Nickel spot

 

Nickel spot: today's futures nickel continues to fluctuate around 119000 yuan / ton, the nickel market continues to strengthen, but the spot downstream demand is difficult to sustain, the morning nickel spot report is more than less, and the trading volume is not as good as yesterday. In terms of quotation, some holders have quoted prices for Shanghai Nickel 11 contracts, but the main prices are still quoted for 10 contracts. Russo Nickel to Shanghai Nickel 10 contracts are quoted at 300 to 250 yuan / ton, and 11 contracts are quoted at about 500 yuan / ton. Jinchuan Nickel rose about 1600-1800 yuan / ton for Shanghai Nickel 10 contract and about 1500 yuan / ton for Shanghai Nickel 11 contract. Because the actual price has exceeded 120000 after Jinchuan rising water, it makes users hold a wait-and-see attitude for the time being, so the market performance is both weak in supply and demand. The ex-factory price of Jinchuan is quoted at 120300 yuan / ton, and the manufacturer continues to ship a moderate amount of goods in Gansu. Nickel beans quoted 600 to 400 yuan per ton for Shanghai Nickel 10 contract, and the deal was also poor.
