Shanghai and tin rose strongly and their prices rose 3% in intraday trading. Nickel also rose strongly under Indonesia's foreign trade controls. Domestic port nickel ore inventory is still net consumption, nickel iron prices remain strong, the previous electrolytic nickel to nickel pig iron discount will enable steel mills to increase the purchase of electrolytic nickel, nickel prices are still supported below.

Shanghai Aluminum has been rising for many days, the recent domestic electrolytic aluminum consumption performance is good, and large households are actively receiving goods, aluminum bar processing fees are high, electrolytic aluminum inventory continues to be rapidly removed, which has a great support for aluminum prices.

At the iron mine end, it was reported earlier that BHP Billiton's Jimba (Jimblebar) had been temporarily shut down. BHP Billiton has had to suspend operations at an iron ore mine in Western Australia that uses a fleet of fully automatic trucks, according to local media reports. After that, however, BHP announced that it would resume operations, with a limited impact on production, but a slight boost to market sentiment.
