Lead fell back at a high level, and yesterday was the day of delivery, with few quotations from holders and some discounted quotations, while the downstream was afraid of falling and waiting to wait and see. It was still biased towards refinery supply only when it was just needed, and trading in the spot market did not improve. The supply of waste batteries is still tight, the purchasing enthusiasm of smelters is high, and the price of waste batteries is easy to rise and difficult to fall. In addition, the price of lead continues to decline slightly, the profits of recycled lead refineries narrow, and the discount of recycled refined lead shrinks to some extent, but due to fear of high mining and careful mining in the lower reaches, most of them are just needed, and recycled refined lead is still in a state of deep sticking to water.
