SMM7 March 9: today, the non-ferrous market continued to rise, Shanghai copper and Shanghai lead rose more than 2%, Shanghai zinc rose 4%. The futures market of the stock market strengthened at the same time, the trend of industrial products was boosted, and the metal market rose in turn. The news that the loading and unloading arm of a barge at the Honggou mine loading port broke down on July 3 and the shipment of the Honggou mine was delayed became the trigger for the zinc rally during the ignition period. However, in the short term, the fundamentals of the zinc market have entered a seasonal weakening, the downstream has entered the off-season of traditional consumption and superimposed the flood situation in the south, while the upstream processing fees rose in July and smelter inventories returned to normal levels also indicate that the raw mine supply is loosening. The trend of zinc prices depends on the choice of funds, boosted by macro optimism, hot money continues to pour into the market, and be vigilant against the situation in China and the United States and the tightening of domestic monetary policy in the future. But the fundamentals are empty and it is recommended to wait and see. For copper, first Quantum has been allowed to resume operations at its CobrePanama copper mine. In early April, the mine was shut down because of a new case of crown virus infection. First Quantum said the project would reach full capacity by mid-August. The company said it would provide updated CobrePanama2020 annual production guidance when it reports second-quarter results in late July. The mine had previously directed production of 210000 to 235000 tonnes of copper and 90, 000 to 100000 ounces of gold in 2020. But the union at Codelco in Chile said nearly 3000 workers had been infected with the new crown virus and supply-side disturbances still boosted futures prices.

Black closed higher across the board, with iron ore, threads and hot rolls all up more than 1 per cent. Iron ore continued the trend of night trading in the morning, once breaking 800 points. Iron ore spot, as the mainstream powder ore varieties are still tight, steel mills still favor the mainstream medium-and high-grade ore, for the port spot price has a certain support. The snail trend in the night market is strong, the market mood is hot, the spot market, the price rose 20tel 30 yuan / ton this morning, but the snail opened high and left low this morning, the market sentiment cooled rapidly, the transaction deviation, and the market price loosened around noon. Shagang quoted 3660LV 3670 yuan / ton, the demand side wait-and-see mood is strong, the low price transaction condition is general, the terminal takes the goods enthusiasm is low, mainly for the speculative demand.

Crude oil in the previous period was flat at 298.9 yuan / barrel. In the news, Gao Feng, a spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce, said at a news conference on the 9th that in order to speed up the improvement of the new oil circulation management system, the Ministry of Commerce, together with various departments, drafted the "opinions on promoting the High-quality Development of Oil products Circulation." on the basis of openly soliciting opinions and suggestions from all walks of life, it has been revised and improved, and relevant procedures are being implemented and will be introduced in the near future.

At present, the disk still maintains the back structure, and the price difference narrowed to around 20 yuan / ton every other month. Shanghai Copper 09, 10 contracts have varying degrees of increased positions. Today, Shanghai copper continued to rise, mainly due to continued macroeconomic optimism. The National Bureau of Statistics announced today that China's CPI rose 2.5% in June from a year earlier, down 0.1% from a month earlier, down 3.0% from a year earlier, and up 0.4% from a month earlier. The decline in PPI narrowed, indicating that domestic and foreign demand continued to pick up, domestic infrastructure and manufacturing demand gradually recovered, and market expectations for copper demand remained optimistic, boosting market confidence and supporting copper prices. Fundamentals, according to SMM research, China's electrolytic copper production fell 1.42% to 759200 tons month-on-month in June, and domestic electrolytic copper production is expected to fall by 2.79% to 738000 tons in July 2020. Supply tensions remain, providing momentum for rising copper prices. Shanghai copper has been positive for 3 consecutive days, MACD red column continues to expand, and the lower high jump is far from the multiple moving averages, from a technical point of view, bullish copper prices. Wait for the outer disk guidelines at night to test whether the bulls can continue to push upward at the 51000 yuan / ton mark.

Shanghai lead rose all the way with the metal plate, reaching 15015 yuan / ton near noon. At the Wanwu integer gate, some bulls made profits and gave up some of the gains.

It should also be noted that the price difference between 07 contracts and main contracts widened from 270 yuan / ton to 390 yuan / ton, while the warehouse receipt inventory increased by only 101 tons today. The warehouse receipt inventory of less than 20, 000 tons does not match the position of nearly 8000 hands of the 07 contract in that month.
