SMM5 March 21: the two sessions will finally be held this afternoon, the market is warm. The non-ferrous market is still up a lot. The recent rise in nickel prices, SMM believes that the direct reason is due to the decline in crude oil inventories to boost speculative sentiment, bulls greatly increase positions. In terms of fundamentals, the consumption of pure nickel is weaker than that of nickel pig iron in the early stage. With the resumption of production in Europe and the United States, the downstream recovery of nickel other than stainless steel, there is a lot of room for marginal improvement. At present, the expectation of the recovery of overseas downstream terminal consumption has not yet entered an obvious implementation stage, and the domestic downstream recovery has not peaked for a long time, and it is a major theme for the global economy to gradually emerge from the impact of the epidemic in the future. however, it will take a long time to fully recover to the level before the epidemic, and nickel prices are expected to continue a strong shock pattern in the second half of the year.

The strong performance of weekly apparent steel consumption reflects the current strong demand for work, in addition to the superimposed mine end cost rise and macro infrastructure policy warm expectations, short-term steel is still in a strong momentum. Mine end news, Shahe City carried out safety inspection of explosion-related enterprises the local mine has stopped production, according to SMM understanding, in 2019 Xingtai City iron ore output of 1.7 million tons, down 13.6% year on year, involving iron powder production of less than 1 million tons.

Crude oil rose 3.17% in the previous period. FatihBirol, director of the (IEA) of the International Energy Agency, said in an interview with the media that global oil demand will take at least a year or more to return to the 100m b / d level before the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia crisis. The pace of recovery in global oil demand will depend largely on global economic growth and the possibility of a second wave of new crown outbreaks, which could lead governments to impose stricter blockades. In its oil market report released in April, the group said the outbreak had erased the increase in global oil demand over the past decade as many countries adopted unprecedented blockades to contain the spread of the new crown virus.
