent in September compared with the previous month, but were still down 11.3 per cent from the same period last year.

Aluminum, the China Automobile Association recently released data in September new energy vehicle sales in September 80,000 year-on-year decline continued to expand to 34.2%. As an important downstream consumption of aluminum, the car industry has a great influence on the aluminum and aluminum alloy market. In September this year, cars entered the traditional "Golden Nine and Silver 10" sales season. From the completion of production and sales data in September this year, compared with the previous month, it showed a marked recovery, and the decline in industry sales was also narrower than that of the previous month, but the decline was still relatively large, continuing the downward trend since July last year. China's automobile production and sales have declined for 15 consecutive months compared with the same period last year, of which new energy vehicles have also declined for three months in a row. Consumption momentum is still in a state of inadequacy. From the perspective of passenger models, all models showed a decline this month compared with the same period last year, and the pressure faced by enterprises did not improve effectively; commercial vehicles were relatively good, and production and sales showed positive growth this month. Chen Shihua, assistant secretary general of the China Automobile Association, said that the recovery rate and speed of the automobile industry did not meet expectations, and the retreating slope of new energy vehicle subsidies had a greater impact on the industry, and it had declined for three consecutive months compared with the same period last year. There is a big gap between the expected goal and the actual achievement, and it is full of difficulties to achieve the goal.

On the zinc side, Ruida Futures said that Shanghai zinc rushed higher and fell back to the macro boost. On October 14, the Shanghai zinc main force 1912 contract rushes down, hits nearly one since the high, but the upstream power is limited. During the period, it was mainly boosted by the progress of Sino-US trade consultations over the weekend and the improvement of the macro atmosphere. However, the inventory trend of the two markets is divided, showing a state of external reduction and internal increase, and the growth of stocks in Shanghai will limit the rebound power of zinc prices. In addition, the suspension of the decline in the dollar index also put pressure on zinc prices. On the spot, the market transaction is few, the transaction mood is depressed, the trader market transaction is relatively light.

Black, iron ore down 2.37%; thread down 1.32%; stainless steel up 0.13%; thread down 1.32%; hot coil down 0.77%; coke down 2.70%; coking coal down 1.16%. According to the latest data released by the General Administration of Customs today, China exported 5.33 million tons of steel in September 2019, an increase of 324000 tons over the previous month, down 10.42 percent from the same period last year. In the first three quarters, China exported 50.305 million tons of steel, down 5 percent from the same period last year. In September, China imported 1.113 million tons of steel, an increase of 139000 tons over the previous month, down 75600 tons from the same period last year, and 8.751 million tons of steel imported in the third quarter, down 12.2 percent from the same period last year. Due to the decline of domestic steel prices in August and the continued depreciation of the RMB exchange rate, the gap between the RMB exchange rate and the international price gap has led to an increase in the willingness of some enterprises to export, to a certain extent, affecting the signing of export orders in September. On the other hand, transportation costs in some areas have risen recently as a result of traffic accidents in Wuxi. "[SMM topic] Wuxi Bridge collapse accident has a serious impact on the Steel Transportation Market and New regulations have been issued around the country.

Crude oil rose 3.45% in the last period. It is understood that Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Saudi Arabia on Monday for the first time in more than a decade, hoping to take the opportunity to strengthen relations with competitors in the Middle East and cooperation in energy policy. Mr. Putin, accompanied by the Russian energy minister and the chairman of the Russian Wealth Fund, will meet with King Salman of Saudi Arabia and Crown Prince Ben Salman Al-Saud, the de facto leader of Saudi Arabia. As a former rival in the oil market, Russia, a non-OPEC oil producer, has joined a production reduction agreement advocated by Saudi Arabia, the leader of the OPEC, forming the OPEC+ to jointly support oil prices, which is also enough to show that relations between the two countries are strengthening. Asked if he was worried that Saudi Arabia was suspected of fawning on Russia, Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs, said he did not think it was contradictory. "We do not believe that close relations with Russia will have a negative impact on our relations with the United States," he said on Sunday. "We believe that while developing relations with Russia, we can maintain strategic ties with the United States." During his meeting with Saudi leaders, Mr Putin will discuss the OPEC+ agreement, which provides for co-operation to cut production by 1.2 million barrels a day from January.
