[daily Review of Iron Ore Market]

Today, even the railway opened high after the all-day shock stronger, late trading high down, the port spot market early quotation raised 25ko30 yuan / ton. Traders, early quotation enthusiasm is higher, as the market continues to strengthen, some merchants raise prices and hesitate to sell. Steel mills, early inquiry activity is high, a few just need to purchase, most of the price increase acceptance is not high, the overall transaction is general. The turnover of PB powder in Shandong area is about 705 million yuan / ton, while that of PB powder in Tangshan area is about 715 yuan / ton, which is 2550 yuan / ton higher than that of last Friday, which is the highest spot price at the port in recent six months. Some business feedback, taking into account the recent arrival of Brazilian goods to Hong Kong is not expected, and the price is too high, some steel mills have turned to increase the use of Australian mines and non-mainstream mines. Tangshan and Qian'an recently issued a notice to limit production, but so far there has been no suspension / reduction of blast furnace production, so the demand side of iron ore is unharmed for the time being, and there is still a strong support for prices. However, due to the large increase in spot prices in the market and the port, the transaction did not advance in time, or the price continued to soar to a certain extent. [SMM Steel]

4. The CPC Central Committee and the State Council: strengthen the planning and construction of infrastructure in the western region and speed up the planning and construction of major projects. The guiding opinions of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council on promoting the large-scale development of the western region to form a new pattern in the new era pointed out that the planning and construction of infrastructure should be strengthened. We will improve infrastructure accessibility, patency and equalization, and promote green and intensive development. We will strengthen the construction of transport corridors that run from east to west and from north to south, and expand the axis of regional development. We will strengthen the planning and construction of trunk corridors in resource and energy development areas. We will speed up the planning and construction of major projects such as the Sichuan-Tibet Railway, the Yangtze River high-speed railway, the Chongqing-Kunming high-speed railway, and the Xining-Chengdu railway.

5. Ministry of Commerce: China has taken note of the new export control rules issued by the United States against Huawei. The Chinese side firmly opposes this. The Chinese side urges the US side to immediately stop its erroneous practices and create conditions for enterprises to carry out normal trade and cooperation. China will take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises.

Wei Jianguo, former vice minister of the Ministry of Commerce: this year, China's consumption is expected to reach 45 trillion yuan, making it the largest market in the world, and attracting foreign investment is also expected to exceed that of last year. If China can seize the opportunities brought by the emergence of new formats and models such as live streaming and goods, it can not only boost consumption growth, but also promote consumption upgrading and achieve high-quality development.

6. The "two sessions" are just around the corner, the storm of environmental protection and production restrictions is coming, and the increasing rainfall and superimposed demand in Tangshan area is more likely to return. This week, it rebounded and continued to go, but the space converged (there may be a probability of adjustment on Wednesday, but the range is limited). In short, the author does not have more views to maintain the same.

7. The price of scrap has limited space to go back to rutting, and there is a high probability of going forward after a short break. The view of coke remains unchanged once Ziwei Dong (1760), Hu Xingsen Yaomang (1900).

Iron ore: although the valuation is high, but the Brazilian epidemic outbreak superimposed capital manipulation sentiment for the time being, the range continues to trade too much, fast in and out. A small wave of decline is expected in early June.


Zhou Xinyu is attached.

1.. Macroeconomic data are generally neutral. Real estate data, mainly the growth rate of new construction area is still down 18.4%, but the residential construction area increased by 3.8%, further verifying that the demand for real estate stock is not bad! The demand return period is even more expected that the author will not repeat it for N times! Nine words to wake up lost Shi, a large number of people wake up in the dream. On the supply side, with the rapid development of Shijiao (the author believes that scrap steel is likely to be stored in the short term), the cost has moved up sharply, the profits of steel mills have shrunk sharply, and the superimposed operating rate is as high as 90%. In addition, the positive impact of the 75-day military exercise is believed to be in cash. No, no. In addition, the environmental protection and production restrictions of the "two sessions" are already raining. No, no. Why worry about the huge increase in production?!

In short, the author's forward-looking deduction and point of view remain unchanged.

Except for scrap steel and coke, the view of raw material remains unchanged.

Due to the short-term promotion of three factors, iron ore futures still have room to rise, and short sellers have to wait. First, in the outbreak of the epidemic in Brazil, the above news seriously affected the supply of Vale. Second, the military exercises, including and not limited to the impact of transport, increase in transit costs, cargo ships stranded in port, temporary requisition of civilian ships, etc., can happen unexpectedly. Third, the heat of capital manipulation, the intensity of further excitement, of course, the desire to die, must let it crazy!
