Lun Copper closed at 6093 US dollars per ton, up 37 US dollars per ton, or 0.61 per cent, as of 17PUR 00. Lun Copper rose today as investors' concerns about the copper supply side intensified again, and the Chilean Copper Mining Union proposed to the government to suspend production of all Chilean copper mines for 14 days to stop the further spread of the epidemic, adding to concerns about tight global copper supplies, supporting copper prices. At present, Lunchu is positive, and the opening of KDJ is expanded. In the evening, we will pay attention to the number of initial jobless claims in the United States in the week ended June 27, and the release of non-farm data to test whether Lun Copper can completely effectively exceed 6100 US dollars / ton.

Today, the main force of copper in Shanghai opened at 49390 yuan / ton in the morning, and the bulls increased their positions after the opening, driving the copper price to rise rapidly, exploring a daily high of 49570 yuan / ton. The high bulls took profits and took back some of the gains, then fluctuated in a narrow range around 49360 yuan / ton until the close in the afternoon. Copper prices briefly opened in the afternoon to explore the intraday low of 49270 yuan / ton, around 49300 yuan / ton attracted bulls to enter the market, driving the market to recover, and finally closed at 49410 yuan / ton, up 310 yuan / ton, up 0.63%. During the day, the main contracts reduced positions by 1262 to 128000, mainly by long positions; trading volume decreased by 5000 to 147000; and Shanghai Copper 07 contracts significantly reduced positions by 8400 to 44000, mainly by short positions. At present, the market still maintains the back structure, and the contract spread of 07mur08 has narrowed to around 80 yuan / ton. Shanghai copper continued to rise today. Last night, the United States announced that the weekly EIA crude oil depot fell from the previous value of 1.442 million 4.627 million barrels to-7.195 million barrels, ADP employment increased significantly, macro sentiment optimistic, bullish copper prices. In addition, the epidemic continues to spread in South America, with more than 280000 confirmed cases of new crown pneumonia in Chile so far. Celso Pardo, president of the (Antofagasta Minerals) Trade Union Confederation of Tofagasta Mining Company, has called on the government to suspend operations at all copper mines for 14 days to stop the spread of new crown pneumonia among workers. The news continued to raise concerns about copper supply, and concerns about tight copper supply fermented again, supporting copper prices higher. Today, Shanghai copper sun, along the Brin on the track, the top away from all recent moving averages. Non-farm data are released in the United States tonight, which is expected to lead to optimism in the market, waiting for the outer disk guidance at night to test whether the bulls can continue to push copper prices upwards.

Today, the spot price of electrolytic copper in Shanghai is quoted at a discount of 10 yuan / ton to 40 yuan / ton for that month's contract, 49410 yuan / ton to 49520 yuan / ton for flat copper, and 49420 yuan / ton to 49520 yuan / ton for copper with rising water. The high concussion of copper in Shanghai was sorted out at 49500 yuan / ton. In the morning, the supply of copper was still abundant and the willingness to cash was clear. Most of them came from imported copper sources, continuing the slide-like rhythm of the previous few days. The price offered by the holder continued to decline, and the market willingness to receive goods was always low. Under ample supply, the holder accelerated to lower the quotation, and the good copper dropped from around 50 yuan / ton to 10 yuan / ton. Pingshui Copper only shows its willingness to receive goods from the quotation of 40 yuan / ton to 10 yuan / ton of discount. Keep wait-and-see downstream, wet process copper quotation from 20 to 50 yuan / ton discount and there is still room for substantial price reduction. Plate strong copper prices are high, stocks are increased, market consumption is afraid of heights and buying is weak, market risk aversion vigilance is still high, it is difficult for the market to quickly digest imported copper, and the daily output of the warehouse has dropped sharply recently. in the short term, spot prices may soon turn to a comprehensive discount situation. In the afternoon, the continued high shock hindered 49500 yuan / ton, and there were still some discounted supply of 10 yuan / ton in spot to attract the consignors, but the good copper refused to follow suit and managed to hold steady at the rising water level of 10 Mel 20 yuan / tonne, and the transaction price was deadlocked at 49,400 Mel 49,520 yuan / ton.

After the partial correction of Shanghai aluminum prices in the vicinity of 1619 US dollars / ton smooth operation, as of 15: 00 Lun aluminum reported 1614.5 US dollars / ton. In the European session, Shanghai Aluminum recovered its decline and rose higher, as of 1715, Lun Aluminum was at 1619 US dollars / ton. The recent epidemic crisis abroad has continued, and the manufacturing PMI data of Europe and the United States in June are still below the rise and fall line, so we need to continue to pay attention to the external impact of US non-agricultural data in the evening.

The main 2008 contract of Shanghai Aluminum opened at 13995 yuan / ton in the morning, and the long positions increased more than 250 hands in the first 5 minutes.

Recently, the spot supply of electrolytic aluminum is tight, considering the weakening fundamental signals such as the gradual weakening of new orders in the downstream aluminum processing industry, both sides are relatively cautious today. To avoid danger and leave the scene one after another. It is expected that the night is still dominated by strong shocks, Wansi is still a short-term breakthrough target.

Aluminum rises first and then suppresses in the early afternoon. In the morning, the spot price in Shanghai is between 14400 and 14410 yuan / ton. In the second trading stage, with the fall of aluminum futures, Shanghai prices begin to concentrate between 14360 and 14380 yuan / ton.

A large buyer plans to purchase more than 10,000 tons in East China today, and the normal quotation shows that the shipments of the holders are still relatively positive, the middlemen are relatively less willing to receive the goods, and the trading between the buyers and sellers is poor, which is obviously not as good as that in early June. Downstream today, mainly on-demand procurement, as aluminum prices have risen for several days in a row, taking into account the weakening of their own orders and the previous part of the hoarding of goods, the recent purchase interest is not high. The overall transaction in East China is poor today. In the afternoon, aluminum remained low and fluctuating, with the price quoted by the holder around 14310 yuan / ton, and the price rising water to the market was about 110yuan / ton. Only a small amount of transactions were made between traders, and there were few light transactions downstream.

Lead: within a day, lead is opened at US $1778.5 / ton. In the Asian session, trading was light, with Lun lead settling in a narrow range below the daily moving average, falling $1771 / ton and hindered around $1775.

After entering the European session, the US dollar plummeted, falling below the 97-point mark, and the basic metals rebounded. Lun lead shot up US $1790 / ton in a straight line and fell back again. As of 1700, Lun lead was last reported at US $1781 / ton, up 5 US dollars / ton, or 0.28%. Lun lead temporarily withdrew the bald Xiaoyang line and was trapped in a shock between the 5th and 20th moving average. The release of non-farm payrolls data in the United States tonight will further guide the market and pay attention to the corresponding performance of the US dollar and US stocks. Pay attention to whether Lun lead can break through the current price bottleneck and get rid of technical pressure.

During the day, the main 2008 contract of Shanghai lead opened at 14795 yuan / ton. last night, the first two attempts to push higher were fruitless. Shanghai lead always hovered near the daily moving average. Shanghai lead was still obviously blocked by 14900 yuan / ton in early trading, and bulls saw no hope of a breakthrough.

In the afternoon, the intraday low of 14710 yuan / ton was detected, and short positions left at the end of the day. Shanghai lead rebounded somewhat. It finally closed at 14790 yuan / ton, up 5 yuan / ton, or 0.03%. The position increased by 866 to 26317, while the trading volume decreased by 3383 to 22639. It is difficult to stand firm in the multi-head rush within the day, and the performance meets the high departure. Shanghai lead closed cross star today, but it is still standing above all averages, but it is necessary to be vigilant that the technical indicators of KDJ have shown signs of convergence, pay attention to the seesaw performance of multi-empty forces in the night market, and the disk may continue to carry out high shock finishing based on the 5th line.

Lead on the impulse can be limited, after the opening of the morning a small decline, the price of the holder with the market, while the rapid expansion of recycled lead discount, just need to transfer downstream, the trading market continues to be in the doldrums.
