Market analysis

SMM analysis: Shanghai nickel afternoon diving decline was close to 2% supply-side tight support logic will be loosened? Today, Shanghai Nickel opened down, falling nearly 2% in the afternoon, and then recovered. By the end of the day, the main contract of Shanghai Nickel 2011 was at 117540 yuan / ton, down 1.17%. The fundamental focus of nickel price is still inclined to the nickel ore-nickel iron-stainless steel industry line. The price of nickel ore has risen all the way under the condition of considerable shortage of supply. The high price of Ferro nickel has been supported by both raw material support and tight supply. The mentality of high production in stainless steel plants has not been significantly reduced for the time being. This production line still has a strong support for nickel price. However, the fluctuation of macro factors has obviously disturbed the price of nickel in the short term. Today, the price of nickel seems to have fallen sharply due to the influence of capital sentiment in the afternoon. However, the US dollar index fell rapidly after the close of trading in Shanghai, and Lunni immediately went back to intraday highs, followed the Fed's interest rate resolution in the evening, and is expected to maintain loose liquidity. Short-term Shanghai Nickel may continue to fluctuate at 117000-120000 yuan / ton and Lunni 15100-15400 US dollars / ton.
