SMM4, March 13: most of the non-ferrous metals market rose today after the people's Bank of China said China increased its RMB loan by 2.85 trillion yuan in March and the market is expected to be 1.8 trillion yuan. The central bank increased the liquidity of loans to ensure capital liquidity. Shanghai copper lead rose, up 1.46%. Affected by the outbreak, Freeport announced the temporary closure of the Chino copper mine in New Mexico. It is reported that workers in the mine tested positive for the new crown virus on Friday, and Freeport has explicitly asked workers in the Chino mine to suspend work. The Chino copper mine is tentatively scheduled to close for 14 days, or possibly 21 days, according to people familiar with the matter. The Chino copper mine is the third largest copper mine in North America, producing 79400 tons of copper in 2019. Shanghai tin rose 1.2%. According to SMM research, imported tin mines are still in a state of tension in the near future. At present, the quotation and shipment of raw materials in the western ore section are relatively small. In terms of processing fees, the actual transaction prices also have different fluctuations in the near future because of the different degree of demand for tin mines in smelters. However, the consumption of tin downstream, coupled with the continued increase in the number of confirmed cases of the global epidemic, should also be viewed with caution.

Black roofs rose and fell, and thread stocks rose in April because of continued macro uncertainty, but the marginal impact of peripheral market interference weakened and demand rebounded in the near future, inventories continued to fall. Hot coil, April supply side reduction and demand side recovery space are limited, fundamental pressure relief is not obvious. Superimposed on the current hot rolling inventory pressure is still large, the spot price is suppressed, so the overall spot price in April is expected to be in a volatile weak trend. In the aspect of iron ore, in April, with the increase of domestic mine production, the domestic fine powder supply is expected to pick up month-on-month, and the pellet premium is expected to continue to bear pressure.

Crude oil fell 2.26% in the previous period. The market does not buy the cut agreement and is concerned about the actual implementation of the cut. Commodities analysts at Goldman Sachs note that OPEC + will cut production by 12.4 million barrels a day from April, under the OPEC + cut agreement reached in April (as production in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait continues to surge in April). But based on average production in the first quarter of 2020, OPEC + actually cut production by only 7.2 million barrels a day.
