Copper: today, Apanlon copper opened higher at $6540 / tonne, then adjusted around the daily moving average, during which it hit an intraday high of $6550 / tonne. However, the high position led the bulls to make a profit, and Luntong quickly fell below the daily average and barely stood at $6500, and then sorted out around $6505 / ton. In the afternoon, the bulls entered the market, Lun Copper soared about $30 / ton, but the momentum was not enough to fall again. Entering the European trading session, Lun Copper continued to fall as low as $6469.5 / ton. Lun Copper closed at 6489 US dollars / ton, down 11 US dollars / ton, or 0.17%. Copper in Geneva fell, mainly due to the growing tensions between China and the United States, which continued to spark investor concern, making it difficult for copper prices to continue to rise. At present, Lun copper negative, KDJ opening down expansion, but below still jump off multiple moving averages, copper prices are still in the upstream channel. In the evening, focus on the monthly rate of US industrial output and price index changes in June, the New York Federal Reserve manufacturing data in July, focus on the data to guide the US stock index and the dollar index, and test whether Lun Copper can regain its strength above the $6500 / tonne mark.

Today, the Shanghai Copper 09 contract opened at 52520 yuan / ton in the morning. after the opening, the bulls increased their positions and pulled up the copper price in the short term, exploring a daily high of 52700 yuan / ton, but then the short positions increased and depressed the copper price, as the long positions continued to fall to 52260 yuan / ton. At this time, Kongping more copper prices rebounded, the center of gravity around 52430 yuan / ton position shock adjustment, until the midday close. Opening in the afternoon, bulls entered the market to drive up the copper price to 52610 yuan / ton, but the upward momentum was insufficient, and the market fluctuated and fell. At the end of the day, the bulls made a profit and left the market, and the market declined rapidly, closing at the lowest point of the day, 52120 yuan / ton, down 260 yuan / ton, or 0.5%. During the day, the contract reduced its position by 734 to 110000, showing a long reduction in position, while the trading volume decreased by 36000 to 92000. The copper concussion in Shanghai fell during the day, mainly due to the cold macro mood. At present, the number of confirmed cases of the new crown epidemic continues to rise to nearly 13.5 million, and the escalating crisis of the new crown epidemic has further overshadowed the prospects of economic recovery. in addition, with increasingly strained relations between China and the United States, Trump publicly "persuaded" the European Union to boycott Huawei on the grounds of trade policy. with the United States escalating its crackdown, the British government announced today that it will stop buying new Huawei equipment and dismantle used Huawei equipment by 2027. In this case, risk aversion in the market re-accumulated, copper prices fell under pressure. Today, Shanghai copper negative, KDJ opening expansion, but the lower averages are still long arrangement, copper price callback space is limited. In the evening, waiting for the outer disk guidance, test Shanghai copper rose again to recover the decline. Today, the Shanghai Copper 2007 contract faces delivery. It opened at 52210 yuan / ton and closed at 52280 yuan / ton, up 150 yuan / ton, or 0.29%. It was settled at 52410 yuan / ton, with a position of 3240 lots and a delivery volume of 16200 tons.

Today, the spot price of electrolytic copper in Shanghai quoted a price of 30 to 110 yuan / ton for that month's contract, 52370 yuan / ton to 52530 yuan / ton for Pingshui copper, and 52390 yuan / ton to 52550 yuan / ton for Shengshui copper. Copper in Shanghai continued to consolidate at a high level, rising slightly to around 52400 yuan / ton, an increase of about 300 yuan / ton. Today is the last trading day of 07 contract, the price difference between that month and every other month fluctuates violently, and the price spread in the morning market still fluctuates in the range of 40-70 yuan / ton. Most of the market has moved to 2008 contracts every other month, and the quotations are active, but according to the SMM copper price methodology, SMM is still bidding for 2007 contracts. The market offers a discount of 10 to 20 yuan per ton for 2008 contracts, and the market holds a cautious wait-and-see attitude. Entering the second section, the monthly price difference volatility intensified, the fluctuation expanded to 70,100 yuan / ton range, so traders expressed preference for discounted goods, after a round of active inquiry to buy, the holder raised the quotation, has been difficult to find discounted supply, flat copper concentrated in flat water ~ liter water 10 yuan / ton, good copper price rose to 20 yuan 30 yuan / ton, but the deal immediately showed a stalemate, wet method copper continued low discount 90 ~ 70 yuan / ton, wet method copper continued low price discount 90 ~ 70 yuan / ton, flat copper concentrated in flat water ~ liter water 10 yuan / ton, good copper price rose to 20 million yuan / ton, but the deal immediately showed a stalemate, wet method copper continued low price discount 90 ~ 70 yuan / ton. According to the price difference change, the 2007 contract quotation in that month is concentrated in the price range from 30 to 110 yuan / ton, due to the large price difference between two months, the price range from Pingshui copper to good copper is also on the large side. Today is the last 2007 contract trading day, the market spread has corrected and expanded, and the spot has temporarily shown a situation of rising water in an all-round way, but copper prices are still high, supply is still loose, and transaction difficulties have improved significantly for the time being. I am afraid that after the change of months, we can only maintain the pattern of a small rise in water, and the trend of supply and demand will also continue. In the afternoon, the market rose first and then suppressed, the spot rising water rose slightly, especially the good copper, because the supply of goods available was limited, so the good copper rose more to 40 cents 50 yuan / ton, while the flat copper rose only a little, rising 10 cents 20 yuan / ton, and the transaction price was still hovering at 52370 cents 52580 yuan / ton.

The day K is temporarily closed on a Xiaoyang line. The dollar index fell, which is expected to be dominated by strong shocks in the evening.

The main 2008 contract of Shanghai Aluminum opened at 14465 yuan / ton in the morning. After the opening, a small number of bulls entered the market to test the aluminum price, and then quickly left the market. The aluminum futures price in the morning continued the trend of horizontal volatility in yesterday's night trading, fluctuating in a narrow range of about 14470 yuan / ton. In the afternoon, some short positions were reduced, aluminum futures prices ushered in a wave of rise, recording a intraday high of 14560 yuan / ton, but the high position was attacked by short positions, aluminum prices went down and gave up their gains, and the bulls hurriedly left at the end of the day. Shanghai Aluminum's 15-minute K line closed at a negative line, closing at 14475 yuan / ton. 08 contract day position decreased by 4354 to 137782 hands, the Shanghai Aluminum Index position decreased by 8497 to 406652 hands, the daily K closed at a small Yin line, down 0.07%, the decline was slower than yesterday, the center of gravity was close to the 5-day moving average, mainly long positions during the day. Bulls reduced positions for two consecutive days, aluminum futures prices further slightly down, the current electrolytic aluminum social inventory is still low, spot supply tension gives aluminum price support, spot-driven futures price logic remains unchanged. At the same time, the recent sharp fluctuations in disk prices and the reduction of positions over the past three days reflect the current lack of confidence on both sides of the long and short positions, and a high degree of vigilance for the current aluminum prices, and we still need to pay attention to the changes in disk capital flows in the future. and the appearance of bearish signals in the follow-up fundamentals. Today is the last trading day of the Shanghai Aluminium 2007 contract. Today, the closing price is 14665 yuan / ton, the settlement price is 14785 yuan / ton, the position is 9085 lots, and the delivery volume is 45425 tons.

The spot price in Shanghai and Wuxi is between 14820 and 14840 yuan / ton, while the price in Wuxi is slightly higher, which is 75 yuan / ton lower than yesterday, and the morning discount is near Pingshui, 11; Aluminum fell back in the later period of 00, but most of the holders are reluctant to follow the sharp price reduction, the price adjustment space is only less than 20 yuan / ton, and the basic rising water to the plate is around 40 muri 60 yuan / ton, but there are not many holders who actually follow the quotation. The transaction price in Hangzhou is 14830 Mel 14850 yuan / ton. In the morning, traders made active inquiries, and the holders' willingness to ship goods was low and relatively high, and the transaction heat gradually increased after 10: 00, but in view of the fact that a large family still did not carry out a procurement plan in East China today, it was difficult for traders to actually increase their own trading volume, and the trading between the two sides was relatively general. Today, the downstream is mainly purchasing on demand, and the enthusiasm of receiving goods is significantly higher than that on Monday. The overall transaction in East China is mediocre today. Aluminum sinking in the afternoon, interval concussion is the main, the price of the holder is confused, between 14770, 14810 yuan / ton, the rising water on the disk is around 40muri 50 yuan / ton, only a small amount of transactions are made among traders, and there are few downstream.

As of 1700, Lun lead fell to a temporary intraday low of 1846.5 US dollars / ton, down 4.50 US dollars / ton, or 0.24%. Lun lead k line entity moved below the 5-day moving average as a whole, the KDJ index converged, the technical side was generally empty, and today's LME lead inventory increased by 1775 tons to 63075 tons, which may further hinder the upward trend of Lun lead. On the other hand, the dollar index fell sharply today, leading to a boost. Looking at the July New York Fed manufacturing index and the week's EIA crude oil inventory, it is expected that lun lead is still likely to rise above the 5-day moving average.

During the day, the main 2008 contract of Shanghai lead opened at 15410 yuan / tonne. As Shanghai lead failed to reach 15440 yuan / ton twice at night, bulls reduced their positions one after another in early trading.
