SMM7 March 8: today, large pieces of non-ferrous metals are floating red, and Shanghai zinc and lead are up more than 1%. The overall strength of non-ferrous metals, Shanghai copper nearly broke through the 50,000 mark. Amid fears of supply disruptions in Chile, a major copper producer, Chile's mining minister said Chile would give priority to the health of workers to avoid the spread of the virus and further damage production, which has become a bullish factor affecting copper prices. Fears of supply disruptions in Chile have supported copper prices for weeks. In terms of zinc, since the second quarter, the high output of die-casting zinc alloy produced by the smelter has declined, which is also consistent with the weakening of die-casting zinc alloy consumption in the second quarter. The output of die-casting zinc alloy produced by the smelter in June is once again approaching the lowest level since this year. As for the decline in output, we think that the reduction in the output of die-casting zinc alloy by the smelter is mainly due to the reduction of the output of die-casting zinc alloy by the smelter under the background of weaker consumption, coupled with the new maintenance of individual smelters in June. The output of zinc alloy and terminal foreign trade orders are still not improved, resulting in a month-on-month reduction of more than 4700 tons of alloy output produced by the smelter in June. "check the details.

Iron ore has gained momentum due to falling supplies and market concerns about the epidemic in Brazil.
