The following are excerpts from the weekly report on the zinc industry chain:

Zinc market forecast next week: on the Shanghai zinc point of view, this week's overseas epidemic fermentation situation is still grim, domestic consumption in the recovery process has also encountered a dismal external demand brought about by a heavy setback, the overall consumption recovery is not as expected. On the supply side, the mining and metallurgical negotiations are still continuing, the transaction prices of processing fees around the country have been lowered again, and the tight raw materials are still the main problem for refineries, but at present, the profit of processing fees can alleviate the problem of raw materials, and the possibility of concentrated production reduction in smelters in the short term is not great. In addition, fewer refineries are still being overhauled next week, with only western mining repairs affecting a small amount of supply, but the impact is relatively limited, and overall supply-side pressure is relatively strong. On the consumer side, the order of galvanized structural parts is better in the downstream enterprises, and the orders of large galvanized pipe factories and some iron towers and railways are obviously warming up, and some of the orders are scheduled to end in the first half of the year. The die-casting zinc alloy and zinc oxide plate is not optimistic, the bleak impact of external demand is significant, a large number of factory orders for alloys have been sharply reduced, zinc oxide has been frustrated by tire exports, resulting in a significant decline in consumption, overall zinc fundamental support is temporarily weak next week. Next week, Lun Zinc is expected to run at US $1860,1940 / ton; Shanghai Zinc main force 2006 contract is expected to run at 15200-15800 yuan / ton, and the spot is expected to rise to 50-80 yuan / ton in May.

Import profit and loss: internal strength and external weakness will be maintained, the short-term import window is expected to be difficult to open. As of Thursday, the average Shanghai-London ratio this week was 8.26, up slightly from 8.25 last week, and the weekly average import loss narrowed by 80 yuan / ton to about 455 yuan / ton. This week the spot market has a small amount of Spanish circulation, compared with domestic discount of only 10 yuan / ton or so. In the short term, the internal and external strength will remain strong and weak and there is still room for deepening, but the long-term fundamentals have not fundamentally changed, the high selling pressure of the market is relatively large, it is expected that the import window will be difficult to open in the short term, and the foreign trade market is expected to remain desolate.
