SMM5 month 6: the first day after the festival non-ferrous metals market trading mood is good, most varieties of metals rose. There are measures to relax epidemic control in Europe and the United States during the holiday season, some countries have considered restarting economic activity, and global demand is expected to recover quickly. Suriname, the largest shipper in the Philippines, will resume shipments in mid-May, the impact of supply-side stories began to weaken, nickel prices lack upward momentum, Shanghai nickel fell 1.01%. Shanghai aluminum pulled up, downstream demand is still strong two weeks to reduce storage volume to an all-time high. SMM believes that it is expected to maintain a strong volatility pattern of spot water and futures aluminum prices one to two weeks after the festival, and the back structure will remain strong in recent months before the exchange month, and the price spread is likely to widen further. It is necessary to pay continuous attention to the impact of long short post-holiday mood changes and crude oil news changes on internal and external aluminum prices.

Black thread rose 1.29%, hot coil rose 1.41%, iron ore rose 0.41%. During the holiday period, Tangshan, Hebei Province, released the "May Air quality enhanced Control period stop production scheduling schedule", involving Jinxi, Jianlong, Ruifeng, Donghua, Kaiheng, Jingan and other steel enterprises, limited production capacity of 1.42 million tons. Supply reduction is good for building materials, but it should be noted that the south entered the plum rain season in May, apparent consumption may move down, demand levels or fluctuations.

Crude oil rose 5.76% in the previous period. Crude oil rose and opened higher in the last period, but then fell back. International crude oil futures rose, but higher-than-expected growth in US inventories heightened concerns about oversupply. Us crude oil inventories rose 8.4 million barrels in the week to May 1, a higher-than-expected increase, the (API) said on Tuesday. Oil prices have risen recently as Eurasian countries lift the anti-epidemic blockade and oil-producing countries cut production. But analysts cautioned that the process of rebalancing the oil market would be tortuous.
