SMM7 March 13: the daytime non-ferrous market rose collectively today, with Shanghai copper rising 4.71% due to foreign mine strikes and other factors, while other non-ferrous metals rose more than 2%. Shanghai Zinc rose 2.62% MagneSMM believes that under the optimistic background of the capital market, the market speculation about the expectation of the peak consumption season has contributed to a strong rebound in zinc prices, but macroscopically, there is still great uncertainty in Sino-US trade relations and the development of the epidemic in the United States. It should be noted that China's flood control and flood fighting has entered a critical period, and the water level in many places has exceeded the record, and the emergency response has risen to level II. We should pay attention to the impact of the flood season on the start-up of local enterprises. In terms of recycled aluminum, aluminum prices have risen a total of 1000 yuan / ton in the last three days. Affected by the sharp rise in aluminum prices, the price of cooked aluminum has risen 100 yuan per ton nationwide, while the price of raw aluminum has risen in East and South China. Import scrap aluminum, the current overseas zorba (95 metal volume, 2% copper broken raw aluminum) Malaysia CIF price of 970 US dollars / ton, after preliminary treatment, the price is also around 1100 US dollars / ton, which is about 1500 yuan / ton lower than the domestic raw aluminum tax price. If imports are liberalized, domestic shocks are inevitable, and all parties remain on the sidelines for imported waste aluminum.


Black iron ore rose 4.8%, hot coil rose 1%, and thread rose 0.97%. Iron ore rose sharply today in anticipation of a recent reduction in supply in major iron ore suppliers. The epidemic situation in the supply side of foreign mines continues to ferment, and so far, the cumulative number of confirmed cases and epidemic deaths in Brazil rank second in the world, second only to the United States. And the news of the Brazilian president's confirmation has added to the market's concern about the local epidemic. In addition, iron ore shipments from Australia are expected to decline seasonally after the end of the fiscal year for large Australian miners in June. In the later stage, with the arrival of consumption in the peak season after plum production, the operating rate of long-process steel mills will remain relatively high.

Crude oil rose 0.54% in the previous period. Oil prices on the outer plate fell nearly 1 per cent as traders focused on a technical meeting held this week by (OPEC), which is expected to recommend easing production cuts, which have been underpinned by supply cuts by OPEC+. Brent crude fell 21 cents, or 0.49%, to $43.03 a barrel, while WTI crude fell 24 cents, or 0.59%, to $40.31 a barrel.

As of today's day close:
