SMM7 March 24: the non-ferrous market rose across the board in the morning, with Shanghai Nickel up 2.93% and Shanghai lead and Tin up more than 1%, but some metals opened lower due to the continued fermentation of the Chinese and US embassies and the sharp fall in the stock market. Shanghai nickel high shock, Tesla CEO recently called on miners to produce more nickel, new energy nickel is expected to rise again, overnight nickel prices rose sharply. Recently, tensions between China and the United States have continued to escalate, market risk aversion is high, and the overall change in nickel fundamentals is limited, which is still dominated by macro-economy. In terms of lead, Xia Wenming, a senior analyst for the lead industry at SMM, said at the "2020 (15th) lead and Zinc Summit" that the production characteristics of recycled lead enterprises are profit-oriented, profits of recycled lead are gradually repaired in mid-March, new capacity expansion is gradually put into operation, and production of recycled lead is ramping up in the second quarter, but there is a lack of production and marketing in the first quarter. In the first half of 2020, recycled lead production was 960000 tons, a negative increase of 5.4% compared with the same period last year. Whether the peak consumption season in the third quarter comes as promised has become a key factor in the subsequent rise in lead prices. At the same time, the addition of recycled lead will continue to interfere with the pace of lead price increases in stages, and the environmental protection factor in previous years has become a marginal factor.

In the later stage, after the water level falls and the flood recedes, the market will return to normal.
