Lun copper surged $4900 on Friday after consolidation near $4850, a weekly increase of more than 2%. After finishing near the 39000 yuan mark, Shanghai copper broke through the 40, 000 yuan integer mark in one fell swoop, and the ratio was revised upward.

To a certain extent, this will inject new stimulus and impetus into the market after Ching Ming Festival, and the market is expected to turn its attention to tax reduction again. Next week, all items may continue to make efforts under the macro favorable policy, and the bulls are expected to push up and get rid of the previous low consolidation state. However, we still need to guard against the spread of the overseas epidemic and the forward pressure on the global economy, the risk of short selling depends on, and the unilateral market is difficult to appear. The long-short game intensifies.


Copper: copper is up slightly this week from last week, with a center of gravity fluctuating around $4850 a tonne. Global turmoil during the week. In the context of the sharp drop in oil prices in the early days, Trump stepped in oil prices, and market expectations for Saudi Arabia and Russia to cut production stimulated a sharp rise in international oil prices, driving the global stock index higher, partly hedging the drag on the market caused by the worsening employment data, but also led to a rebound in the non-ferrous sector, and copper prices were boosted again. Lun copper gradually rose from around 4750 US dollars / ton at the beginning of the week and successfully stood above the 10-day moving average. Affected by the epidemic, the production and transportation of copper mines have been disrupted, exacerbating fears of tight copper supply and contributing momentum to the rise in copper prices. But the new crown epidemic is getting worse, and the number of confirmed cases around the world has accelerated beyond the million mark. Countries around the world this week released March PMI data, Europe and the United States are not doing well; the US employment data has deteriorated sharply, the market is pessimistic about the extent of economic contraction and demand prospects. Lun copper's rising momentum weakened, and the center of gravity stabilized at about $4850 / tonne, breaking through the $4900 / tonne mark on Friday by $4936 / tonne, a weekly increase of more than 2 per cent. This week's copper position reduced by more than 8, 000 hands, to 270000 hands, mainly for short reduction; trading volume reduced to nearly 5, 000 hands. At present, Lun copper 5-day moving average has changed from the pressure level to the support level, MACD red column growth, Lun copper 4900 US dollars still have breakthrough pressure, whether to continue the rally and effective breakthrough also pay attention to market risk and long energy.

Copper in Shanghai rose slightly this week compared with last week, with the market breaking through the 40,000 yuan mark over the weekend. During the week, China's macro environment was relatively stable. The core task of monetary policy regulation and control at the 327 Politburo meeting was to "guide the interest rate down in the loan market," reasonably release liquidity to the market, and briefly stimulate a small rise in copper prices. China's official PMI data are significantly better than expected, indicating that the domestic epidemic is well controlled, the economic situation is improving, and market confidence has been boosted in the short term. The main force of Shanghai copper rose slightly from 38680 yuan / ton at the beginning of the week. But the rally was immediately swallowed up by news that the oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia continued to disturb oil prices in the middle of the week. Copper prices fell back to a low of 38830 yuan per ton during the week. After that, the sharp rise in oil prices linked to the copper price, Shanghai copper resumed the rally, driven by domestic tax reduction expectations and positive fiscal policy, superimposed copper supply is tight, the highest level of copper in Shanghai broke through the 40000 yuan / ton mark on Friday, reaching 40120 yuan / tonne.

In the spot market, this week's rise was significantly higher than last week. At the beginning of the week, under the influence of the loose monetary policy and active fiscal policy set by the Politburo meeting, the market was expected to improve. Compared with the low absolute value of the previous copper price, the high rising water suppresses the buying intention, and the transaction is mainly concentrated in the rising water range of 100-130 yuan / ton. The domestic PMI in March is worth announcing that the manufacturing industry returned to production well, which led to the rebound of copper prices in Shanghai, coupled with the expectation of the policy, the willingness of traders to press prices and replenish goods increased, but the holders showed a trend of covering goods and cherishing sales, and the stalemate between supply and demand became more and more obvious. With the rebound of copper prices in Shanghai on Friday, holders still quoted prices of 130-150 yuan / ton, but due to the approach of the Qingming Festival holiday, in order to avoid the risk of the overall market transaction cautious, the weekend market transactions more wait-and-see, the downstream to maintain just need, the market performance is still cautious stalemate.
