Price analysis

The factors that affect precious metal prices in 2020 will focus on three major aspects: Fed monetary policy, euro zone monetary policy and geopolitics.

Combined with the combination of fundamentals and technical factors, it is expected that precious metal prices will rise first and then fluctuate widely in the second half of 2020. Precious metal prices are likely to continue to rise in the third quarter, while precious metal prices are likely to fluctuate widely or adjust slightly in the fourth quarter.

Next year, the bull market in precious metals is likely to end and return to wide volatility.

The upper pressure level of gold price in the second half of 2020 is around $1900 / oz and the lower low is around $1450 / oz.

In 2020, the upper pressure level of silver price is around $20.0 / oz, and the lower low is between $14.0 / oz.

The 2006 price range of Shanghai Bank is 3400 yuan / kg-4800 yuan / kg.

Hedging strategy

Precious metal prices are expected to rise after a pullback low and consolidation in 2020.

For precious metals and enterprises in the upper reaches of the lead and zinc industry chain. Enterprises with mines can not guarantee the price or buy a small amount of insurance, and enterprises that need to purchase raw materials for smelting and processing can build inventory by buying and preserving value.

For precious metals and the middle reaches of the lead and zinc industry chain as well as trading enterprises. You can avoid the risk of price fluctuations in the precious metal market by buying high and selling low to lock in buying and selling price profits.

For precious metals and downstream enterprises of lead and zinc industry chain. When the raw materials of the enterprise can not keep up in time or the enterprise has a priced sales order, we can buy a hedge at an appropriate price to avoid the loss caused by the price rise.

Medium-and long-term speculative traders can adopt the strategy of building positions on bargains, and medium-and short-term investors can trade according to the upper and lower pressure levels.
