Ruida Futures: Shanghai Nickel shock falls short atmosphere continues

October 21 Shanghai nickel main force 1912 shock fell. It is expected that the digestion of the domestic nickel mine supply gap will continue, and at present, the inventory degeneration of nickel mine ports has slowed down. At the same time, the higher nickel price stimulates the willingness of nickel mine suppliers to increase production. Coupled with the rising trend of nickel iron production capacity and import volume in China, to a certain extent, the impact of nickel mine shortage is offset, and nickel prices show a pullback trend. However, at present, the nickel supply gap still exists, and the speed of filling the gap is relatively slow, which partially supports the nickel price. On the spot side, the market trading atmosphere is light, because the supply of negotiable goods is tight, it is difficult for traders to replenish their warehouses at low prices, and downstream in the falling market, most of them are on the sidelines, and then nickel prices continue to probe, and the stimulus for spot trading is limited. Technically, the Shanghai nickel main force 1912 contract daily MACD green column increment, the short-term shock is expected to be weak. In operation, it is suggested that the Shanghai Nickel 1912 contract can be shorted near 127500 yuan / ton with a stop loss of 129000 yuan / ton.

Guoxin Futures: Shanghai Nickel falls again and waits for the callback to stabilize

On Monday, Shanghai nickel and stainless steel weakened sharply. Recently, the resumption of production of overseas nickel mines, sluggish consumption of stainless steel and electric vehicles in the lower reaches, and long exit have made nickel and stainless steel continue to decline. The current price has fallen below the price level before the ban on mining in Indonesia, and there has been an over-fall in technology. In the future, whether from the long-term supply of nickel mines in Indonesia and the Philippines or from the fact that the Philippines has entered the rainy season in the short term, LME nickel stocks are close to a 10-year low. None of the nickel prices have the basis for a further fall. Stainless steel, the recent nickel and iron prices began to rise and the national strike freight overload and other phenomena led to the rise of freight, stainless steel storage cost support, in the current price has lost the state, the future or feedback to the production end ushered in a reduction in production, when the price of stainless steel is expected to rebound. Nickel, stainless steel suggest waiting for this reincarnation after the stable opportunity to do.
