Macro monetary policy is conducive to the continued rebound and uptrend of basic metals, but what is more leading is that the 1911 contract will usher in the delivery cycle next week. Each metal variety will change according to the strength of its own fundamentals, with the structural changes of the price difference between months, strong items guard against high pressure, weak metal or test the effectiveness of support in the low key integer position, the difference between strength and weakness will be increased.

 

 

Copper: Lun copper has maintained its upward trend this week. During the week, US non-farm payrolls data in October surpassed expectations and superimposed US PMI data, weakening the market's expectations of further interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve, showing that the effectiveness of US easing policies has initially appeared, US stocks have been boosted to a new all-time high, and 10-year Treasury bond yields have also hit a new high in nearly three months. CMX gold prices have fallen to around 1460 US dollars / oz, and market risk aversion has gradually cooled. Superimposed on the improvement in the situation of Sino-US trade negotiations, the market atmosphere has warmed up, and optimism has increased. Lun Copper's confidence has been boosted all the way higher. Lun Copper has been based on 5850 US dollars / ton since Monday and gradually got rid of the winding of the 5-day and 10-day moving average. it broke through the $5900 / ton mark, stood at the $5950 / ton level, hit a weekly high of $6011 / ton, hit a new high in nearly three months, touched Brin on the track, and rose nearly 2% on Thursday.

This week, the center of gravity of Shanghai copper moved up compared with last week, the characteristics of external strength and internal weakness were obvious, and the ratio of Shanghai to London decreased. Driven by optimism about the improvement in Sino-US trade, Shanghai Copper went high at the beginning of the week. Subsequently, the central bank carried out the 400 billion yuan one-year MLF operation, the winning interest rate was 3.25%, 5 basis points lower than the previous period. The small interest rate cut by the central bank reflected the domestic determination to maintain stable economic growth. The appreciation of the RMB broke through the 7 integer mark, giving confidence to the domestic market. The Shanghai copper main force 1912 contract broke away from the 20-day and 40-day moving averages, stood firmly at the 47000 yuan / ton integer mark, and the center of gravity moved up and remained stable around 47300 yuan / ton. And rushed up to 47630 yuan / ton within the week high, the weekend has stood on the 10-day moving average, KDJ index showed a golden fork trend. The weekly position of the main force 1912 contract decreased by 18700 hands to 180000 hands, mainly by the reduction of short positions, the weekly position of the Shanghai Copper Index decreased by 8862 hands to 529000 hands, and the trading volume decreased by 219000 hands to 1.119 million hands. The main force holds the position backward, is about to complete the change of the month.

 

On the spot side, the spot rally this week gradually pulled up to 100 yuan. Just entered the beginning of the month, the enterprise capital performance is relatively abundant, and the recent import window continues to close, imported copper does not see a large number of imports into the market, the market circulation supply is limited, stimulating the market traders low prices actively take goods sentiment, so this week also makes the holder is more willing to bid. Superimposed recent Shanghai copper contract spread in recent months to maintain around Contango 80 yuan / ton, leading spot quotation from the beginning of the week 30-80 yuan / ton to 100-120 yuan / ton. However, due to the subsequent high level, and the high rise in water to suppress the profit margins of traders, so the quotation continues to raise space is limited, spot trading activity during the week is mainly led by traders.

 

 

 

Aluminum: aluminum maintained a high shock this week. At the beginning of the week, stimulated by Powell's hawkish speech, the market atmosphere improved. Short positions were reduced by more than 10,000 hands. Lun aluminum directly crossed the 1800 yuan / ton mark and continued to rise after that. Because the upper pressure remained, it remained high near 1810 US dollars / ton in the next few days. It rose to a weekly high of 1819 US dollars / ton on Thursday. As of 16:30 on Friday, the K line closed at 1815 US dollars / ton. Trading volume increased by 14070 hands to 71024 hands, position volume reduced by 11073 hands to 768000 hands, short position reduction, closed in the small positive line this week, the center of gravity jumped to the 20-day moving average, and began to explore the upper 40-day moving average resistance level, weekly KDJ three-line opening up. Macro mood improved this week, the early Fed interest rate cut under the background of short flight, Lun aluminum changed the previous malaise posture began to climb higher, Thursday Ministry of Commerce spokesman released the gradual removal of tariff signal news, the outer plate metal turned red that night, Lun aluminum to explore the upper space and refresh more than a month since the new high, is expected to continue to maintain strong volatility in the evening, focus on next week's dollar index and important euro zone data and other macro data.

 

The Shanghai aluminum main company 1912 contract showed a strong concussion this week, which opened at 13940 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week. In the following days, the shorts reduced their positions and left the market one after another, and the center of gravity of aluminum prices moved up one after another. Due to the above pressure on the 40-day moving average aluminum prices fell slightly on Wednesday, but as the short positions were further closed, Shanghai aluminum gained power and leapt above the 40-day moving average on Friday, with the upper shadow line rising 14120 yuan / ton, brushing the recent 40-day high, and closing on Friday. Shanghai aluminum week K line closed at 14030 yuan / ton, across the Wansi pass, closed at the Zhongyang line, piercing the upper 40 / 60 daily moving average resistance, trading volume increased by 11904 hands to 531000 hands, position reduced by 21224 hands to 206000 hands, short positions reduced mainly this week, weekly KDJ third line rose, MACD green line shortened. As of Friday, the BACK spread between the 1911 contract and the 1912 contract has expanded to around 170 yuan / ton. The widening spread is mainly due to the forced position effect caused by the exchange month of the current month's contract, short closing or backward moving, pushing up the strength of the month. The main 1912 contract also gained a rally under the background of improved macro atmosphere. It is expected to continue to maintain strong volatility in the range next week, but continue to have limited upstream space. Next week, we will continue to pay attention to the changes in the current month and the next month.

 

Prices of spot aluminium ingots in eastern China were higher this week, rocking upward from Monday to Friday. The prices of Shanghai and Wuxi are concentrated between 1405014190 yuan / ton, 70-up 90 yuan / ton, and 14060-14180 yuan / ton in Hangzhou. The average weekly price of the three places rose more than 130 yuan / ton compared with last week. When Shanghai and tin are approaching the weekend, the price of deliverable brand aluminum ingots is between 14150 and 14230 yuan / ton, which is 60 yuan / ton higher than that of other brands. Due to the sharp rise in aluminum prices, the shipping enthusiasm of some holders in the spot market was significantly higher than last week, the willingness of some middlemen to receive goods at low prices did not abate, and the two sides traded more actively, but because the number of shippers increased significantly, and there were not many spot aluminum ingots circulating near the exchange month in the market, the actual transactions between the two sides showed a slight stalemate, and a major market procurement plan this week was also biased towards deliverable brands. Downstream manufacturers this week to maintain on-demand procurement status, due to high prices, downstream wait-and-see mood is stronger, the actual volume of goods is less, the performance is light.
