SMM7 March 21: colored goods generally rose in the morning trading session, the news said that there was new progress in the research and development of Xinguan vaccine. It is reported that a possible coronal vaccine developed by the University of Oxford has produced a good immune response in large-scale early human trials, according to the latest data released on Monday by the medical journal the Lancet (Lancet). Affected by this good news, the global market is obviously warm. Copper mine news, yesterday, BHP Billiton released its second-quarter production report, during the reporting period, BHP Billiton copper production in the second quarter totaled 414000 tons, down 7 per cent year-on-year and 3 per cent month-on-month. In fiscal year 2020, BHP Billiton produced a total of 1.724 million tonnes of copper, up 2 per cent from a year earlier. In the financial year 2021, BHP Billiton's copper production target is 148-1.645 million tons. "Shanghai zinc rose 1.02%, the shortage of domestic mine supply eased, and smelter raw material stocks returned to normal levels." Industry analysts believe that the current increase in supply is expected to strengthen, while demand remains off-season, fundamental support is slightly weak, but taking into account the previous consolidation cycle is long, capital deposits do more demand, short-term or narrow shocks, it is still possible to rise after repair.

In terms of black, iron ore and coking coal rose more than 2%, while steel rose by a limited amount. With the completion of inspection and repair of Australian ports in the middle and first ten days, iron ore shipments are still expected to pick up in the later period, but as the rainy weather in the south is coming to an end, the release of demand downstream of the terminal can still be expected, and iron ore prices may return to high range shocks after short-term adjustment. Vale today released its production and sales report for the second quarter of 2020. The report shows that Vale's iron ore powder production in the second quarter was 67.6 million tons, of which the monthly output in June exceeded 25 million tons, showing a strong increase over the April and May production levels.

Crude oil rose 0.44% in the previous period. OPEC+ decided to prevent loosening and cut production from August, and believes that the recovery in demand and compensated production cuts will offset a considerable portion of the increased production, and the loosening cuts will not affect the rebound in oil prices. The recovery in U. S. economic data also partly supported oil prices, but the spread of the epidemic hit optimism in the market. The long-term rising water of crude oil continues to fall, and the curve is obviously flattened.
