The concussion mode is expected to be maintained in the short term. In terms of zinc in Shanghai, Sino-US relations have continued to ferment, undermining market confidence, but during the peak consumption season downstream, export data have also improved, and the willingness to pick up goods downstream of the zinc price callback has led to going to the warehouse to provide support for zinc prices.

Crude oil fell nearly 1.8% in the previous period, while U.S. oil fell on Monday after Saudi Arabia cut the price of crude oil to Asia by the most in five months, and uncertainty surrounding Chinese demand overshadowed the market recovery. Customs data released by China on Monday showed that crude oil imports fell and oil exports increased in August, according to the data. Another factor contributing to the pressure on oil prices is that US companies have increased drilling activity in the wake of the recent recovery in oil prices.

In terms of precious metals, Shanghai gold fell 0.1%, Shanghai silver was flat, and international spot gold prices fell on Monday as the dollar strengthened, but economic uncertainty held back gold prices, and investors are waiting for the central bank to move. Analysts point out that the rising dollar is a drag on gold, but longer-term uncertainty that continues to haunt the market supports gold prices.
