SMM4 7: this morning, Shanghai bronze main contract 2005 jump high open, standing on the 40, 000 gate. SMM believes that it is mainly affected by the following factors:

First of all, from a fundamental point of view, the country has opened the way to inventory. Last week, the last period of inventory fell more than 30, 000 tons from the previous month, SMM research shows that the copper production rate has rebounded significantly compared with the previous month. In addition, as of Friday, SMM national mainstream copper market inventory totaled 462100 tons, down 55800 tons from the previous month. Among them, copper stocks in Shanghai fell 42500 tons to 328000 tons, copper stocks in Jiangsu fell 3000 tons to 51300 tons, and copper stocks in Guangdong fell 10300 tons to 82800 tons. At the same time, the spot price of domestic and foreign trade has also risen rapidly, the market buying is active, and the expectation of tax reduction will stimulate the spot demand to a certain extent.

"[SMM analysis] the expected superimposed supply of copper stocks in the mainstream areas of the country will continue to decline.
