SMM9 March 1: the non-ferrous metals market rose before noon today, with Shanghai zinc, Shanghai lead and Shanghai nickel all up more than 1%, while Shanghai aluminum fell slightly by 0.31%. In terms of aluminum, the latest inventory data of aluminum ingots maintain the characteristics of the off-season. The impact of the current off-season of consumption is still there, leading processing enterprises can maintain smooth start-up, while orders for small and medium-sized enterprises are still low, and the operating rate is not good, but the accumulated stock of aluminum ingots since August is only 50,000 tons, which is lower than expected. according to the current accumulation rate, it is expected that the growth rate of domestic demand in August will remain at about 10% compared with the same period last year. The current stock accumulation speed is limited in the off-season, and the support of low inventory is very strong. We should pay attention to the downward rhythm of aluminum prices and the follow-up inventory situation.
In terms of lead, from a fundamental point of view, some primary lead smelters such as Yunnan Chihong finished maintenance in August and resumed normal production. However, according to SMM research, a smelter recently began maintenance, which is expected to affect for a month. The output of the primary lead smelter is offset by the increase and decrease, and the production of the primary lead smelter is expected to be stable in September. SMM believes that the increase of recycled lead may still exist in September, while the lead battery consumption season is sluggish, the possibility of increasing purchasing demand from battery factories is unlikely, the overall trend of oversupply is still there, and the fundamentals are difficult to increase the upward force for lead prices, but the price of waste batteries may become a support, and lead prices are expected to maintain a volatile trend in the early September. "check details.
In terms of black, iron ore rose 0.18%, hot coil rose 1.23%, and thread rose 0.35%. Recently, there have been frequent rumors of tightening production restrictions in Tangshan, according to feedback from industry insiders, at present, individual regions are strictly implemented, but due to short-term restrictions, the impact is relatively limited. Moreover, according to the calculation of the SMM data model, based on the calculation of 125.15 US Gold Mine, the rebar profit of the long process steel plant has rebounded by 75 yuan / ton to about 117yuan / ton compared with the beginning of last week, and the hot coil profit remains at about 290yuan / ton, the production enthusiasm of the steel mill has not abated, and the demand for iron ore and other raw materials remains high. In September, we still need to pay attention to the impact of production restrictions on iron ore demand in Tangshan area.
