Copper prices skyrocketed at the beginning of the week, while scrap copper rods rose slowly, deducting about 1400 yuan / ton on the disk, attracting traders and downstream purchasers, manufacturers had a large number of transactions, and actively replenished the corresponding raw material positions in the market, receiving and bidding higher. Overall, good orders support the high-load production of scrap copper rod mills. According to SMM data, the operating rate of scrap copper rod enterprises in June was 66.71%, a sharp increase of 23.08% from the previous month, an increase of 18.91% over the same period last year, and it is expected that the operating rate of scrap copper rod enterprises in July will be 70.12%. The demand for copper in the lower reaches is strong, and the supply remains tight.

At the 15th China International Copper Industry chain Summit on July 17, experts in the renewable resources industry gathered to discuss the development of new standards and the import of scrap copper. At present, the standard for recycled copper has been established, mainly waiting for the customs code to be released. It is believed that the reasons that hinder the issuance of tariff numbers by the customs are as follows:

The first and second outbreaks have made the customs more cautious about imports and greatly increased their workload.

Second, the new code alignment standard WTO standard, but also need to consult the formulation of opinions;

Third, the new waste consolidation law to be promulgated in the near future and the penalties imposed by regulators on imports exceeding the standard are not clear enough;

Fourth, overseas shipping companies are worried about being jointly punished by the new waste consolidation law, resulting in some shipping companies suspending shipments after September.

From this point of view, the implementation of recycled copper standards still need more preparatory work, and it is difficult to implement quickly in the short term.

The average weekly price of bright copper this week was 46470 yuan / ton, up 1540 yuan from last week, and the average weekly price difference of refined copper was 2504 yuan / ton, an increase of 379yuan / ton compared with last week. In terms of imported scrap copper, this week's scrap copper CIF quoted a deduction of 17 cents / lb for the 12-month contract price of Meijing copper, and CIF quoted a deduction of 27 cents / lb for the December contract price of Meijing copper.
