SMM5 13: today's non-ferrous black running ice and fire double days, non-ferrous metals generally callback. Yesterday's bright trend of Shanghai lead fell more than 2%, will be all yesterday's increase back, the rest of the metal has a small rise but the disk is still green. Nickel prices are expected to continue to fluctuate strongly, but the short-term upward space is limited. Due to the improvement of consumption and the contraction of some supply links in the second quarter, the overall balance between supply and demand has greatly improved compared with the first quarter, and a small removal of storage can be achieved. However, at present, the good balance sheet of primary nickel is very dependent on the consumption of stainless steel and the contraction of domestic nickel pig iron. Considering that the epidemic situation in overseas areas is still severe, but the intention to resume production is strong, and the future trend is good, there is still some potential for the performance of nickel prices, and the current price may be on the center of gravity of the annual average price. On the aluminum side, under the background of the domestic macro improvement, the fundamentals look at the continued strength of electrolytic aluminum to give some support to the short-term aluminum price, but near the delivery day, as the supply of imports replenishes, the price difference between spot, current month and main contracts shrinks rapidly, and the absolute price shows a correction of high hindrance. The downlink space of the outer disk is relatively narrow in China, so it is necessary to pay continuous attention to the positive logic inside and outside in the near future.

The black system floated red, iron ore rose 2.14%, downstream steel rose slightly. According to SMM tracking data, the volume of incoming cargo last week is expected to be 14.05 million tons, an increase of 1.21 million tons from the previous month, and an increase of 1.72 million tons over the same period last year. During the period, Australia's port departure dropped by 2.08 million tons to 15.6 million tons month-on-month. The significant decline in Australia's port departure in this period is mainly due to the maintenance of several port berths. Brazil's departure from the port fell 820000 tons to 5.27 million tons from the same period last year, basically unchanged from the same period last year. At the same time, the blast furnace operating rate of SMM in April was 86.4%, up 2.3% from the previous month. The demand side of iron ore continued to increase, and prices continued to maintain a strong trend in the short term. Short-term strong domestic demand stimulus policy and the rapid recovery of real estate infrastructure construction, so that the apparent consumption of building materials reached and exceeded the level of the same period last year, the current steel consumption season, the traditional infrastructure power is obvious, the short-term material end will remain on the strong side.

Crude oil fell 1.99% in the previous period. Oil prices fell on Wednesday on fears that a second wave of outbreaks could follow the easing of the blockade, triggering a new round of restrictions on the movement of people, while industry data showed that US crude oil stocks continued to rise. These doubts have overshadowed Saudi calls for more production cuts to restore market balance. Saudi Arabia said earlier this week that it planned to increase production cuts again. Brent crude oil futures are down 2.67% at $29.18 a barrel. Us crude oil futures fell 1.75 per cent to $25.33 a barrel. Oil prices have been hit by fears that a recurrence of infections could prompt some countries to extend the blockade, thereby hitting global economic activity and energy demand.

As of today's daytime close:

Today's capital flow

Funds are one-sided inclined to industrial products, crude oil plate absorbs 622 million funds, black chain and chemical industry are favored by about 600 million funds respectively, iron ore re-hit a new high, a large amount of gold for the third day in a row. Non-ferrous plate fell collectively, funds showed a state of outflow, Shanghai zinc lost 218 million of funds.
