Today's forecast zinc price: overnight Lun Zinc received a long shadow Xiaoyang column, the bottom of each long moving average into a multi-head arrangement, the upper 5-day line to form a suppression, MACD index Yang column narrowed. Overnight LME inventory decreased by 700t to 121700 t, a decline of 0.57%. The momentum of slight decline in LME inventory continued. A series of good news about the overnight new crown vaccine, superimposed by a new round of fiscal stimulus negotiations in the United States and negotiations on the European Union recovery fund, have heightened market optimism, but the development of the overseas epidemic can not be ignored. Pay attention to macro guidance in the short term. Overnight, Shanghai zinc received a bare foot positive column, the upper Bollinger Road upper rail formed a compression, the lower part was far away from each long moving average, and the KDJ index was opened and expanded downwards. Driven by the outer disk overnight, Shanghai zinc rose first and then suppressed it. The overseas macro-economy is positive, the economic restart process is advancing, the exports of some end products have improved slightly, the superimposed infrastructure plate projects in some parts of the country have been landed one after another, and the market is optimistic about the rebound in demand to boost the trend of Shanghai zinc. However, the continued fermentation of Sino-US and Sino-British trade relations also limits the upward trend of Shanghai zinc.

 

Today's forecast: the price of lun zinc is expected to operate in the range of US $2170 / ton. It is expected that the contract price of Shanghai Zinc 2009 will run in the range of 17,500Muth18000 yuan / ton, and it is expected that domestic zinc will increase by 240yuan / ton.
