SMM, Oct. 30, this morning, the non-ferrous metals market rose and fell, including by noon, Shanghai aluminum rose 0.47%, Shanghai copper, Shanghai lead rose slightly, Shanghai zinc fell 0.31%.

In terms of copper, the monthly prosperity index of the copper industry rose month-on-month in September, while the monthly prosperity index of the medium-color copper industry was 26.6, up 0.6 points from the previous month. The monitoring results of the monthly prosperity index of the medium-color copper industry show that the prosperity index of the copper industry is running along the "normal" range. Taken together, although the copper industry sentiment index picked up slightly this month, but the supply of refined copper increased, and copper consumption power is insufficient. Affected by this, the pressure of industrial operation still exists. It is expected that the future copper industry boom index will still be in the "normal" range of low operation.

On the aluminum side, exports of aluminum plates and strips expanded in September on a month-on-month basis. Customs data show that in September 2019, China exported a total of 197100 tons of aluminum plate and strip products, down 9.7 percent from the previous month and 202 percent from the same period last year. From January to September this year, China's aluminum plate and strip exports totaled 2.01 million tons, down 3 percent from the same period last year.

On the nickel side, the global penetration rate of electric cars is expected to reach 10-12.5% by 2025, an increase of 2% over the current level, according to industry participants in 2019 LME week. DenisSharypin, director of market research at nickel giant NorilskNickel, said demand for raw materials for cobalt and nickel remained strong, indicating that demand from the battery industry remained relatively robust.

As for precious metals, according to the latest statistics from the China Gold Council, domestic raw material gold production was 275.35 tons in the first three quarters of 2019, down 14.40 tons from the same period in 2018, down 4.97 percent from the same period last year. In the first three quarters of 2019, the actual consumption of gold in the country was 768.31 tons, a decrease of 9.58 per cent compared with the same period in 2018. Domestic gold jewelry, gold bars, gold coins and industrial gold demand showed a downward trend.

In terms of environmental protection, the Office of the leading Group for the Prevention and Control of Air pollution in Hebei Province recently issued the Circular on the initiation of Orange early warning and level II Emergency response to Regional double pollution Weather. During the period of emergency response, enterprises and projects included in the "positive list" of eco-environmental supervision should fully ensure normal production, while ensuring the effective operation of pollution prevention and control facilities and strictly implementing pollution prevention and control measures. Do not limit production, do not stop production, do not inspect, do not disturb, encourage enterprises to reduce emissions on their own. In addition, it is reported that between January and September 2019, Indonesian steel exports rose 28.86 percent from US $4.15 billion in the same period last year to US $5.35 billion, or equivalent to 75.07 trillion guilders. The increase in exports of steel products is due to the surge in exports of stainless steel.
