SMM5 March 29: most of them rose this morning, but the increase was limited. Shanghai copper rose 0.66%, Shanghai aluminum rose 0.23%, Shanghai zinc rose 0.87%, and Shanghai tin rose 0.81%. Shanghai Aluminum recorded five consecutive positive and constantly fluctuating upward, mainly due to the continuous reduction of inventory to give strong support to aluminum prices. In the short term, Shanghai Aluminum is still dominated by strong shocks, but the follow-up production capacity leads to long-term supply increment, and the persistence of demand leads to consumption uncertainty. it is necessary to continue to pay attention to the recent downstream consumption and the marginal changes of internal and external strength. In addition, in the near future, we need to pay attention to the recent changes in multi-short positions and the ranking of Shanghai Futures Exchange. In terms of nickel, imports of nickel mines fell significantly in April compared with the same period last year. According to SMM, imports of nickel mines fell sharply in April compared with the same period last year, and nickel exports gradually recovered in May, with total imports expected to be about 2.2 million nickel tons, up 63 per cent from the previous month and down 35 per cent from a year earlier. The physical import volume may return to constant in June, but due to the obvious decline in the average grade of nickel ore, the imported metal volume may still decline compared with the same period last year. The inventory of nickel mines in seven major ports across the country has declined continuously, and the situation may be alleviated in June. The import volume is difficult to meet the demand in the short term, the inventory continues to decline, and the ironworks have a high enthusiasm for grabbing goods. At the present stage, there is almost no supply market in June, and most of them are preemptively acquired by large households.

Black iron ore rose 2.69%, hot coil rose 1.72%, thread rose 1.12%. In terms of iron ore port inventories, it has fallen to a new low in nearly three years. The downstream demand is good, maintain the depot to support the ore price, iron ore later mainly follow the finished wood operation. According to SMM, inventories at 35 ports tracked by SMM totaled 100.45 million tons as of May 22, down 1.33 million tons from the previous month and 17.84 million tons from a year earlier, the lowest level in nearly three years. The rigid demand for iron ore in domestic steel mills has led to a continuous decline in port inventory. Today, SMM will release the latest iron ore port data, which is expected to continue to decline. Please stay tuned later. The decline in the national inventory of building materials has slowed significantly in this period, mainly due to the continued weakness of futures and the rainy weather in some areas leading to a slowdown in the pace of terminal delivery, and the demand is still expected in the later period.

Crude oil rose 0.55% in the previous period. International oil prices fell on Friday after US inventory data showed weak fuel demand in the world's largest crude oil consumer and rising tensions between China and the US weighed on global financial markets. Us crude oil futures fell 29 cents, or 0.86 percent, to $33.42 a barrel. However, the contract recorded weekly gains for the fifth week in a row, thanks to production cuts and optimism about the recovery in demand in other countries. U.S. crude oil and distillate stocks rose sharply last week, while fuel demand remained low, according to data released by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) on Thursday.
