Although the trend of Lunni is weaker than that of Shanghai nickel in the near future, the multiple moving averages are concentrated around 12000 US dollars / ton, and the short-term support is expected to be strong.

At present, the price increase of stainless steel is relatively lack of a large number of transactions in the market as a support, while the price of nickel, especially Shanghai nickel, is mediocre at present. Compared with Ferro Nickel which just needs to be supported, the spot demand of domestic pure nickel is light, or it has gradually become a drag on the price of nickel. To sum up, although the supply of nickel pig iron is abundant, it will not drag down the nickel price for the time being. If the high profits of stainless steel can be relatively maintained, other downstream industries will recover from the overseas epidemic as early as possible, gradually pulling more pure nickel into China to be consumed. Nickel prices may have room for further strength. In the short term, nickel is better than stainless steel.
