SMM7 March 31: Friday morning, most of the non-ferrous market floating green, although the morning PMI data rose 0.2% over the previous month, 5 consecutive months above the critical point, but the disk impact is limited, near midday most metals weakened again. Shanghai copper recently fluctuated sideways, the analysis believes that first of all, after the release of capital sentiment, the market needs to regain momentum. Coupled with the domestic downstream into the off-season, copper stocks continue to rise, copper prices rise weakly. Short-term copper prices are still mainly adjusted, and medium-and long-term copper prices still have room to rise. Shanghai Aluminum has risen strongly recently, mainly because the US dollar continues to weaken due to the Fed's loose monetary policy, and abundant market liquidity makes funds continue to be enthusiastic about non-ferrous metals. Although the investment of new capacity has accelerated somewhat, it is actually realized that the increase in production will be relatively limited, so the supply pressure will not appear in the short term; and after the summer enters the traditional peak season of demand for aluminum, when the real estate back-end and power grid investment pull, demand will be more optimistic.

Black low open high, narrow range shock, rebar spot price has suppressed under the support. On the one hand, the supply side is steadily increasing. According to SMM research, as of July 28, the operating rate of electric arc furnaces in East China increased by 4% month-on-month compared with last week. At the same time, inventories are high, and social treasuries in major cities in eastern China are significantly higher than last year, which continues to suppress spot prices. On the other hand, demand is continuing to recover. According to the research data of SMM, about 38% of the terminal enterprises are expected to increase their steel purchases in August. Coupled with the strong price of raw materials caused by the willingness of steel mills to continue to strengthen, there is still support at the bottom of steel prices.

Crude oil fell 1.98% in the previous period. International oil prices have rebounded further from a three-week low hit the previous session after a record contraction in US economic data hit the market. Brent crude futures rose 36 cents, or 0.8 percent, to $43.61 a barrel. The contract fell 1.9 per cent on Thursday, but has recovered most of its losses since its low on July 10. Us crude oil futures rose 31 cents, or 0.8%, to $40.23 a barrel. It fell 3.3 per cent in the previous session and has rebounded from its low since July 10.
