SMM4 month 10: today's general rise in non-ferrous metals, Shanghai nickel Shanghai tin rose more than 2%, zinc demand is weaker Shanghai zinc slightly lower. A few days ago, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said that with the joint efforts of all parties, the rework rate of small and medium-sized enterprises has gradually increased. On the downstream demand side, the enamelled wire operating rate was 77.40% in March, up 52.59% from February and 6.76% higher than expected, according to SMM. The home appliance industry, which is mainly the largest consumer of enamelled wire, has long returned to production, and most of the enamelled wire enterprises that supply household appliances reflect the acceleration of the pick-up rate of household electrical appliances in March, thus promoting the rapid recovery of their operating rate. "[SMM Survey] the consumption of enamelled wire in March exceeded expectations, but in addition to the order volume in April, we should look carefully at the order volume in April. Sources say a videoconference at China's main copper smelter failed to agree on processing fees (TC/RCs) for the second quarter of 2020, complicating decisions as uncertainty over the new crown outbreak complicates decisions. In the first quarter, TC/RCs was priced at $67 a tonne, or 6.7 cents a pound. In the aspect of lead, according to the SMM survey, the operating rate of domestic licensed recycled lead smelting enterprises was 28.31% in March, up 19.1% from the previous month. "View details
The black system is on the strong side of the shock, but the overall increase is not large. According to SMM research data, total hot rolling stocks this week were 5.2554 million tons, down 3.59% from the previous month, but still up 70% from the same period. The main reason is that terminal demand has rebounded this week compared with last week, and in recent days, many places in China have introduced subsidies on car consumption, greatly stimulating terminal consumption. However, it should be noted that due to the epidemic led to the price of imported resources from abroad is on the low side, the domestic steel price has been suppressed, especially the hot coil plate has a greater impact. Ore supply is loose, the acceleration of demand remains to be seen, and has been boosted by a macro recovery in the periphery in the short term. In addition, according to the 35 hot rolled coil mainstream steel mills investigated by SMM, the planned volume of hot rolled commercial materials in April totaled 9.0264 million tons, compared with the actual output of 9.0403 million tons to 0.2% in March. "[SMM hot rolling scheduling report] increased risks on the supply side in April when exports were blocked and imports increased
Crude oil fell 3.13% in the previous period. Last night, the big event in the oil market was finally finalized, and the OPEC+ finally reached a consensus on the issue of reducing production. OPEC+ said OPEC+ would cut production by 10 million barrels a day from May 1, 2020, the first round of production cuts for two months. OPEC+ also confirmed a reduction of 8 million barrels per day to December from July 2020 and 6 million barrels per day from January 2021 to April 2022. However, the futures market fell short of the previous market expectations of 20 million barrels a day.
