Daily review of spot trading of scrap copper

Today, the spot price of electrolytic copper in Shanghai quoted a price of 140 yuan / ton to 170 yuan / ton for that month's contract, 43210 yuan / ton to 43300 yuan / ton for Pingshui copper, and 43220 yuan / ton to 43310 yuan / ton for copper / ton. Shanghai copper morning market opened low and directly rose back to 43100 yuan / ton first-line shock, today to change the month to 2006 contract quotation, early trading inquiry is active, the holder quotes 150 ~ 170 yuan / ton, good copper can be a small amount to 150 yuan / ton, flat copper price down to 140 yuan / ton transaction is active, the trading atmosphere is slightly better than last Friday. In the second trading session, the supply of copper with low price and flat water has been difficult to find. The rising water of good copper is 160 yuan / ton to 170 yuan / ton, and the standing price of copper water in Pingshui is more than 150 yuan / ton, but the trading heat is not as hot as the morning market, and it is just needed downstream. Wet copper keeps rising water around 110 yuan / ton. Today, the market quotation is firm, the holder still intends to push up the water, the source of low-rising water is highly favored by the market, the transaction is mainly based on the receipt of goods by traders, and the trend of firm quotation will continue.

The price of bright copper in Guangdong is 39900 yuan / ton ~ 40200 yuan / ton, the same as the previous trading day, the price difference of fine waste is 699 yuan / ton, down 80 yuan from the previous month. (the ticket point is calculated as 5.9%) as the waste enterprises start work one after another, the downstream manufacturers maintain a large number of receipts, and the competition for the supply of goods is still fierce. Customs data show that the import of scrap copper in April was 80597 physical tons, down 1.76% from the previous month, and 56.24% lower than the same period last year. From January to April, imports totaled 305680 physical tons, down 44.37% from the same period last year. As overseas scrap copper exports began to be blocked one after another in late March, domestic scrap copper imports in April were in line with the trend of month-on-month decline; while the cumulative import volume almost halved compared with the same period last year, except for supply-side factors, there are also reasons why importers grabbed imports in July last year, resulting in a large base.
