On the nickel side, Shanghai nickel has fallen continuously in recent days, but it has been below hovering since the start of trading this morning, and there is no continuing downward trend for the time being. Huatai Futures said that in the market, most of the short-term benefits of Indonesia's mining ban have been digested by prices, and if supplies from other major nickel producers (the Philippines and Singapore) do not change much in the fourth quarter, there may not be enough incentive to continue to rise in nickel prices for the time being. At present, the nickel negative is still limited, nickel price may have some support, lack of power. The factors that break the shock pattern are the supply changes in other major nickel producing countries (upward) or the significant reduction in production of 300 series stainless steel (downward). Recently, the progress of Indonesian nickel and iron production has accelerated, the production of traditional nickel enterprises has increased month-on-month, the output of 300 series stainless steel has declined slightly, the main LME nickel bulls have closed their positions through delivery, and the short-term nickel price may have the risk of adjustment.

In terms of copper production, copper production in the third quarter was higher than in the second quarter as a result of the increase in production at the Lumwana copper mine in Zambia.
