Today's nickel price trend V word, in the afternoon to recover some of the decline, as of today's day close, Shanghai nickel main contract 2011 at 116150 yuan / ton, down 0.33%, once fell to 114730 yuan / ton, the lowest since August 20. SMM believes that macro factors triggered market panic, not only gold and silver and other safe-haven assets were affected, basic metals were also affected. From a fundamental point of view, the peak of stainless steel prices and increased profit pressure are the factors restricting the upward rise of nickel prices, but they are not the decisive factors in the near future. spot nickel prices are strong, and nickel pig iron has little room to fall. There is still a gap between the supply and demand of primary nickel in the third quarter, so the decline in nickel prices may not be a long-term trend. at present, macro sentiment and bears have the upper hand, making it difficult for nickel prices to rebound quickly. It is expected that the near-term nickel price in the current position near the shock consolidation is mainly, or can look forward to later repair.

[SMM's point of view] Shanghai Nickel V-shaped recovery part of the decline is expected to be dominated by the recent shock consolidation of nickel prices.
