SMM4 20: today's non-ferrous metals market trading atmosphere is better, although international oil prices fall again but non-ferrous metals are almost not dragged down. Among them, Shanghai nickel rose 4.42%, leading the rise in non-ferrous metals. As a result of the impact of the epidemic, Indonesia and the Philippines have been reducing production activities and blocking borders for a long time, sparking expectations of a global nickel shortage. And Vale, a nickel miner, recently cut its forecast for nickel production from 20-210000 tons to 18-195000 tons, adding to concerns about late supply. Shanghai lead is down 1.24% today. At present, the overall profit of recycled lead is fair. According to SMM research, as of April 17, the production profit of recycled lead enterprises is 181 yuan / ton, and the supply of recycled lead is expected to increase one after another. In the aspect of primary lead, although some smelters carry out maintenance, but the amount of influence is limited and close to May 1, the primary lead smelter will continue to produce and the pressure on the supply side is still large. On the consumer side, lead battery market consumption is not expected to improve for the time being, storage enterprises in order to avoid cumulative inventory, more sales to fix production, in addition to finished batteries to maintain promotions superimposed May Day downstream storage enterprises or holidays, the market does not hold optimistic expectations for future consumption, and the overseas situation is not optimistic. SMM believes that short-term Shanghai lead is dominated by interval shocks, focusing on inventory changes.
The black system kept the mine rising and falling, while iron ore rose 1.06%, thread fell 1.12%, hot rolled down 0.83%. Iron ore due to the reduction of production targets, short-term or strong shocks. In the aspect of steel, with the increase of the pressure of reproducing electric furnace with loose scrap resources, the improvement of downstream demand leads to the continued degeneration of inventory. Thread short-term is in the pattern of both supply and demand, but although apparent consumption continues to recover, inventory degeneration, but it is necessary to note that steel inventory is still at the same time in previous years high, the market is still skeptical about whether consumption can be maintained.
Crude oil fell 3.69% in the previous period. International crude oil futures also fell, with US crude oil futures down more than 10 per cent, earlier hitting their lowest level since 1999. There are concerns that U. S. oil storage facilities will soon be full as the new crown epidemic hits demand. Oil storage at U. S. oil storage facilities, especially in Cushing, Oklahoma, is growing rapidly. Refiners have had to scale back their activities as demand for energy has fallen. Earlier pessimistic forecasts from the international oil agency added to the air bias.
