Shanghai Copper and Shanghai Aluminum took the lead. Previously, non-ferrous metals led by Shanghai Copper have repeatedly hit phased highs, and Shanghai Copper has reached a two-year high, which has something to do with the optimism brought about by the sharp rise in the stock market at the beginning of the month. However, today, the A-share market plummeted across the board, with the Prev down more than 4%. Pessimism transmitted to domestic industrial products.

It has become an important factor affecting ambient air quality. The iron and steel industry is one of the main sources of carbon monoxide emissions in our city. To carry out comprehensive control of carbon monoxide in the iron and steel industry and effectively control carbon monoxide emissions is very important to continuously improve the atmospheric environmental quality of our city. To this end, the Municipal Bureau of Ecological Environment is advanced in the country, referring to the experience of Tangshan and Handan in Hebei Province, inviting technical units such as the Metallurgical Industry Planning and Research Institute to participate in the joint research, extensively solicit the opinions of enterprises, and formulated and issued the "Linfen Iron and Steel Industry CO Comprehensive Management implementation Plan (trial)" to start the CO governance of the iron and steel industry.

Crude oil fell 1.79% in the previous period, and allies such as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting countries (OPEC) and Russia have reportedly agreed to ease record oil supply cuts from August as the global economy slowly recovers from the new crown pneumonia epidemic. OPEC said production cuts would be officially reduced to 7.7 million barrels a day from August until December. Although some oil-producing countries with early overproduction will take compensatory production reduction measures, there are still some production gaps that cannot be made up. Under the trend of a certain increase in crude oil supply, the rebound in demand is a key factor determining the trend of oil prices in the near future. The demand for crude oil is highly related to the epidemic, so the global epidemic remains an important concern for investors.
