Lead rebounded slightly, the price of the holder has not changed much compared with last week, at the same time, there are pre-sale quotations for imported lead in the market, the lower reaches are not optimistic about the future, they just need to purchase, and the transaction in the bulk market is general.

With the high shock of lead in Shanghai, Wansi still firmly limits the upward space, and some recycled lead enterprises have moderately raised the quotations of waste batteries, reflecting the continuing shortage of waste batteries on the market, the return of lead smelting is difficult to make profits, and the supply is limited. The discount range of recycled lead with tax is narrower than it was at the beginning of last week.

In 2019, global trade disputes escalated, the global economy was under pressure, and central banks began a wave of interest rate cuts. At the same time, the meeting of the political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee stressed that at present and for some time to come, the basic trend of China's economic stability and long-term improvement will remain unchanged, and 2020 will also be the year when China will build a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way and the 13th five-year Plan ends. In this context, the new crown virus is rampant all over the world, and it is worth looking forward to how to achieve steady economic growth.

In terms of the lead market, the newly expanded production capacity of overseas mines has been released one after another from 2019 to 2020, but the overseas epidemic has spread and some overseas mines have been put into production and mines under construction. Where will the lead concentrate go in 2020? At the same time, new expansion projects in China's recycled lead market are springing up everywhere. What is the actual output release in 2020? Whether the cost support is effective or not, the supply of waste batteries has become the focus of the future market; and under the influence of a number of policies (such as the new national standard for electric bicycles, motorcycle purchase tax exemption, etc.), whether the subsequent lead consumption matches, and what is the trend of lead prices in 2020?

In response to the above topics, SMM will invite industry celebrities, industry professionals, enterprises from the upper and lower reaches of the industrial chain to hold the "2020 (15th) lead and Zinc Summit" in Changsha to jointly discuss the current situation and problems of the industry, as well as the future development prospects, and analyze the fundamentals and the future trend of zinc prices.
