SMM4 28: non-ferrous metals generally closed down today, even in recent days failed to continue to boost the market, as oil prices were once again Waterloo. However, Shanghai aluminum rose against the trend, up 0.93%. According to SMM, under the background that the production and maintenance capacity of the early electrolytic aluminum plant has not yet been fully restored, the arrival of aluminum ingots in East China, South China and Henan has continued to decline in the past two weeks. At the same time, commercial collection and storage news has recently appeared in Yunnan and Gansu, and short-term profit news has concentrated on the supply side. However, in terms of the pressure level of 13000 yuan / ton above, it is difficult to break through quickly for the time being. It is expected that there will still be great resistance in the range of 12800-13000 yuan / ton in the short term. It is necessary to pay attention to the follow-up actual consumption situation and the possible news of other provinces' collection and storage plans in the market. On the nickel side, the two largest Philippine nickel miners said on Tuesday that they expected to gradually resume mining and shipping in the country's main ore-producing areas from May 1. Asian nickel company (Nickel Asia) and global Nife holding company (Global Ferronickel Holdings) are preparing to restart operations in North Surigao in the southern Karaga region, where restrictions are expected to be relaxed after April 30. According to SMM, the mines under the above two enterprises are mainly located in Suriname, and open up exports as scheduled. The two major restarts in the Philippines have been expected in the market, with little impact on nickel prices.

The company hopes to increase its Australian iron ore export capacity by 14 per cent, in a sign of its return to significant growth ambitions.

If market conditions permit, it is hoped that this limit will eventually be raised to 330 million tons, and the iron ore supply end will still be under pressure for a long time. In terms of building materials, the current terminal demand has basically returned to the normal level, coupled with the high level of building materials inventory will be in the process of continuous degeneration, spot prices do not continue to significantly explore the space.

Crude oil fell 6.05% in the previous period. Previous production cuts have not boosted oil prices, which have been volatile recently.

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting countries (OPEC) and other major oil producers, including Russia, have agreed to cut nearly 10 million barrels of oil a day from May to June, accounting for about 10 per cent of global production. The United States, Canada, Norway and Brazil are expected to participate in production cuts.
