SMM5 11: non-ferrous metals rose, Shanghai aluminum Shanghai tin rose more than 1%. In the past, China took the lead in the recovery of domestic production, and the construction industry, represented by infrastructure investment, accelerated its recovery and demand improved. Since May, market confidence has been boosted as economies restart. In terms of copper, SMM data show that the tax price difference between bright copper and copper electrolytic copper is 619 yuan / ton, an increase of 251yuan compared with the previous month. In particular, the tax price difference between bright copper supply and electrolytic copper in Jiangxi is close to 1000 yuan, which makes the price difference between scrap copper rod and refined copper rod open quickly. Although the advantage of scrap copper rods instead of electrolytic copper rods will expand, which will lead to an increase in demand, it will not allow the supply of scrap copper rods to recover quickly. "it mainly depends on the problem of scrap copper raw materials." in view of the obvious improvement in the domestic epidemic compared with the beginning of the year, terminal consumption has also picked up in the near future. The Association said that the recent downturn in international oil prices has also subverted consumers' expectations of rising oil prices, and that the low price of domestic refined oil products has also reduced the use costs of users, which is conducive to promoting consumption in the car market. Wholesale sales of new energy passenger vehicles in April were 64000, down 30 per cent from a year earlier and up 14.8 per cent from March. Retail sales in the passenger car market reached 1.429 million in April, down 5.6 per cent from a year earlier, the strongest monthly trend this year. The year-on-year growth rates in March and April both reached nearly 40 percentage points, reflecting a good trend of V-shaped recovery at the bottom since the epidemic.

The black series rose slightly at midday, the thread heat rose 0.03%, and the iron ore was flat. According to the latest SMM tracking, the 35 mainstream hot rolled coil mills surveyed totaled 9.3429 million tons of hot rolled commercial materials in May, an increase of 3.1 percent over the actual output of 9.0624 million tons in April. This is mainly due to the resumption of maintenance and production in steel mills and the increase in cold and heat transfer. As for the relevant sectors, according to statistics, the total sales of excavators in April were 45400, up 59.9 percent from the same period last year. At present, the actual demand of excavator terminal is good, which leads to the growth of steel demand. Iron ore port inventories continue to decline, short-term supply is tight to boost ore prices, but there is a risk of a pullback in the medium to long term.

Crude oil fell 1.66% in the previous period. International oil prices fell on Monday as fears of oversupply continued and the economic downturn caused by the new crown epidemic offset support from production cuts in some oil-producing countries around the world. Us crude oil futures for July fell 65 cents, or 2.5 percent, to $25.51 a barrel. Brent July crude oil futures fell 41 cents, or 1.32 percent, to $30.56 a barrel. While more countries are turning to loosening restrictions to prevent and control the epidemic, which could support a rebound in oil demand, signs of a second wave of new crown virus outbreaks are worrying investors.

The trading was suspended at noon.
